1. Two Young Cats Seek Groovy Home Together (slightly off topic sorry) Jimmy is a dark tortoise shell, digs people and tries to talk, I swear. M is a light tortoise shell, a bit more socially reserved, but fetches as well as any dog. I'm not making this up. Both are less than two years old, house trained,spayed, and in excellent health, according to their vet. We'd love to take them on our OE, but that would be just dumb, wouldn't it. Free to a good home. Please. Thanks, Jeff 307-3457 jeff@slammo.com

2. Music Teachers - list your services on the NZ Musician website The recently relaunched NZ Musician magazine website is going off - but we're missing you! The site includes our Music Tutors Directory, which we want to make just as comprehensive as possible so that musicians can quickly find out which tutors are available. Check it out here: http://www.nzmusician.co.nz/index.php/ps_pagename/teacherdetail/pi_personid/ 1

www.nzmusician.co.nz is attracting around 500 visits a day and growing. The site is a massively valuable resource for musicians, researchers and music lovers. There's an always-fresh news section, a growing collection of online back issues, a musician's help forum, gig guide, lessons - plus, of course, our trusty selection of Directories (currently there are eight - Labels, Studios, Artists, Brands, Equipment Distributors and Educational Institutes, Music Tutors and Producers/Engineers).

Here's all you need to do. If you'd to be included in our Tutors Directory, it will cost you only $20 for a year of online accessibility. To book your spot, or for more information, email renee@nzmusician.co.nz or phone her on 09-373-2572.

3. Auckland live music venue looking for music co-ordinator / promotions person Must have extensive experience in international and NZ music promotions, music industry background and contacts. Must be highly organised, motivated, deadline oriented and be able to work independently. Must have excellent communication skills and dedicated to live music events. Apply in writing by 17 Sept. The Manager, PO Box 6770, Wellesley St.

4. General Manager for Classic Hits & Newstalk ZB in the Wairarapa keen to promote touring bands/musicians If you are touring through the Wellington Region why not consider including the Wairarapa?

As the Manager for Classic Hits, Wairarapa I'm wanting to tap into exclusive artist promo opportunities in my region for the Trev Hill Classic Breakfast Show.

The Wairarapa has a population of 40,000 approx and is often a neglected and grossly underestimated market. Occasionally I have large clients who'd like to book entertainment in the region and pay handsomely.

Over the next year I'd like to feature up and coming (and established) artists who's music fits the genre and our program demographics.

Obviously I'll need to be selective.

If this interests you then please forward a promo kit for the band to:

An exciting new 2 week MAKE A MUSIC VIDEO course will be introduced at South Seas Film/TV School this October. STUDENTS WILL BE LOOKING FOR ARTISTS TO FEATURE IN THESE VIDEOS.

During the two weeks, students will work on the latest technology, broadcast quality cameras to shoot a music video. They'll also discover how the editing process works. There will be a maximum of six students working on each video. Over the first week, they'll learn how to create great images with correct framing, composition, camera angles and movements. They'll also discover how shot sizes are used in the visual narrative process. Week two involves shooting and editing the music video.

These courses have been carefully structured with the aim of producing broadcast standard videos which can be shown on network TV. Public screenings of the videos will also be held in the future.

We see it as a win/win situation. Students learn the basics of film making with a completed, professional looking music video. ARTISTS GET THEIR SONGS ON THE SCREEN!. These courses will appeal to both budding film makers and musicians who want to make their own videos in the future.. It costs only $1200 for the full time two weeks. (60 hours in all).

The emphasis is on FUN. It's the best way to learn, and the best way to produce great results.
