Here are some helpful links and prices for the equipment I mentioned — I own all of these items and highly recommend them.

Here are some general thoughts and tips related to recording and sharing your music the DIY way.

  • Remember that the music itself is the most important ingredient, not the equipment you use to record it.
  • Try to sing and/or play from memory when recording. It makes a huge difference in the quality of your sound, believe it or not!
  • You don’t have to amass an entire home recording studio all at once. I started with a computer and a microphone, nothing more.
  • Don’t over-complicate a song with gratuitous tracks and sounds. Simple is best in many cases, especially when recording for your students and/or clients.
  • I recommend using Limelight for cover song clearance and licensing.
