    Why bother?

Why? The Musicarta newsletter aims to get you acquainted with the contents of the Musicarta site – in regular, manageable monthly slices.

With over 100 pages of creative stimulus and applicable music theory, Musicarta is a big site – and growing – but internet browsers are a notoriously poor way of getting an ‘aerial view’ of anything - Google Earth excepted!

As a result, there might well be material on the Musicarta site which is just what you want or need but which you don’t know about.

For example, did you know about...

The Musicarta
BEAT AND RHYTHM WORKBOOK

Popular music has a strong rhythmic component – and the modern-styles keyboard player needs well-developed beat and rhythm skills just as much as any other instrumentalist.

The Musicarta Beat and Rhythm Workbook includes three full lesson series that will give you absolutely the best chance to get over the hump and master pro two-handed syncopation!

Who - and what - is Musicarta for?

    Ambitious (young) musos!

Musicarta aims to help you – anyone! - become a complete modern keyboard player. But it’s a lengthy business – what to study, and how? Learning keys, finding chords, reading chord symbols, building syncopation and aural skills – there’s a lot to learn, and Musicarta is packed with the curriculum material you need. Use the Musicarta newsletter to get acquainted with the site, guide your studies, and stay inspired and on track.

    Classical crossovers and adult re-starters/continuers

If you can already play the keyboard proficiently but are looking to broaden your musical horizons, Musicarta hosts dozens of starting points for your creative development. Adult re-starters particularly will enjoy the new piano-playing directions Musicarta opens up. Let Musicarta News keep your creative juices flowing and prompt you to try something new!

    Ongoing professional development

Those ‘really useful’ musicians who truly succeed in the business usually have a personal ethic of constant skills development. You can always broaden or deepen your understanding, play better or venture into new areas. But continuing professional development can be quite a solitary business, and outside stimulus and orientation is invaluable. The Musicarta newsletter can be a helpful traveling companion in your efforts.

    For teachers

Musicarta is great for music teachers. Today’s music pupils are demanding a more rounded and relevant musical curriculum, and Musicarta hosts plenty of ready-to-roll material for teaching theory, harmony and improvisation in an attractive, contemporary way. Teachers and mentors generally will find great ‘Copy this!’ material for young pupils. Let the Musicarta newsletter introduce you to this unique teaching resource!

How often will I get the Musicarta News
- and what will be in it?

Your copy of the Musicarta News will be e-mailed to you around the middle of each month. It will contain:

  • An overview of Musicarta – from a changing monthly perspective.

  • A more detailed exploration of one of Musicarta’s main lesson series’, with direct links to relevant free downloads.

  • A keyboard challenge – something to play, to finish, to work out… (‘Answers at the back of the book’!)

  • Announcements and previews of new Musicarta material.

  • Provocative, inspiring thoughts, and new takes on old keyboard chestnuts.

    Spam-free!

The Musicarta newsletter is not a thinly-disguised sales page! Musicarta is a free, ‘personal mission’ site dedicated to sharing relevant, up-to-date musical knowledge and expertise, and Musicarta News is a vehicle only for furthering this aim. There will never be any third-party advertising in the newsletter.
