In LIVE FROM SLAM - TONIGHT!
From award-winning singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer Kate MacLeod: Sing Your Heart Out - 'Teach Your Children Well' Episode: This week’s streaming episode is a fundraiser for SLAM: Salt Lake Academy of Music, a nonprofit organization with a vision to provide free and sliding fee individual and group music lessons, use of recording equipment, and performance opportunities for K-12, and seniors. Like so many other organizations during this time, this amazing school of music is struggling to keep operations going through the economic challenges of the coronavirus pandemic. I invite you to join us for an hour of inspiring music and to learn about what a gift SLAM is to the Salt Lake City community from special guest and SLAM rock music director, Terence Hansen. We will be streaming live online at my Facebook musician page: www.facebook.com/katemacleodmusic/live/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/macleodkate and at SLAM: Salt Lake Academy of Music on Facebook. Sing with me, or just listen to this streaming program. Created during the coronavirus crisis, this show is designed to lift our spirits (including mine), so if you’re in financial distress, know that tips are appreciated, but TOTALLY optional. VIRTUAL TIP JARS: Paypal.me/macleodkate or Venmo: Kate-Macleod-5 This was entirely Kate's idea. Kate is generously donating 50% of proceeds to SLAM! @alanlmarkham @alyssalishenko @anaumer @Brandie Condie @Britnee Delvar @Camden Ray @Casey Frederick @Chris Petty @Connor Bliss @debbiedrabner @Dee Man @Elizabeth Schweitz @emmamarieroberts @george wilkes @Grant Matheson @Hailey_ Bird @imdestinydude007 @janabythesea @jaredhutchings @jenniferhgranger @Jimi Nez @Joe Chisholm @Joe Widmer @juniperthimble @kdiller5 @Kim Nolan @local1696 @Luke Hutchings @Marci Bliss @Mark Drabner @mgbuchs45 @Noah Drabner @Old Deidrik @Patrick Gregory @RainDelvar @Rhonny Kāne @Sam Cottrell @Scott Widmer @Steve Auerbach @Tallulah Schweitz @Tega Hamlin @Terence Hansen @Tia Shipley

Going forward, one consideration is to have all students and staff tested for antibodies. Lessons are still online for the time being. Any questions?

You can download Reaper at reaper.fm. It is open-source software that is free/donation ($60) based purchase, safe and works great. Using Reaper, GarageBand and Logic are all every similar. Ableton is a bit different. Hope to see you at 6 pm! Steve @Connor Bliss @mgbuchs45 @Tallulah Schweitz @Joe Widmer @Jimi Nez @Old Deidrik @Noah Drabner @Luke Hutchings @imdestinydude007 @Tega Hamlin
