Resources

The following resources are intended to help NCSC members stay informed, network, and access the products and services they need to be successful. The Co-op does not endorse any particular resource. If you have ideas for resources to be included here, please contact the webmaster.

Buying/Selling Equipment

The most reliable and up-to-date resources for buying/selling equipment continue to be Craigslist and eBay. If you’re particularly interested in buying from/selling to NCSC members, feel free to post to our Facebook page.

Collaboration/Co-Writing

Those interested in collaborating on musical projects, finding bandmates, or co-writing are encouraged to use existing online resources to solicit collaborators. Facebook is a great resource. Suggestions include:

Music Associations/Societies

Performance Rights Organizations (PROs)

Promotion

Inexpensive (i.e. free) options for self-promotion are readily available with tools like Facebook and Reverbnation. Or if you are bit web-savvy, build a simple Web site using WordPress.

  • Facebook. Create a Musician/Band page, invite your friends to “Like” it, and build your fan base. Create Events for your gigs and watch your followers join.
  • Reverbnation. “Reverb” is an online service designed especially for musicians, with placeholders for audio, video, performance dates, and more. With Reverbnation, you can have an online presence in less than an hour.
  • WordPress. Create your own Web site. Use the free service at wordpress.com, or if you need more design flexibility, check out wordspress.org.

Publications

There are many online or print publications and Web sites that can help with skill-building (both instrument and vocal), songwriting, and almost anything else you can think of related to music. These resources are full of reviews and ads for great gear, new music, promotion services, and more. Here are just a few:

Recording Studios

There are a number of excellent professional recording studios in North Carolina. To name a few:
