It’s been a great semester here at propel and I’m extremely grateful for this opportunity to pursue my passion in my grade twelve year. The semester is finally coming to a close and I’m beginning to add all the finishing touches to my 5 tracks for my EP. I’ve been meeting with an old friend of mine Ben Sellick who used to teach me piano to learn more about mixing and mastering tracks and in the future, learn music theory at an advanced level. Ben study’s music at the university of Manitoba and is an astonishing piano player. It’s nice to be able to work with him cause he’s young and lessons with him don’t feel so boring because it’s just two guys who are really passionate about music exchanging ideas and having fun. I’m really excited to be able to release my first ever finished project and I thank both my teachers and the propel program for getting me to this point. Over the break I plan on mixing all my tracks with the help of Ben and making sure all sounds are cohesive. I have an idea of adding short skits and talk breaks in between tracks to tie them together nicely. My new Soundcloud is ready and has been gaining a couple followers a week due to the promotion I have been doing on social media, which will help with the overall publicity and listens ill get once my EP is released. I would like to have my EP finished before we get back so that my plan to release it on the 16th will be achievable. As well, that will give me time to focus on my English exam which is also as soon as we get back.
It gets quite busy at my house around Christmas time but I’ll still make time to focus on school. I’m looking forward to this break but at the same time I still have a lot of work to do. I want to make sure this EP is perfect and I can look back on my finished product and be proud of the time and effort I put into it. January 16th will be a day to remember.
