IamA Dave, creator of www.daveconservatoire.org - a non-profit online music school trying to make a high quality music education free for everyone - AMA!
Hello, my name is Dave and for the past couple of years I've been building www.daveconservatoire.org a free music education site.
This year over 30,000 people spent over 300,000 minutes in class watching videos and answered over 500,000 exercises correctly. This was a total surprise to me when I was hoping if I could reach just a few people I'd be happy.
Please feel free to ask anything about music, music theory, online education or anything else!
These might be good:
- How can I get started playing <insert instrument here>?
- What is a modulation?
- How do you plan on making the site sustainable?
- Who is your favourite composer?
- How come you know you're listening to a Miles Davis composition within the first two notes?
I'm looking to establish a circle of patrons willing to donate to the site and help me reach more people and take it to the next level. If you think you might be interested in this please visit my page on Patreon here - www.patreon.com/daveconservatoire . Thanks!
EDIT: Right, it is approaching midnight here now, so I'll be off to bed soon. Please feel free to keep asking anything you like - I'll get to them in the morning! It's been a really fun day, I've enjoyed chatting with you all. Thanks for the support and the couple of donations! Dave
