Fell Short? Start Again!

Well, I made it to week 3 of the Modern Musician Capstone Course. And I was really struggling because I had not found a DAW (Desktop Audio Workstation) that I liked. Which I knew I would need for this week, so I made sure to ask my peers for recommendations.

Though there were not enough peers to review my revised version of my song, so I had to opt out of the course for now. A new one will resume in April and at first I was bummed out.

Until I realized that this window of opportunity afforded me more time 🙂

More time to look for and test/play around with DAWs. To really hone in on what I want this song to sound like. To bring across the conviction in it that I need – whether it’s in a ballad arrangement or jazz/funk. Also, since I have already completed the first 2 weeks, I will have a leg up on the next course – which is AH-some!

Yeah, having to admit that I fell short of finishing this course sucks. But at least now I know why and now have an opportunity to come back to fix my mistakes. Which will allow me to make this song even better than when I first submitted it.

In the meantime, I will continue to work on a few other songs that I have written. And will post a few cover songs up to my soundcloud too, so stay tuned my Musings!

-Soprano Musings



Music has always been a part of me. No matter how many times I would try to pursue a career in something else I would find myself coming right back to it. So now I am done with running scared. I was all in on this journey. And I'm so glad that I saw it through, because it lead me to something that I love. Something that I didn't think was possible - the ability to become a self published author. For years I have written poems, my thoughts, short stories, and songs. Really it was just therapy to me, but now I want to see where else it can take me too. So I'm learning the social media ropes thanks to all these social media outlets. Also working up my nerve to face the networking scene for the artists and musicians in my hometown too. All with the hopes of connect with others who love music as much as I do. And to make some coin by music and write freelancing. Let's see what happens, shall we?
