In this OpEd from a former Soundfly student, we explore the effective active learning approaches key to getting the most out of any learning experience.

Although we’ve been happy with our lender (and grateful to be in our house), in hindsight the process may have gone smoother had we gone to one of the Music Row banks. We were also thrown for a loop every time they asked for more documentation, or more details, or letters from our bosses.

I have to admit something. I’ve actually been leaving music and TV shows on for my dog since I got him as a puppy 10 years ago. I always feel terrible leaving him at home when I go out, and so I figured this was a way to help him feel a little less lonely. Usually, for TV it’s some kind of old-time show (he loves that stuff) and for music I’d just throw on a random playlist that Spotify suggested.
One San Juan bar and music venue, however, has transformed itself into an oasis of help and support. El Local has been a boon to the area’s independent music and art scene for years, but now they’re also a resource for people in need: They’re serving meals in a volunteer-run community kitchen, open from morning until evening and closing up just before the government-instated 9:00 p.m. curfew. A food bank filled with mostly non-perishables is continually replenished by donations.
Our customized goal-oriented music mentorship program Headliners Club is built around proven behavioural science research. Learn why it works so well here.
All of our mentored online courses come with six weeks of 1-on-1 professional coaching and feedback on your work. It’s like having a personal trainer, but for music! Share your goals with us and we’ll find a course for you, or create a custom mentorship session with a pro musician, engineer, educator, or music industry veteran, to help you achieve them.
The Headliners Club is kind of like a “build your own customized course.” If you need help on a specific project that doesn’t quite fit within one of our courses, you’ll be able to work with a Soundfly Mentor one-on-one to create a customized one-month learning program specifically tailored to your needs and goals.

On this day, 57 years ago, James Brown and his Famous Flames recorded what would become one of the most earth-shattering funk and soul albums of all time.
All of these ideas are widely applicable to many genres and can carry over to other box shapes on the guitar. Try experimenting with different combinations and creating your own lines! If you want even more of a workout, try to move some of the licks into fifth position (root on the A string).
This course is for producers, rappers, musicians, songwriters, and even people with no prior knowledge of hip-hop whatsoever who want to learn their way around the genre and culture of hip-hop and get their feet wet immediately.

No matter what your intentions, we’ll help you make some great music at home.
With all of Logic’s inredible instruments, producers often rely on the sound of the samples right out of the box, here’s how to make them more interesting.
Eventually, the bass line drops down an octave and changes its stubborn pedaling to play chord tones along with the rest of the rhythm section. It starts with the same old D and A. Next, it moves to C♯ and A for the A chord. Then it moves to the B chord but still keeps the pressure on with that non-chord-tone A. Finally, it rounds off with a pleasant, resolute walk-up, bouncing back up between notes of the major scale and A, which is the root of the chord. Classic!
