Jay-Z’s Tidal has made many ripples, however the splash seems to have been short lived. The March 2015 buy of Tidal has become a troubling investment for investors at the forefront. One has to ask themselves if Tidal’s business plan makes any sense in a time when consumers see very little value in purchasing music. To expect consumers to pay $9.99 for a standard streaming service and $19.99 for a high-resolution service seems pretty crazy. What’s even more crazy is that Tidal as a company has not properly marketed it’s service to the consumer. Everyone is left in the dark, maybe they are left worrying or maybe they press on to the next service. I believe if Tidal is the biggest thing since MTV, then they should have marketed it like it was.

Music as we know it today is a ready-mix 2:42 “piece”. It doesn’t need to be like that. It is a result of technical limitations of the early day of sound recording, by 10 inch grammophone discs rotation at 78rpm in 1910.

My husband and I are in the process of petitioning our daughter’s HS to allow her to take music theory in lieu of taking Trigonometry. She has aspirations of studying for a BFA in Musical Theatre when she attends college. Music theory would be so much more useful to her choice of career than would trig. I have taken the time to apply each and every Common Core Math Standard to a topic which would be taught in the Music Theory Class. My question, has anyone else thought of doing this? Were you successful? We are confident we can make a case for this and are seeking other musicians opinions.
