Today & Tomorrow: 

Laying the Groundwork for a Successful Entrepreneurial Career in Music

Want a different kind of speaker for your next music teacher event?

I don’t talk about pedagogy or repertoire or student behavior issues. I talk about entrepreneurship and what it means to be a self-employed musician. The “business side” of teaching.

Whether it’s a stand-alone presentation, a break-out session as part of a larger conference, or a full-day workshop, we can create something amazing. Here are just a few topics I get excited about:

  • Can I Afford to Do This? Personal + Business Finance for Musicians
  • From Self-Employed to Business Owner: Growing a Studio Beyond Yourself
  • Music Studio Makeover: Personal Branding for Musicians

Drop me a line and we can talk about what would work best for your group!
