1. What's new?

  • One post below is the introductory post for classical violinist, and new steemizen, @samnebyu. Please stop by and make him feel welcome.

  • As always, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to all of the content creators who are helping the #classical-music related posting genres to grow on steemit.

2. Roundup issue #12

Since our last roundup post, there have been 23 new articles posted in the categories that we monitor, and we're still working our way through our backlog from previous weeks. We have shared ten articles from those and other categories on the Steemit's Best Classical Music Facebook page. In coming days, we will be sharing some of the others as we continue working to get caught up.

Here are the articles that we shared on Facebook. One is still eligible for payout votes, so you know what to do!

As with our previous roundup posts, each of these authors will receive a proportional share of this roundup post's liquid author rewards (Steem and SBD, not SteemPower).

(note: Although we don't curently envision changing this practice, this reward distribution is subject to change without notice, at our sole discretion.)

3. What is this initiative?

To introduce the wider community to, we have launched the facebook page, Steemit's Best Classical Music, and we are monitoring a number of classical music related categories (and others) on steemit. We share the best posts that we find about classical music on our facebook page.

The point of this is to raise steemit awareness and visibility among people on facebook who share an interest in classical music. Additionally, to bring additional attention to the best articles and authors that we find, we also share periodic roundup articles here on steemit.

Sharing guidelines

Standards for sharing are subjective, but here are some guidelines to show the kinds of the things that we look for:

  • Original steem blockchain content
  • Attractive formatting
  • Well written grammar, punctuation, spelling, etc.
  • Roughly 500 to 2,000 words in length
  • English language text (Sorry, that's the only one we know.)
  • Supplementary video embeds from other platforms - such as youtube - are encouraged when accompanied by original steem block chain content.
  • Word length expectations will be relaxed for videos of original performances or compositions by the steemit author.
  • Sharing of articles by a single author will be limited to one or two per week.
  • To avoid spamming our facebook audience, sharing on facebook will generally be limited to one or two posts per day.

4. How you can help.

This initiative is intended to promote steemit, and to strengthen the classical music ecosystem here, so if you share these goals we would appreciate your support! Here are some ways you can help:

  • Contribute your own original content about classical music to the steem block chain.
  • If you have a facebook account, "Like" us here, and adjust the settings to see all of our posts.
  • Reshare articles from our facebook page with your facebook friends.
  • Resteem our roundup articles.
  • Use your upvotes to support the authors of articles that we find and share.
  • Let us know if there are any articles that we have overlooked.
  • Delegate steempower to the @classical-music account to give weight to our votes for authors of classical content.
  • Follow the @classical-music curation trail through
  • This is a user driven initiative with no whale support, and we're making it up as we go, so we enthusiastically welcome your ideas.

Thank you for your continued support and for taking the time to view this post!



Thank you so much for including my post on Hand Zimmer.

Woo Hoo Thanks for your consideration.
Anna will be tickled

You're welcome. She's a very impressive vocalist, so thank you for posting the video!

And thank you, also, for the resteem.

Absolutely my pleasure.

I am a music teacher and have a degree in classical violin as well as a masters in music education. I would be happy to help out with your work. If there is anything I can do please let me know.


I might take you up on this. Right now, I've got three main challenges:

  1. The number of articles is growing so fast that I can't keep track of it in my head any more. I am working on a way to keep better track of what has already been shared on facebook, and what still needs to be.
  2. I'm very limited in my knowledge of classical music, so I often wish for advice judging whether a style qualifies as "classical" and evaluating quality.
  3. Watching/listening to videos takes a lot of time. Especially since I often have to research to learn more about them in order to add "color" on the facebook posts.

If you'd be willing to help out with "2", and even "3" once in a while, I'd really appreciate it. If you are familiar with, we can use that platform to exchange private messages using our steemit account credentials.

We could also work out some sort of sharing agreement for the (meager ; -) rewards on any of the roundup posts that you contribute to.

Hey, yes I would be happy to help with 2 and 3. I have not used before, but I am a quick learn on that sort of stuff.

Let me know the next step?
