Balloon Artist San Diego- How To Make A Balloon Hat

Balloon Artist San Diego Series- How to make a 2- balloon spiral hat

First of all, its a lot easier to follow the instructions in a video format rather than in a written format. For best results visit my YouTube channel under the channel name Sandiballoon.
Now, having issued that disclaimer, here are the instructions:
1.Take a 260 and inflate it all the way giving it a good burp. Its important that the balloon be mostly inflated. If youre worried about overinflating, then inflate all the way leaving only about a thumbtip size portion uninflated.
2.Twist off a bubble, and HOLD it while you wrap the balloon around head. Find the point where the bubble you are holding and the balloon wrapped around the head criss-cross. Squeeze them together and twist them together. You now have a stick hat.
3.Inflate a second balloon the same way you did for the first. Once again, fully inflate and give a good burp to release the pressure a little.
4.Twist off a small bubble on the nozzle end, and attach it to the small bubble on the hat.
5.Spiral the two sticks together. Its a bit easier if you are sitting down and use your knees hold the hat and stick at the base while you spiral them. It should look a bit like a barber shop pole. When you reach the end of the shorter balloon, squeeze and twist the two balloons together to lock them.
6.Find the center of the hat at the back (directly opposite of the sticks). Pinch the center point and twist ONE SIDE of the hat. This puts an attachment point at the back that will make the next step much easier.
7.Twist a bubble at the end of the free stick. Make sure that you hold onto the bubble until you lock it to the hat.
8.Twist the bubble into the attachment point that you made at the back of the hat. The hat should now have a sort of triangular shape.
9.Take the balloon at the top of the hat, towards the back and give it a little shape by squeezing the air out of the balloon (in that area) and slowly letting it back into that space. This will train the balloon to keep that shape. Play with putting that bend in various places and see the different shaped hats that you get.
10.Place the hat on the head, smile big and take a picture!

Selling Musical Instruments

The old business model for selling musical instruments is being shattered, thanks in large part to the Internet and the large retail chains.

The opening of many online stores selling musical instruments is good news to music lovers as you can now better compare prices as well as look at customer reviews.

Here are a few examples of online stores selling musical instruments:-

Music, formerly known as Brasswind and Percussion Trading is currently one of the popular stores that retails musical scores, instruments and accessories to wind bands ranging from primary schools to professional ones.

Alamo Music Center, a store selling musical instruments, is the site for viewing custom-made instruments of Marclay’s design: a drum set that has been altered with cymbals and drums positioned at heights corresponding to their tonal qualities and a customized 12-foot long accordion.

A good music instrument store will offer deals on the hottest music gear. Music123 is one such store that has a wide selection of musical instruments and musical equipment.

Craft Central, is a site that contains information about musical instruments and other related products. Products include wind instruments, keyboard instruments, musical accessories, amplifiers, cases, DJ equipment, guitars, electric guitars, microphones, percussion instruments such as drums, snare drums, string instruments and much more. Over 25 different manufacturers among these products. The site has over 700 different products currently available.

As an alternative to selling musical instruments as an employee of a business, you may want to consider starting a business of your own.

You will find that there are good profit margins selling musical instruments and you would be making money selling something you know and love.

Retailing musical instruments can be a great business venture for the musically inclined entrepreneur who’s seeking a way to capitalize on their skills and interests. To be successful in a musical instrument business, you will need to do your research on the following – competitors, wholesale suppliers and distributors, business location, source of funding, product delivery methods, business policies such as refunds, warranties just to name a few.

Ideally, this type of specialty retailing is best suited to a retail storefront. However, for the financially challenged entrepreneur, the business could begin on a part-time basis from home; as a joint venture with a like-minded retailer, such as a CD shop; or online.

To supplement your income from selling musical instruments, there are complementary ways to do this by offering instrument repairs, classes, rentals, and sales of related products such as sheet music. Also, be sure to establish relationships with schools, music teachers, associations and clubs in the community. This can be a fantastic way to promote your business, products and services quickly as word-of-mouth advertising and referrals really work.

How to be a Successful Vocalist

Who is a Vocalist?

A Vocalist is a person who uses his or her voice to produce music. Often the singer is accompanied by musicians and instruments.

Vocalizing is a talent which seems to come easily for many individuals. For other individuals, this particular capability has to be practiced.

Tips to be a good vocalist:

It will not only help you to become a better vocalist, but also reduce emotional stress and/or possible embarrassment.

Vary your experience:

Practice singing as much as you can. Try groups, small ensembles, solo or personal coaching etc. The more you practice singing in a variety of singing activities, the more comfortable and confident you will feel about your voice.

Be a good observer:

You need to be a good listener before you want to be a singer. Try to observe Vocalists carefully; what makes them to be a good singer? How to control voice variations, how to make use of stage presence? You can even ask for their advice after the show.

Get others opinion:

Try to record your voice and send it to your friends, colleagues and relatives, and ask what they think of it. It is the best practice to keep track of your progress.
