One of my most popular offerins is Daily Ukulele Practice Time with Danno, and I wanted to let you know that I’m FINALLY slowly moving all the videos from the live sessions over here to the website with one simple goal: to make these sessions
so you can find all those musical needles in haystacks — exactly what you want, exactly when you need it.
Searchable and Sortable — not as easy as it sounds
Because we do the Ukulele Practices Sessions every single weekday (!), there’s a ton of useful info being generated. And, unlike my pre-made video courses (here), the content ranges wildly from topic to topic, based on questions you ask and/or my whim of the day.
So just posting the videos here would not be helpful. There’s just too much info to get through.
Video is one of the very best ways to learn, but one of the hardest when it comes to find specific content.
For you, my ukulele babies, I only want the very best, and after trying about thirty-six other methods, I’ve come across an amazing tool called Sonix (here) that does every I want (and you do, too, though you may not know it yet).
Let me show you why Sonix is so amazing
And how it’s going to help you find exactly what you need.
The Sonix app actual LISTENS to my video and creates a shockinly good transription of every word I say in the lesson. (That’s what you’re seeing on the right in the image above.)
Now I *could* just copy that text onto the lesson page, and that would be a little better than nothing. At least there would be some text for you to seach for.
But It Gets Better
Sonix takes this several steps further.
On my end of things, I can edit the video — taking out all the boring asides so you don’t have to sit through that — and —
The magical part for me is that I can do this video edity by literally editing the text! (Let that sink in…)
YOU benefit because the editing is so fast and easy that I’m much more inclined to do a thorough job, leaving you with a much simpler, cleaner end product — meaning YOU will be much more inclined to sit through the video and learn from it. NICE!
And Better Still
Honestly, until I found Sonix, I wasn’t sure I would go through with this project. We have something like 150 Ukulele Practice Sessions, with more coming all the time. The only way to make this much video useful is if it’s searchable and sortable.
Lookit how Sonix handles this:
(This is jokey video I made when Mitt Romney was running for president).
- The full text of the video is shown below — which means when you search my site, all this text available, so you can find the lesson you need, and
- The text is clickable! Read or search throught the text for any word or phrase. When you click on it, you go to exactly that spot in the video!
So combine this amazing video presentation with the lesson-specific search box (below), and you will now be able to home in on exactly the info you need to suit your mood and uke-learnin’ needs.
Please give it a try and let me know what you think!
