A Blog for Everyday Musicians

This is a blog for everyday musicians.

You might ask: “Who is an everyday musician? Is this guy (Anna) writing the blog as an everyday musician himself? Why is he writing this blog?”

Fair questions.

Who is an everyday musician?

I get to define that for this blog. An everyday musician is a musician who does music every day. Very simple.

“Gee, I guess that rules me out,” you say. “I do music a lot. But every day? I wish.”

Yeah, I know what you mean.

Is this guy writing the blog as an everyday musician himself?

Yes. Perhaps I shouldn’t tell you too soon what kind of music I do, because then you might peg me with, “Oh, he’s that kind of musician.” That’s a little presumptuous of me, to think that you would be so closed minded about this blog, just because I happen to do a different style of music you than you do. Say, if you were at a summer picnic, and some person listening into the conversation about your harmonica quartet, said, “Hey, I’m in a quartet, too, a barbershop,” and you don’t particularly like barbershop, are you going to just let that drop, and continue talking about harmonicas? Of course not.

We everyday musicians do have our special musical interests, no doubt. But we sort of stick together. We have a lot to talk about in our shared interest. This validates that there is a good reason for the existence a blog for everyday musicians.

Why is this guy writing this blog?

There is a collection of reasons why I’m writing this blog. Many of the reasons are usual ones. I’ll be honest about this. This blog is closely related to my business. You knew that was coming. Look, I promise I won’t use this blog as an infomercial for my business. I chose my strange line of business for more noble reasons than just making money. If my business relates to music, you can pretty much guess I’m not making a fortune. I’m in my business because I’m really into helping others make music. I’m a developer of software for, you guessed it, everyday musicians. I’ve been doing this full-time since 1994. More than full time. Too much time. I don’t have enough time to do music. That’s a problem for many everyday musicians.

Do you wish you had more time to make music?
