Last Friday I presented a workshop to one of our local music teachers associations on the topic of “New-to-us Tech Ideas.” I shared about some of the recent finds I’ve come across, many of which I’ve shared here previously. However, I realized that I never did a post on an awesome resource I came across this past spring. A friend and I were working on my CD, Journey to Self Publishing: 12 steps to successfully publish your book, and he told me about Kunaki.
If you’ve ever wanted to help your students produce a CD that looks professional and even comes with professional packaging, look no further! The entire system is completely automated, so you are on your own in terms of getting everything recorded, designed, uploaded, and ordered. But if you spend some time reading over the extensive question and answer pages on the site, you’ll be just fine.
I’ve used the system twice now, and both times I’ve been incredibly pleased with the finished results. As part of our studio theme this year, my students have the option to produce a CD, so I’m excited to see if any of them decide to give it a try. Once you’ve produced and designed everything according to the specifications, just place an order. For quantities of 10 or less, you’ll pay just $1 plus shipping. The only other costs would be if you hire a graphic designer to do the cover and insert design (as I did with my Journey to Self Publishing CD), but I suspect that most students would have fun designing their own covers!
Anyway…tons of fun! If you give it a try, you’ll have to let me know. 🙂
