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”.
Every weekday Walt goes in front of his camera and gives music lessons to 200-300 people. 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.
PlayCafe is ruining my life. They are on for so many hours a week… they’re destroying any productivity I used to have.
If I’d somehow managed to pull away from their entertaining grasp I’m completely screwed now – They’ve incentivized my obsession by bringing in Ken Jennings as a guest host slash player! Ken Jennings! The same man who won 74 games in a row on Jeopardy!
So as a player he’ll be competing against everyone. Now, listen closely, I’m putting my faith in you guys – you must beat him for me. This is your mission. Spread the word and lets discuss in the comments what trivia questions we think will come up (or tweet us @ustreamtv)
Ken Jennings is going down!
