This is EmilioTV
I have had some performance videos up on YouTube for some time, like everybody.
Now, something new. I'm launching a weekly series called EmilioTV.
It might end up being more teaching, more performing, or something else entirely. Some people have to make everything perfect before they put anything out into the world. I'm not that kind of guy. I just dive in, get my hands dirty, and learn as I go.
How does that benefit you? You get to shape the series. Tell me what you want to learn about or see more of and I'm going to give it to you. Tell me through, tweets, emails, comments, social media, or this website .
Given that I worked as a videographer to support myself before I found enough performance work, having a more active presence on YouTube is something I'm a little embarrassed to be doing now. I've had the skills for a long time. It's one of those things I probably should have taken more seriously 5 or 6 years ago.
Better late than never. Waiting has its benefits too. I've been busy figuring out so much about music making and making a living that I have a lot to say these days.
Here is video numero uno. Topics may be a little all over the place at first and that is intentional—I want to see what you all want the most.
Like my book, this channel is another way to serve people. I can do lots of things well, but giving people what they value most is my top priority. Helping others and pushing my own creativity in the process? If that isn't a win-win, I don't know what is.
Check out the video above, don't forget to subscribe to the channel (link in the video) and get on my email list. I'm going to be doing a "Best Of" email every Monday and a new YouTube video every Tuesday. Some other goodies are coming shortly, but I have to keep a lid on all that for now.
Say hello in the mean time!

If you liked this video, you're going to dig my book Make It. It breaks down the strategies and techniques a young musician needs to find work and turn their musical abilities into an income.
