As part of Black History Month the Active Well Being Society have invited me to give a brief talk about my music career and to take questions from the audience this Thursday, 29th October, 4.35pm.
In an ideal world, we all would have managers taking care of introductions, contacts, networking, transactions, finances, protocols and so on, but in reality we need to know about all this stuff in order to build a career. Using my background and my experience, I have been spreading useful information to solve this issue for years, and now I have condensed all of it in a single website: http://www.successbeyondthescore.com
October 18th was established as World Menopause Day to raise awareness about the issues, experiences and challenges that this natural stage of life brings to a bit more than half the population of the world, yet is hardly spoken about and even considered a bit “taboo”. To contribute to this campaign, I wrote an article for the Musician’s Union to shed some light over life as a menopausal musician.
The album “Inspirational Love Songs”, in which I am featured, is nominated for a Maranatha award and the voting time is about to close! If you want to support me and the other musicians who took part in this great project directed by Gary Dixon, keep reading.
I am a summer person. I might like the change of colours during autumn and the snow in winter, but my mood definitely tries to go down as soon as days start to get shorter. Fortunately, there’s music to keep my spirits up, and today I bring you a little playlist of some instrumentals I really like, to help boost your energy as well.
I mentioned a couple weeks ago that the new radio station AffinityXtra gave a space to my podcast ‘Success Beyond The Score’. Well, the next batch of episodes airs tomorrow October 6th at 12:00! Tune in to learn everything you need to know about how to introduce yourself to potential clients and collaborators and how to get the best out of your business cards.
‘Time For My Music’ is the name of the community group for female musicians that I created alongside my Cafemnee team, wishing to provide a safe and welcoming environment to have conversations, share resources, improve ourselves and create music together.
