2/26: Incorporating Feedback

Every time we perform, share a new piece, or even simply live our lives, we open the doors to critique. How can we suss out helpful advice from unhelpful advice? What are some of the best ways to incorporate (or ignore) criticism? Hosted by Chrysanthe Tan.

2/19: House Concerts

There’s no better way to perform and connect with your own personal music community than intimate house concerts. We will discuss ideas for producing, promoting, and performing house concerts. Hosted by Arthur Breur.

2/12: Audience Development in the Digital Space

Can we make meaningful connections with listeners entirely in the digital space? Can musicians learn meaningfully from each other about audience development strategies online? What barriers stand in the way? What tools are available? Hosted by Shaya Lyon.

2/5: The Rehearsal Process: Techniques, Challenges, and the Culture of Collaboration

How we interact, structure our time, problem-solve, and the degree to which we allow ourselves to be vulnerable with one another can determine not only the outcome of our performances, but also our personal experience of music-making and even the trajectory of our careers. Hosted by Ann Moss.
