A gem for musicians!

So thankful to have found crushing classical! Tracy has honest conversations with people of different musical (and other) backgrounds to help musicians in this day and age have new perspective on their careers. Even things that seem obvious (but aren’t) are discussed, and Tracy and this podcast have given me valuable information to propel me forward in my musical career! Thank you!

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.
