How many of us know a classical musician in crisis? Crippling self-doubt? Constant feelings of worthlessness? Upcoming generations of artists are faced with newer difficulties of not just finding their voice, but also crafting a career that is both sustainable and rewarding for them. Part of this involves careful planning and preparation in a modern tech-savvy world, which our traditional methods and courses of study often lag behind the curve in advancing fields, but the other part is allowing for an internal shift in what the image of success is. Michael Schneider directly tackles defining self-worth in the artist’s life and gives valuable take-aways to help. This is an important motivational and interactive discussion for all to take to heart.
Michael has presented lectures and workshops for the past 15 years for local and state musical organizations. Past presentations include “Franz Liszt: A Legacy – Dramatic Monologue” and “The Art of Practicing: A Guide to Problem-Solving”. Michael actively judges competitions around the US and is in demand as a master class teacher and lecturer.
