Crushing Classical

Crushing Classical is a series of interviews with classical musicians who are forging unique paths with their talent, creating their own artistic fulfillment and financial comfort, and finding ways to thrive. I celebrate these brave people who are taking routes outside of traditional orchestral or academic employment! As always, I invite you to listen for your own sparks and breadcrumbs, and use these interviews to find the possibilities that exist in your own life.

The Happiest Musician: Creating A Career You Love With All The Things You Love Doing

Sep 28, 2023

I want to let you know that I have a new program starting this October.  The Happiest Musician Accelerator is a three month group program for musicians who want to have an impact in the world. 

It’s to encourage musicians to step outside the narrowest version of their career, to expand the box, and to create for themselves the life they want to live from a place of alignment and love.. It’s to give them the practical tools to start new income streams or launch programs. And it’s to give them the confidence to try! 

Check it out at the link above, and reach out to me if you have any questions. I’d love to chat with you!

 

Today on the podcast: Kate Kayaian is a bestselling author and a career & mindset coach for artists and creatives. She runs her signature group program, The Creatives Leadership Academy and maintains a small roster of 1:1 clients.  Kate started the blog, Tales From The Lane in 2016 to be a career and lifestyle-focused resource geared towards creative entrepreneurs, and is currently working on her first full-length book. 

A former professional cellist, she attended the prestigious New England Conservatory of Music and went on to have a thriving career–performing with several Grammy Award-winning groups and touring as a solo and chamber musician. When the pandemic hit in early 2020, she pivoted to the online space, and she’s never looked back. 

She lives on the beautiful island of Bermuda with her husband and rescue pup and spends her days working with clients, writing, gardening, and serving on several boards. She believes that everyone has the right to live exactly the kind of life they have always dreamed of living.

Kate and I have been friends for a long time and I’m an enormous fangirl - everything she does is smart, and loving, and bold, and aligned. It was great to hear the inside scoop on how she’s been creating these huge shifts in her own life and how she’s helping her clients to do the same.

Check out Kate and the Creatives Leadership Academy at her website, follow her on Instagram @KKayaian, read her excellent blog, or pick up her FREE GUIDE to the Ten Habits of Successful Artists!

I had a little windfall last week - caused by releasing a tiny oboe product that I'd been developing for over 5 months. 

And it made me think about money and about income streams...

And about helping others. 

For pre-launch information about my upcoming program, The Happiest Musician Accelerator, email me or book a call!

Jonathan Kravtchenko is an exciting young composer from Canada. He is currently getting ready for the premiere of his new opera-nova, "Tango for Two", which premieres in Toronto on October 21st.

It's difficult to get STARTED in a music career, and in my conversation with Jonathan we looked at the landscape for recent graduates.  COVID was awful for everyone, but my husband and I were in a relatively privileged place, with established portfolio careers to fall back on.  The generation that came of age during this pandemic has had a harder time!  

We talked about the needs of new audiences, the trajectories of young musicians, and his upcoming self-produced opera premiere, Tango for Two.

You can follow Jonathan at his website, Facebook, and YouTube.

This Happiest Musician Minisode builds off my last minisode, on getting clarity on the money part of your business, and assumes that you DO have some clarity around how much money you need to make and where you want it to be coming from.  You might want to hop back to that one first if you haven't heard it yet! 

Freelancing comes with its own set of math. Let's think about what questions you should be asking yourself as you accept or decline gigs!
