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.

On today's HOT SEAT you'll hear from Lynn Kuo, violinist and educator creating an incredible business online.

It all started for Lynn at the start of the pandemic when she suddenly realized she needed to double down on her teaching while her performing job as Assistant Concertmaster in the National Ballet of Canada was on hiatus.

Now she's crushing it online on Instagram and YouTube, gathering thousands of new followers and creating online programs for violinists that combine her unique skills and mindset from her career as a violinist and as a karate expert!

We talk about:

- How to navigate social media without overwhelm

- The idea of creating in a space where it seems there are a lot of people doing the same thing... and why that's not important!

- Her process of becoming more visible and how she worked through the hesitancy of talking about violin on social media

And so much more!

On the show today you'll hear the inspiring story of Sharon Ruchman, a composer who really got things going and created more in her 60s than most people have in a lifetime.

Not only did she really get going in her later years, the really unique part of her story is about a family member whose story kept popping up for her until she decided to investigate. His name was Rudy, an up-and-coming violin soloist in his day whose life was tragically cut short, Sharon dug deeper and out if it came a newfound source of creative inspiration, as well as a memoire in his memory.
