The main difference between a voice teacher and a vocal coach is what they focus on.

There is a difference between a singing lesson and a vocal coaching session. The vocal teacher helps you sing a note, while a vocal coach helps you become the note.

A voice teacher helps improve your singing technique and overall voice health. They work on things like hitting the right notes, expanding your vocal range, controlling your voice, and whether you’re singing from your head or chest.

On the other hand, a vocal coach focuses on making your songs sound great. They help with stage presence, portrayal of emotion, putting on a good show, learning new songs, and handling live performances.

Generally, vocal coaches work with more experienced singers and artists, while voice teachers work with people at all skill levels.

The Road To Success In The Music Business,” a new ebook released on Amazon, is worth reading. Written by Dean Cramer, it covers the steps to have a successful career in music. However, these steps could be applied to other careers outside of music. Branding and image are everything, as well as telling a story that people connect to. I know what you’re thinking – does the world need another music book? What I like about this book is that it’s simple and short. It’s like a handbook. Whether you’re new or more seasoned, it’s worth having.

Dean Cramer said, “I didn’t mean to create anything extraordinary. This is only the beginning of my writing journey. Even though I have a lot to express, I have been working in music for what feels like an eternity, so I know enough about it.”

“The Road to Success in the Music Business” is a comprehensive guide that takes aspiring musicians through the key steps of establishing a successful career. Each chapter addresses critical aspects of the music industry, from finding a unique sound and building a brand to crafting an image and mastering songwriting and production. The book covers practical elements such as releasing music, networking, and handling the business side, along with essential strategies for marketing, going viral, and overcoming challenges. With insights into the dynamic music landscape, the guide concludes by encouraging artists to look ahead in their musical journey.

Spotify shares surged over 7% on Monday following the announcement that the music streaming giant will be reducing its workforce by 17%. In an email to staff, CEO Daniel Ek explained the move, stating, “We are taking substantial action to rightsize our costs.” Ek acknowledged that Spotify had overexpanded its team during 2020 and 2021 when capital was abundant.

This round of layoffs, approximately 1,500 jobs, reflects Spotify’s effort to adjust to a growth slowdown. Although Spotify reported a profit of 65 million euros ($70.7 million) in the third quarter, Ek highlighted the need for the company to address economic challenges and the rising cost of capital.

Spotify announces a layoff of 17% of its workforce in its effort for profitability following Taylor’s Swift $100 million payout from song streams.

In an internal memo posted on Spotify’s website, Ek expressed the company’s commitment to becoming the world’s leading audio company while ensuring consistent profitability and growth. The layoffs come despite Spotify’s strategic moves, including subscription plan price increases and expansion into podcasts and audiobooks.

This recent workforce reduction follows previous cuts earlier in the year, with Spotify trimming 6% of its workforce in January (around 600 employees) and an additional 2% in June (approximately 200 roles). Despite these adjustments, Spotify’s shares have more than doubled in value throughout the year. Wells Fargo analysts suggest that these layoffs signal Spotify’s focus on achieving profitability targets rather than merely reacting to economic challenges, estimating a potential nearly 2% reduction in operating expenses by 2024.


A female boxer withdrew from a Canadian tournament, expressing safety concerns after learning her opponent was transgender. Dr. Katia Bissonnette withdrew an hour before facing Mya Walmsley in the 2023 Provincial Golden Glove Championship in Quebec. Walmsley was declared the winner by default as a replacement couldn’t be found. Bissonnette advocates for separate categories based on biological sex and cited a study on punching strength differences. Walmsley criticized the public outing and expressed concerns about the potential impact on transgender athletes in women’s categories. Boxing Canada recommends not disclosing a trans fighter’s identity if they transitioned before puberty. She cited a study by the University of Utah which found that men can punch 163 per cent harder than women.
