Your Daily Music Lesson With Walt

Posted on by

Recently I’ve seen an increase in out of the box thinking on Ustream – Comics drawing new strips on camera, cooking shows, screen casts of new video games, the list is endless…

Now we have music lessons. The teacher, singer-guitar-player- extraordinaire, goes by “Walt”.

Using our co-host feature he encourages willing viewers come on and perform their various musical talents – giving them a chance to have some one of one time. His show is well produced, consistent, and he posts on Twitter whenever he goes live – Walt gets it.

According to his bio Walt started playing guitar at the age of 16. He has an associates degree in Jazz Performance and a Bachelor’s in Music Composition. Over 50,000 total Ustream viewers and 750+ YouTube subscribers. Walt’s audience is growing rapidly and shows no signs of slowing down – at this speed he’s going to teach the entire world to sing and then he’ll have nothing left to teach!

Walt – Ustream commends you on your expertise in music and your ability to captivate an audience and handle a class of over 200. Keep it up.

P.S. – We usually post on Twitter when he goes live, so follow us here and subscribe to our blog here.

Penny Arcade Draws Comics Live – Creativity to the MAX!

Posted on by

Penny Arcade, the epic top dog of all internet comics, has started using Ustream! In an amazing example of creativity the creators of Penny Arcade have been drawing the comics live!Penny Arcade - “Cookie BRB”

It takes a creative forward thinker to fully take advantage of live video. Unlike television shows, or even live television, Ustream allows you to interact with your viewers. Now with television in mind you wouldn’t know what to do with this – you’d sit there doing your show but fail to acknowledge your viewers. Penny Arcade isn’t even thinking of TV. They’re thinking internets and only internets. The show is awesome.

Not only do they draw the new comics in front of a thousand fans – they talk to the chat by scribbling words across the comic! “getting a cookie BRB” or “hi user3434″ isn’t a rare sight on the Penny Arcade live stream.

Its so exciting to see the many ways people think up to use Ustream. Classrooms, eclipses, speeches, tech shows, voice lessons, and now comics drawn in front of yours eyes. I wonder what will be on tomorrow…
