    Trust, Connection, and Never-ending Growth ft. YAS

    Ep. 80 – YAS is here. She is a BEAST. From playing strings on some of your favorite tracks, to carving her own niche as a vocalist – she is a leading example in grit and drive. But, there is more to YAS than the grind. What actually matters? We talk about how to find meaning in the hustle, make real connection with an audience, and what it takes to forge your own path.

The Podcast All Classical Musicians Need

This podcast is a conversation about life in the classical world in beyond that all musicians, especially young musicians, NEED to listen to. It's such an open and honest dialogue about topics that have never been talked about before but are so imperrative!
