More Episodes

My guest today is violinist, teacher and performance coach, Dr. Renée-Paule Gauthier.

This was such an awesome episode, we got into so many topics, like, why it’s SO important to invest in yourself and that it’s totally OK to ask for help on your projects, your career, or anything that you’re working on.

We talk about learning how to shift your focus to things you actually have some control over, and how Renee was so dedicated to learning about becoming a better musician and teacher, she went and got a DMA in mindful practice.

By the way she did that while raising two kids, and holding down a busy free-lance career in Chicago, so all of you music students get ready to take some notes on how to work a google calendar and become a more efficient learner.

Towards the end of our interview you might hear Renee’s kids calling out in the background while they enjoy some video games, but I didn’t want to edit it out because it really is just the times we are living in right now with trying to work from home with kids during a pandemic, so you are NOT alone musician entrepreneur parents! We feel you.

Alright, get yourself a warm winter coat, because we’re heading to Chicago for this episode.
