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

Feb 22, 2024

On the faculty at Princeton for over 45 years, Michael Pratt has built one of the premiere music performance programs in American liberal arts universities. He has conducted instrumental works and opera from five centuries in Princeton and in international halls. He was made a Honorary Member of the Royal College of Music, London by King Charles III and was awarded the President's Award for Distinguished Teaching by Princeton President Christopher Eisgruber.

He's recently released a historical fiction romance, The Copyists. 

And our conversation about it is LOVELY.

John Jeter has been music director and conductor of the Fort Smith Symphony since 1997. He is the recipient of the Governor’s Award for “Individual Artist of the State of Arkansas”, the Helen M. Thompson Award presented by the League of American Orchestras, and the Mayor’s Achievement Award for services to the City of Fort Smith.

Jeter has guest conducted numerous orchestras in the US and Europe. His music education programs for schools reach up to 10,000 students annually. He is also involved in a growing number of music and wellness projects, and has a long history as a media guest and host.

He’s recently released a new album on Naxos, featuring the music of Louis Wayne Ballard, the first Native American concert composer.  His music is wonderful and his life and career make for a fascinating story.  

You can listen to the music at the link above. Our conversation touched on numerous topics including diversity in programming, audience development, the difficulties and rewards of rediscovering a composer, and why we all need to be proactive in this!

Ian Campbell is a composer, pianist, teacher and partimenti expert and teacher.  Partimenti is one of the most efficient tools ever developed for teaching music creatively, but was discarded and has almost been lost. Ian first encountered partimenti studying in Paris, France with disciples of Nadia Boulanger and has been learning, practicing, and teaching partimenti for more than 10 years. 

WHY didn't I know anything about this? I'm DELIGHTED to have had this conversation. I feel smarter already...

Cody Weisbach is a Boulder, CO based Doctor of Physical Therapy with an interest in the prevention and treatment of playing related musculoskeletal disorders in musicians.

He earned his Doctor of Physical Therapy from Simmons College in 2007 and has since gone on to become Board-Certified Clinical Specialist in Orthopaedic Physical Therapy in 2009 and a Fellow of the American Association of Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapists in 2010.

Professionally, Cody works for a hospital based outpatient clinic in Longmont, CO. He is a member of the Performing Arts Medical Association, the American Physical Therapy Association Performing Arts Special Interest Group, an advisor on the Performance Healthcare Committee of the National Flute Association, and the founder of Musician’s Maintenance, a website dedicated to connecting musicians with quality, science-based injury prevention and performance health information. 

While in Massachusetts he frequently worked with students from the Berklee College of Music. He is also the past Chair of the APTA of Massachusetts Manual Therapy Special Interest Group, where he helped physical therapists from around the state improve their manual therapy skills. He has taught continuing education courses and has held adjunct and affiliate faculty positions in several doctoral level physical therapy programs in the Boston area. He has published in peer reviewed PT journals, co-authored a textbook and presented nationally on topics related to evidence based physical therapy.

Following a childhood in Boulder, Cody moved to Boston for grad school where he met his amazing wife Cara and together they started their family. It took him 12 years, but he finally convinced Cara to move back to Boulder where they now live with their two kids and spend their time hiking, mountain biking, climbing, playing at playgrounds, playing a little music and enjoying the Colorado outdoors.

 

I loved this conversation. Why do we not have this information, as performing musicians? I was taught that if I hurt, I should rest. Period. Oh, and I was told to warm up before I play, which … whatever. I love warmups, I talk about them all the time, but blowing air through my instrument and playing scales is not an injury prevention tactic. I absolutely signed right up for Cody’s video series and I’m looking forward to whatever his upsell is on the back end. 

If you, like me, would be better off if you were taking better care of your body? This is the episode for you. 

Check out Cody's website and his excellent free email series!

Dr. Tonya Lawson is a musician, blogger, and SEO specialist whose mission is to empower musicians and other creatives to build out passive income streams so they have the financial freedom to live the life they want to live. 

She works part time at Middle Tennessee State University, runs a private music studio of 50+ students, has 3 blogs, and through her membership, helps musicians get their websites found on google so they can book more gigs, get more students, and earn passive income along the way!

We talked about 

1. Why musicians should be diversifying their income and how to set up passive income streams without sacrificing your music career. 

2. How to use a blog to bring new people to your website (without having to constantly promote it on social media).

3. How to add additional monetization to your private studio with affiliate income.

And this was SOO deliciously geeky for me. I loved our conversation and I know you will too!

Tim Corpus is an internationally performed composer, sound designer, and arts manager who calls Chicago home. Highlights include performances at Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, and features on CNN Money, BBC Radio3, and 98.7 WFMT among others. His album, “MMXX”, was shortlisted for the 2022 Grammy awards and hailed as “a striking disc” by critic Robert Hugill. 

Also a composer for film and games, his music has received awards from festivals around the country. Beyond his own compositions, Tim is an active orchestrator and arranger having worked with Andrea Bocelli, Placido Domingo, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Milwaukee Symphony, Third Coast Percussion, and others.

His diverse career in the arts has also included leading arts organizations as an Executive Director and board member, and teaching at Loyola University Chicago and Chicago City Colleges. 

I loved talking portfolio careers with Tim - he’s right down in the weeds of how you build a thriving life as a creator, a performer, an arts manager - how you take care of yourself both inside and out, and how you get things done when there are a million things pulling at you.

I know you will love this conversation! 

Find Tim at his website or on instagram @timcorpus!
