We Need a Theme Song [Podcast Ep.31]

September 27, 2019 Peter Baron and Hans Mundahl

If you are a regular podcast listener you know that we have intro music before every episode and the same music plays on transitions and at the end of the show. Well, we’re a little tired of the music and you can help!

We’re putting out a call for new music from our schools. You can participate by working with your music students and teachers to create an original composition that represents the values of the podcast and of EMA: positivity, professionalism, and value (along with a little bit of heart and soul).

Your composition should meet the following criteria:

  • 10-20 seconds long

  • All compositions must be wholly original

  • The school will give permission to EMA to use the music on the podcast

  • Music must be an original composition and can’t be a remix of other artists

  • Live recording of an original composition is ideal

  • Original composition performed by midi instruments or GarageBand loops is also okay

  • Composition should be upbeat and have a positive vibe

  • Music without lyrics is preferred

  • But if your lyrics are about the EMA podcast that would be pretty amazing

We’d love to feature the music of your talented students on the podcast - and we’d even like to have you on the show to talk about the music you created for us!

To participate upload your file to Google Drive or Dropbox and share the file with hmundahl@enrollment.org

We look forward to hearing what you create!
