Classical Musicians in Crisis: Restoring Your Self-Worth

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 of 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.

Lectures/Workshops

The Art of Practicing

Problem solving at the keyboard is an exploratory art. The possibility of interpretation and spontaneity is infinite, which in and of itself offers great satisfaction and why live performances will always be superior to recordings. But, in our experience, this is also why you can fumble around forever and never achieve success. Therefore, this process, the Art of Practicing, can and must be improved. In this workshop, Michael Schneider leads you through many techniques and tips which help you hone and focus your practice sessions, while sharing often funny experiences he has had along the way. There are hilarious take-aways like his Chart of Frequent Troubleshooting Questions and list of the Common Mistakes of Practicing, along with the helpful Indispensable Tools for Coordination Issues.

Ideal For: Aspiring young musicians, current professionals and teachers, and general audience
