Packaging: “As a tribute to the days when “album” was king (still is!), the CD album comes in a classic record album style sleeve with original art and individual printing.

This album project is 100% self-financed by a single person with years of work leading to its release. The CD costs have been kept in line with MP3 prices so you can own and enjoy the actual CD the way it was created and intended for around the same price of downloading -and it ships anywhere in the world for free. For either choice, ALL support is greatly appreciated = THANK YOU!” [GW]

Preview track:
“MusicSpeak ‘sound of reason’ (album 1 preview track)” has been posted. ~30 seconds of clips from each song on the new album, released late 2012 on the Musicspeak Inc. record label.

Musicspeak® Education Program offers a long term experience for students with new programs being added all the time. Among those additions have been the multiple Workshop Programs, and along with the long standing Private Lesson Program, are exclusive to Musicspeak®.

Click here for Musicspeak Education Program on Facebook including Mission Statement, Biography, contact and more!

Musicspeak® Private Lesson Program:
With the goal of mixing ingredients into a musical style that is both original and progressive, this program propels students as far as they want to go. One on one instruction is the most efficient way to focus on problem areas, and to highlight strengths. With exclusive curriculum, this program is challenging and rewarding, especially for long term students. Instruments include
drums, guitarbasspercussionsong writing and composion, production;
Conducted by
Gary Williams. Private lessons are usually weekly, but multiple days, bi-weekly, even a one-off appointment or other scheduling can be arranged as well!

Musicspeak® Session Workshop:
Involving on the spot training for a studio situation, the student will participate in the direction of some pre-written song structures, dynamics, and performance, etc. This workshop is one on one, but in some cases additional musicians, students, and/or parents may be involved (especially for multiple sessions). My rates are not only affordable, the CD’s and Musicspeak MP3 Download make great gifts for family and friends! This workshop is available for anyone, not just current students.

Musicspeak® Band Workshop:
This exclusive workshop provides an opportunity for musicians to have an outside observer work directly with bands to coach, encourage, and outline strengths and weaknesses of the group. Improved productivity, efficiency, and overall focus are the goal with this program. A band that can communicate has a much better chance at progress, and with Musicspeak Education Program, students are offered in-depth assistance.

Musicspeak® Workshop Program:
During a standard 8 week run, the Musicspeak Workshop Program connects students and starts beginners with solid, accurate information on playing their instrument! This workshop usually takes place at the school, or a hosts home (for example) adding this program. There are guitar (bass guitar included) and drum workshops for new players, and an additional 8 week workshop for those with experience. Schools, home schoolers, groups, or individuals interested in adding this exclusive Musicspeak workshop to their music program, or as an after school program, contact@musicspeak.net

“Gary Williams’ inventive drumming is the highlight! He plasters his beats with staccato double kick flurries and aggressive hand/foot combos that turn every song into a rhythmic tour de force” (From Modern Drummer print magazine)

“MusicSpeak is the project of versatile multi-instrumentalist and music educator Gary Williams. Clearly, from a spin or two, Williams precision and skillfulness in song composition and musicianship is self-evident.” (From Classic Rock Society print magazine)
