Hi… quick reminder our next meeting is on Tuesday, April 14th, which might seem out of sync, but March 31st was on Tuesday, blame it on the moon or something.
In our annual planning meeting in February, y’all indicated that you would like to dedicate one of our monthly meetings to learning how to record demos. Well, you spoke and we listened! While Fiona was in Nashville last week, she made arrangements to bring us a special speaker for this month’s meeting! The speaker for our April 14th Charlotte NSAI meeting will be artist/producer/ songwriter Kim Copeland, of Kim Copeland Productions, Nashville (www.kimcopelandproductions.com). Kim will be talking about how to record demos, how to prepare for a demo recording session, and the ten most common mistakes people make in recording demos and how to avoid them, and she’ll be answering your questions about the whole demo process. Kim will be talking to us by way of Skype over the Internet, the way Hugh Prestwood did at our January meeting. It’s a meeting you won’t want to miss!
BTW, we just posted Fiona’s document on critiques, and added a FAQ entry on the subject for the sake of posterity. We’d like to ask everyone to download a copy and get familiar with its content. The goal is to ensure we come prepared to participate in each meeting’s critique session, both as writers as well as providers of feedback. As usual, please don’t hesitate to contact one of our coordinators with questions, comments, or concerns.
FYI, did you know NSAI has Flex Pay options? Yes, you can pay $50 3-times a years to minimize the impact of the cost of your membership. Please go to the main NSAI page for more information.
That’s all for now… we’ll have an agenda out by end of this week, hope everyone enjoyed the beautiful weekend weather!
