It's March!




I know I am always saying that what I have to say is important, but it’s really how I feel! Of course!

So read over this table of contents, decide what’s relevantly important to you, and scroll down for the details.


Just a reminder the
March survey is going on, if
you come into the Co-Op prepare to spen
d a couple minutes with Rachel answering some questions about who you are and your finances over the last two years to collect info needed to secure our funding.

Thank you to YOU
First off, thank you to those members who helped put on the fundraisers we had a couple weeks ago. We were able to raise some money for our Co-Op and also let more people know about who we are and what we do!
But a very special and loud thanks to those of you who came out and donated to help us continue the work we do.

Thank you to Show & Tell Productions
And a big warm thank you to Paul over at Show & Tell Productions for donating not one, not two, not three, but FOUR awesome brand new guitars. We now have two electrics and two acoustic-electrics for your recording pleasure and are so thankful to Paul. If you ever need live sound for an event, give that man a ring!

New Equipment is in!!!
YES! THAT’S RIGHT!

We now have a brand spanking new 27” imac with the latest Pro Tools LE & Final Cut Pro Suite 3!!
I AM SO EXCITED! Just give me a day to do some rearranging before you all start running in. Thanks to the Louisiana Cultural Economy Foundation for providing us with a grant to get the new equipment.

Valcour/Tip’s song contest returns!

That’s right! Valcour Records and the Tipitina’
s Music Office Co-Op are teaming up again with the Song Contest! For the month of April, come into the Co-Op and do the best recording you can in only 3 hours! At the end of the month, I’ll send them all off to the guys over in Eunice & they’ll pick their favorite (it’s hard to do!) and the winner will receive a spotlight as Artist of the Month on the Valcour Records website, $200 cash, and a year membership to the Co-Op! Details are forthcoming, but if you just can’t wait contact me and I’ll fill you in.


March Workshops: Grants & Final Cut Pro 202
We’ve got two great workshops this month, check em out!

Thurs, March 18th, 5:30 – Gwen Richard presents: Grants

Grants are one of the keys to making money as an artist, but it can be hard to wrap your finger around which ones are right for you and just how to write them. Gwen works with the grants over at the Acadiana Center for the Arts and will be giving a presentation to help you know about grants that are available and the best way to get them.


Wed, March 31st 5:30 – Final Cut Pro 202 with David Webber
Final Cut Pro is the industry standard for editing video. David taught FCP 101 recently, and for those of you who already know how to start your own project but need a boost in your ways of editing, etc, in FCP
202 we will learn ways of creating great projects in simple ways that make sense. There may even be pre-class homework, but I’ll let you know before hand if so. The way David Webber teaches, you feel like he could teach you to sit on the beach in cool, dark sunglasses drinking your favorite beverage out of a coconut. He’s that good at empowering you.
