    023 Mini Episode: How to Manage your TIME

    WOW! This season has gone by SO FAST! We are so grateful to all of these wonderful guests who have joined us this season. Here at The Musician's Toolbox, we have enjoyed hearing about comparisons, maintaining good mental standing, self-transformation, music production, composing, teaching online, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Just like last season, for the month of March we will be celebrating this season by showcasing never-before-seen answers to popular questions. In this rapid fire mini episode we will be learning all about TIME MANAGEMENT. It is almost spring, so everyone is itching to clean, and get everything ready for summer. So by studying time management, we can examine what we do during our day, and see what we can take out or put in. We hope you gain new insights, and let us know what you learn!!!

    022 Rachel Galvin: Movement & Exercise, Feldenkrais, and Self-Awareness

    022 Rachel Galvin: Movement & Exercise, Feldenkrais, and Self-Awareness

    Most recently we sat down with Dr. Rachel Galvin to talk about how to approach music making from a physically more healthy place. As a Feldenkrais practitioner and personal trainer, Dr. Galvin (also a violist) had some incredible insight into pain free playing. If you’re looking for a new way to approach practicing or have dealt with/are dealing with injuries, you will find this episode particularly useful and educative.

    021 Xochitl Tafoya: El Sistema, Saving the Music Industry, and Reframing Music Education

    021 Xochitl Tafoya: El Sistema, Saving the Music Industry, and Reframing Music Education

    Have you ever heard of El Sistema?  What about the Suzuki Method?  If you have heard of the latter, but not El Sistema, then you definitely need to check out this episode.  There is a music education movement called El Sistema that came out of Venezuela.  It has changed the look of classical music in many ways including the typical ethnicities you see performing classical music, as well as the way that we perform and consume classical music.  Xochitl Tafoya, a music educator based in Northern California was an El Sistema fellow which means she went to Venezuela and learned from the founder of El Sistema as well as studying the methodology of El Sistema through New England Conservatory.  Go listen to her unique experiences both with El Sistema as well as in the classical music world.

    020 Cindy Bezas: Self-Care RESET, Depression and Suicide, and Self-Transformation

    020 Cindy Bezas: Self-Care RESET, Depression and Suicide, and Self-Transformation

    Welcome back to yet another episode of The Musician's Toolbox! In this week's episode, we feature another conversation about mental health, however, Cindy Bezas has a very different point of view of the music industry than some of our past guests, so we think you will thoroughly enjoy this conversation. Cindy Bezas has earned two degrees, a bachelors from BYU emphasizing leadership communication, as well as a Masters of Science from the University of Idaho where she studied the power of self-transformation. Bezas is also a very powerful communicator: she has spoken across the nation for executives, groups, and individuals on self transformation, as well as emotional and mental resilience. Lastly, Cindy is a fellow podcaster and is the host of internationally top-ranked podcasts including, Concussion: There Is Hope; and The Business Nightingale Project. Both of which are intended to bring hope and reduce suicide. As you can see, Cindy Bezas has a very new perspective that we quite haven't had yet on the podcast yet, so we hope you enjoy, and let us know what you think!

    019 Ben Britton: Composing and Authoring, SMART Practice, and the EASTMAN How-Tos

    Hello Fellow Musicians!! How are you doing? (is anyone even reading this?) In today's episode, we talk with Dr. Ben Britton. If you do not know who he is, he is doing lots of amazing work, and here is a portion of the things he has done... he has earned a Master's degree in saxophone jazz performance at the Manhattan School of Music and Doctorate in jazz studies at Eastman; he has produced many albums and is an avid composer; and, he currently teaches jazz and woodwinds at the College of Southern Idaho. Oh AND, among other things, he has written a fictional novel, Gravity Leak, which is in the publishing stages, with an accompanying album of self-composed music, which, is a main topic of our discussion today. We also talked about SMART practice and some of the behind the senses of Eastman. Angela and I both enjoyed this convo, and we think you will to! Let us know what you think!!

    018 Mike McClellan: Music Production, Comparison Coping Tools, and Home Studio Setup

    018 Mike McClellan: Music Production, Comparison Coping Tools, and Home Studio Setup

    Have you ever felt confused about music production? Between audio interfaces, mics and mic placement, cables, logic, pro tools, recording, and setup, it can be VERY confusing. We hope to resolve all or most of your music production questions in our interview with Mike McClellan. He walks through the basics of music production, beginner home studio setups, and also coping tools when we compare ourselves to others. Mike has quite the resume: he has studied across the planet with lots of seasoned professionals, and his music has been played in commercials from corporations including Amazon, the NFL, and the U.S. Olympics. Michael was so much fun to talk with, and we hope you enjoy this episode!
