Discover Project – Musicians Inspiring Musicians
Welcome to the new and improved Listening Edge Records! Listening Edge Records is now part of my music education company Bach To Basics, and LER’s new focus is to help inspire new musicians of all skill levels and ages. Quite often the only music, students are exposed to, is that of what they hear on the radio. Listening Edge Records wants to give musicians of all types and skill levels a chance to inspire new minds, ignite a passion for music, and yes perhaps even pick up a few fans along the way.
The questions asked in the interviews go beyond “Where are you playing next?” “What is your favourite band?”, to include some thought provoking questions such as “What role do you feel music plays in our society?” The idea is to dig a little deeper and let music students know the thoughts of others within the music community. All musicians from the basement beat maker, to the seasoned professional, can share and inspire, and the new LER website hopes to be the venue for such interactions.
If you are a singer, songwriter, instrumentalist, composer, producer, audio engineer, amateur or professional musician, who is passionate about your music and would like to inspire young musicians please take the time to complete the Listening Edge Records online interview. The interview can be completed in as little as 5-10 minutes, and consists of 5-20 optional question sets, allowing each interview to be different and more relevant to the artists being interviewed and more interesting to potential fans.
Helping inspire students may even have additional benefits beyond inspiring young minds. The reality is “word of mouth” is very powerful, and if 40-50 students hear your music, and tell 10 of their friends about what they’ve heard in their lessons, that’s potential exposure to 500 fans. In addition my hope is that other music teachers and educators will use this website to help inspire, and expose their students to different music and artists beyond what many hear on the radio. While I don’t control “word of mouth” we know nothing makes you feel better than helping inspire others to pursue their passion for music.
Thank you for taking the time to inspire young musicians.
Sincerly,Trevor Baron President Listening Edge Records www.listeningedgerecords.com
