Crushing Classical

Crushing Classical podcast is an ongoing series of provocative interviews with musicians who are pioneering a new path in the classical music genre. I dig into musician's lives who have made an often risky move towards forging a unique path and creating a different kind of music career for themselves. This is particularly challenging in a field where the conventional approach is seeking employment in an orchestra. Join me and learn how others are redefining a thriving classical music career.

Crushing Classical: Redefining A Thriving Music Career

Dec 20, 2019

What you'll hear:

  • The benefit of being an *early adopter*
  • Audience research… how Nathan adjusted to suit what he discovered while growing his audience
  • What it looks like to be CHOOSY in your career - the fear most people feel and how it really works
  • The power of getting a coach for your business - something that’s *really* different from having a private teacher for your instrument
  • Zeroing on the exact student you’d like to teach - and how that impacts your business
  • The power of the group camaraderie and support when you join (or create) an online coaching program
  • How to deal with “competition” when you start doing work online
  • And so much more!
