Student Spotlight - Pam Johnson

Pam Johnson, a former high school and college trumpeter, decided to resume music lessons after years of self imposed exile.

"I decided to try something challenging" she says with a laugh, "so I chose french horn. I've really  missed having music in my life".  

Pam has been studying at DSM and using the MusickEd curriculum for just over month.  She began with the Discovery Series but is anxious to start using the Kore Series this week.  "The new software looks great and seems a little easier to navigate."  

Because of her previous musical background she is already in Lesson 4. Pam's instructor, DSM and MusickEd Partner Gary Feltner says "she's doing remarkably well, especially considering the short amount of time she's been studying." 

 Way to go Pam, we're proud of you. And keep up the great work!

MusickEd Launches New Subscription Service with 1 Day Free Trial went live with a brand new subscription based website over Memorial Day weekend. The covert launch comes after a 4 year re-tooling of the entire Discovery Series.  The new Kore Series ushers in a new era from 'purchase and download' to a more immediate, 'subscribe and use' format. 

The new site gives users instant access to 20 lessons of the Kore Series and all of the support pages.  3 month or yearly subscriptions are available and there is even a 24 hour FREE TRIAL so that potential subscribers can see the wealth of information that's available.

"The free trial really lets users get a sense of the full MusickEd experience" say Bob Lawrence. "They have time to sample all of the lesson material and quizzes, hear the songs and amazing orchestrations, check in on our community and of course access all of the support pages. We feel that if they have a chance to see and use the product,  then they'll wind up subscribing."

Now the attention turns to site management with community content, videos and support material being added daily.  "We can also start a full blown marketing campaign" says Lawrence, "something we have not been able to do as of yet." 

"We'll monitor traffic over the next few weeks and tweak things as we go. It should be lots of fun to watch it all unfold!"
