See You in June...
As you have noticed, we are taking a little break from our YouTube content. We'll be back in June.
In the meantime, we have plenty of videos, free resources, merch, and books to keep you busy!
See you soon!
We just gave our website new clothes! The landing page has been updated and I now have a couple dedicated pages for my Choral Works and Recordings. Check em out! There are also a few updated pages throughout.
We are always growing and adding new things. See you soon.
A Steady Flow... for a Season
We will be posting new content in three places on three separate days!
Tuesdays - Music Matters Kids YouTube Channel
Wednesdays - Vocal Matters with JAQ Podcast
Thursdays - Music Matters with JAQ YouTube Channel
Your mid-week will never be the same again! Make sure you subscribe so you don't miss a thing.
Vocal Matters with JAQ
Vocal Matters with JAQ is our new podcast!!!
Thank you, thank you!
It will feature all things spoken... lyrics, poems, words, thoughts, short stories...
Each show will be pretty short, but they'll pack a punch.
Hope you'll be listening in!
OUR PODCAST PAGE
Look forward to some new videos on Music Matters Kids!
The Instrument Mini Series will explore the four instrument families and the different instruments associated with each! What is your favorite instrument?
The Solfege Mini Series will continue to dive into the eighth solfeggio syllables and their relationships with each other! Perfect fifth!
Season 2: Now Playing
Hope you are subscribed to our (new-ish) Music Matters with JAQ Channel. Season 2 of MMWJ will be posted there every other week! Instrument Shorts will also be featured on our Channel (posting on the bi-weeks)!
Starting Where We Left Off...
I recently graduated with my MFA in Music Composition from Vermont College of Fine Arts. During my thesis semester, I decided to hold off on creating new content for Music Matters. I did, however, continue to post videos from the queue for Music Matters Kids.
We are now back and getting ready to add finishing touches to Season 2 of Music Matters with JAQ and our Instrument Shorts. We also are finishing 'Max,' our first animated story.
See you soon!
Against a lot of great advice, I decided to divide Music Matters with JAQ and Music Matters Kids!
It doesn't make sense right now, but it will.
Music Matters Kids will be the "CoCo Melon" of Music Theory and Music Matters with JAQ will feature some older content (family friendly still). I have so many ideas and shows... Let's see how long it takes for me to produce the content.
Soon enough friends. Soon enough it will all make sense.
Subscribe to our YouTube Channels, if you haven't.
Music Matters with JAQ added a new YouTube Channel to our family, 'Music Matters with JAQ,' which will feature its namesake show, as well as animation and storytelling videos and music that are geared toward older children, teens, and adults.
Music Matters Kids! will continue to produce kid-friendly content, for children and children at heart!
Music Matters Kids!
Music Matters with JAQ
If you saw yourself from a year ago, would "old" you even recognize "new" you? If you talked to yourself from a year ago, how many things would you have to explain or clear up? We changed. We all have. Some exponentially. The world is drastically different and so are our goals and aspirations.
I am now learning German. I started playing the ukulele and the viola. I want to get my doctorate after I graduate from grad school. I started my own business and am getting ready to make it an LLC. I've changed. We've changed.
I don't believe in coincidences, so I think we were built for these changes. I believe these changes were predesigned and there was no way that we would be able to accomplish our life mission and dreams without these changes. Some days were horrible and some days not so horrible. But everyday, we grew. And even now, every day we grow.
Musical thoughts and brand updates from me to you.
