In the vein of Inktober and NaNoWriMo, here are your guidelines for a Musical December:

1. Do something musical everyday for 15 minutes. Practicing an instrument, singing, recording, writing lyrics, researching your favorite singer/songwriters to create the most amazing playlist ever, etc. This level is for everyone, whether they think of themselves as a musician or not. If you’re wondering whether something counts as musical, then it does.

2. Record something once a week. Could be an original, cover, you, someone else. You don’t have to keep it or share it, but you have to do it.

3. Perform live in front of other people at least once.

4. Write and record an original piece of music.

As a bonus, it would be nice for people to do a piece of winter holiday music to share. (It doesn’t have to be wintery or holiday-themed, if you’re inspired by something else.)
