Hudson "Complete" — An Integrated Multi-Media Music Education System With the technology of composing, producing, performing, distributing and teaching music evolving at such a rapid pace, Hudson Music is on a mission to incorporate the advances and advantages of music technology into music education. Hudson's new "Complete" multi-media approach to drum instruction offers teachers and students an integrated system that combines its educational DVDs with companion books and its books with CDs containing play-alongs, printable exercises and audio examples, while also connecting these conventional media with free, high-quality online content, such as audio and video excerpts, supplemental lessons and bonus material.
"Since the advent of videos and DVDs, we've seen drummers' skills and musicianship growing by leaps and bounds," comments Hudson co-founder, Paul Siegel. "Now, with the development of new electronic media options, and the promise of the internet as a teaching tool, we're on the edge of another explosion. At Hudson we feel that the key to maximizing the impact of these emerging technologies on music education is in linking them together. Hudson Complete is designed to connect all the dots and enable players to progress further, faster... and more completely."
To help support both its educational activities and its ever-expanding range of DVDs, Books and CDs, Hudson has also announced a major redesign of the hudsonmusic.com website. The site has a fresh, clean look with streamlined menus that are highly functional and easy to navigate. It also features upgrades such as expanded video content as well as free lessons from Hudson's world-class roster of drum artists that are either taken from existing Hudson titles or produced specifically for the site.
"As a leader in instructional and performance video, it's important for us to be on the cutting edge of content management and delivery, too," states Mike Hoff, Web Manager for Hudson Music.
