Hi,

I hope this is ok with the forum rules, otherwise Dick, please remove my post.
Here is a link to [url=https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/blue-whisper-a-new-album-by-amina-figarova]my piano teacher's fundraiser[/url] for her new and upcoming cd. If you are a keyboard player, the 1hr Skype lesson is a great value.

This is the "open mic" forum, so anyone not posting spam is welcome to introduce us to things like this. P asked in a friendly way, so theres no need to argue about anything here.

If she was the one who taught you how to play P, she deserves support by anyone who has enjoyed your music - I did ;)

I have been doing crowdfunding for CD releases myself before, its a tough game in many aspects.
If anyone thinks crowd-funding was an easy way to collect cash and 10k was asked a lot to produce a CD, go and give it a try yourself sometimes :)
If it wasn't for crowd support, a lot of great non-pop artists would not survive in our days. Anyone interested in listening to other stuff than what they play on the radio today should start to be aware of that IMO.
just my .2 cents

I guess, a musician who plays for free and publishes music worldwide for 12 or 18 thumbs can not expect seriously that other musicians can earn money with their music.

Anyone who thinks this was spam, please feel free to blacklist me.
Frankly, my post wasn't so much about raising money (she has released 12 albums already, with glowing reviews - she'll get this one done, regardless of the crowdfunding results). I just thought I would share with wikiloops the opportunity to take Skype classes with a world-class musician. Now that I live in New York City I have direct access to enough music education to keep me busy for a lifetime, but I remember when it wasn't always the case, and I was trying to learn on my own.

By the way, if anyone is interested in bass lessons on Skype with an international level player, just PM me.

I can tell a difference between a berkley graduate with a 11-album discography, a pro studio and a six-professionals band to feed and someone recording mp3 at home in their free time.

If you feel there is no difference, the above statement may truly be your opinion.

I just wanted to make sure anyone stumbling on this is re-assured there are some people around on wikiloops who know the difference, and who are not offended by requests for support.

The wikiloops blue iguana forum is a place where anyone is allowed to make a fool out of himself within certain boundries. Some actually do.
