In this issue…


Find Glyn Madden on You Tube
For the past few years I’ve been adding videos to YouTube to showcase some of the software I’ve produced for the ‘Registration Builder’ and ‘Music Chef’ workshops in the magazine.  The latest series is called ‘Chord Trax’ and this will continue through to the June/July edition of the magazine.  Chord Trax No.4 is now available for subscribers to the magazine to download, although there is no YouTube video for this one. Instead, an mp3 audio file is included with the download. If you get time to visit my YouTube Channel please subscribe to the channel (free) and give the video a ‘like’ if you’ve enjoyed it.  Thank you!

Find Penny Weedon on You Tube
In a recent magazine we mentioned Penny Weedon’s new venture with online ‘tutorials’ about music – based on the countless workshops she’s presented around the country during her career. You’ll find her ‘Music For Good’ on YouTube by clicking the link.
