Video Editing

Wednesday, March 9th, 2016

When computers don’t work it makes me crazy.

Today was the mid-week video upload day.  In earlier posts I mentioned that we were planning to upload new videos twice a week to get you all started on the demonstration videos to go with our new $2.00 downloadable sheet music.  Well, all was well, I edited the videos in Windows Live Movie Maker as I had done all the others.  But, when I tried to link up to YouTube from within the program, Google informed me that it was an “older, unsecure platform” and refused to acknowledge my login.  Four hours, and 3 video editor download trials later, I finally got one that works wonderfully well.  Wondershare video editor.

So, piano fans, you now have two new videos to check out on YouTube.

Karen playing Bluesy Bounce

and Howard planing Lonesome Road Blues

Stay tuned and there will be more video demos coming this weekend.  In the meantime, check out the $2.00 downloads of our sheet music.

Til next time,

$2.00 Downloadable Sheet Music

Friday, March 4th, 2016

Hey Music Lovers – we have a special series of blog posts and YouTube videos coming just for you.  Here’s a 30 second video on YouTube to quickly explain.  Details below.

New Series Video

It’s true!  We are launching a new series of demonstration videos and matching downloadable sheet music.

How would you like to watch one of us (Howard or Karen) play one of our pieces up close and personal with the camera on our hands so you can see every move.  And then be able to immediately download the sheet music for that piece for only $2.00?  Well that’s what we have been working on.  You can watch the videos as many times as you want as you learn the pieces.

We spent most of January and February recording the videos and uploading the sheet music for you to be able get 1 piece at a time instead of having to buy a whole book and wait for snail mail to deliver it to you.  If you are an international fan – well that would take even longer and cost a lot more.  So….our plan is to release two new videos each week and link to our Downloadable Print Music page so you can watch, instantly download the music and play it for yourself.  Sound like a plan?  We thought so.

Here’s a direct LINK to the Downloadable music page.  If you don’t see one of our pieces that is your favorite for instant download, email us and let us know and we’ll put it on the recordings list.  Of course, if you want to download an entire book, we can negotiate a price for that too, just let us know.

Happy playing.

Howard and Karen

 

First Online Sales!

Monday, March 17th, 2014

Hello dear music lovers.  We are celebrating today.   I began writing music when I was in my late teens and have continued all my life.  Howard began writing when he got out of the Navy – first for the children, and then for students and friends.  We began publishing our music in the 1990s and it was for sale at local music stores and by word of mouth around the country and Canada.  We know the music books are good, people who buy them love them as much as we do.  But we wanted a larger audience for them.

When we redid our website and launched the new and improved ColoradoPowerPiano website we included a listing of 28 music books for sale and a PayPal shopping cart to buy them.  Since January, we have been doing some marketing efforts so that new people can find our music.  And today, Monday, March 17, 2014, we got our first online order for music.  Woo Hoo!  We are SO excited!  You know how it is when you work hard at something and then it starts to pay off.

So, if you want to see what all the shouting is about – take a look at the Print Music part of our website located HERE.

Til next time,

Karen
