Johnnie: It started off just as poetry, which then developed into songwriting. After some urging from a friend, I came across MediaTech as I looked up different schools and decided to check it out. Upon coming in, I instantly knew that this was for Read more

“So my child wants to be in the music biz”

When parents hear that their children want to break into the music industry, whether as a musician or on the business side of things, reactions can be decidedly mixed. Some parents go all out trying to help their children reach the stars, while others take the “dream on, kid” approach and others still are semi-supportive but unsure of what it all means. Which group has the right idea? Maybe all of them.

BuzzFest XXVII At The Woodlands

BuzzFest XXVII Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion October 22, 2011 When we first arrived on site to set up the MediaTech booth Saturday morning at the Woodland Pavilion, it was like a ghost town. It was almost too quiet, but we knew that wouldn’t last long. I like to call it “the calm before the storm”.

They filled in the rest of their set with Read more

The Importance of a Recording Timeline

We’ve all been there. The drummer overslept, the guitarist is late, and the bass player has to leave early to hang out with his girlfriend.
