Truly Inspiring! Especially for Young Musicians!

I discovered Crushing Classical recently and I only wish I had found it sooner! As a high school senior, it has transformed the way I view pursuing a music major and introduced me to so many new ideas. This has been an eye opening podcast for me. Crushing Classical is for everyone, but if you’re a young musician you should definitely to listen to this!

What they didn’t tell you in music school

These episodes should be required listening for every conservatory. The interviews are a gold mine of valuable insight from people who are breaking the mold in classical music. A real contrast from the boring profiles you read in most magazines about why the latest superstar is playing this concerto or singing that role. If you are a musician who is searching for a more meaningful way to engage with your art and your audience, this podcast will help you do that by exploring the tough questions. A legit resource tool for people who use it that way. I plan to revisit some of the eps more than once.

All musicians need CC!

I started listening to this podcast a year ago. I can honestly say that it has been the most inspiring thing I've experienced this year! It's like Tracy knows what I'm thinking and going through every time I listen. After listening, I feel refreshed, understood, and ready to take on the world! If you need inspiration or encouragement navigating a career in classical music, you MUST listen!
