This Summer, Build Your Career with the Savvy Musician

Though it may be hard to believe, with snow still melting on many of our sidewalks, summer is rapidly approaching.  This season—when school is out and many gigging scenes slow—is an ideal time to reflect on your career trajectory and strategically plan the path forward.  If you’re so inclined, I’d love to help you plot that journey at one of the following events.




July 6-18, Maccagno, Italian Alps

This two week festival, for performers and composers, is unlike any other.  Student and faculty participants collaborate closely on new music creation and performance.  Plus it’s in Italy!  I’ll be there offering a 5-day workshop focusing on various career issues, in addition to serving as a composer and instructor.


July 10-20 (tour July 20-24), Emmitsburg, MD

This camp, for violinists, violists, cellists, and pianists, specializes in chamber music.  Additionally, students participate in a series of interdisciplinary arts experiences, including theatre and movement.   My 3-day residency will focus both on career skills and music improvisation (no prior experience necessary!).


June 3-5, Bloomington, IL

If you’re passionate about the arts and have an idea for a business, or are already running a business you wish could become more successful, enroll in Boost Camp!  Boost Camp is an intensive 3-day-weekend course, that (re)introduces you to the process of starting a business in the arts and/or creative sectors. I’ll be one of the lead instructors/mentors for this session. My colleagues and I will outline the fundamentals of creative business development and help you understand the relationship between intelligent planning and ultimate success in an interactive, experiential learning environment. 


June 15-18, Boston, MA

If you’re an early music buff, this conference is a great way to get inspired, network, and grow your knowledge.  On June 15, I’ll be offering a 3-hour session (topic to be determined) in addition to another session for Festival Ensemble participants. 


July 27-30, Lombard, IL

Specifically addressing the needs of private piano teachers, this conference offers workshops on technology, wellness, pedagogy, and more.  My session will unveil an economic blueprint for music teachers to maximize income.


August 7-14, Pittsburgh, PA

The emphasis of this weeklong camp is music-making by day and career-making by night.  Open to players of all instruments.  I just learned that one of the world’s great violinists, Sarah Chang, will be on board this summer!  Returning for the third year, I’ll serve as one of several presenters focusing on entrepreneurship and career success.
