"The fact is, you will teach." from the Foreword by Stephen Clapp, Dean Emeritus, The Julliard School. Whether serving on the faculty at a university, maintaining a class of private students, or fulfilling an invitation as guest artist in a master class series, virtually all musicians will teach during their careers. From the Stage to the Studio speaks directly to the performing musician, highlighting the significant advantages of becoming distinguished both as a performer and a pedagogue. Drawing on over sixty years of combined experience, authors Cornelia Watkins and Laurie Scott provide the guidance and information necessary for any musician to translate his or her individual approach into productive and rewarding teacher-student interactions. Premised on the synergistic relationship between teaching and performing, this book provides a structure for clarifying the essential elements of musical artistry, and connects them to such tangible situations as setting up a studio, teaching a master class, interviewing for a job, judging competitions, and recruiting students. From the Stage to the Studio serves as an essential resource for university studio faculty, music pedagogy teachers, college music majors, and professionals looking to add effective teaching to their artistic repertoire.

"Making it" in the music world can seem like a magical, unpredictable outcome granted only to the chosen few. A solid musical education focuses on learning repertoire, gaining mastery of technique, interpretation, memorization, musicality and quality of performance as well as winning auditions and competitions. Yet one's personal development and a true sense of self can get lost along the way. We are trained to believe that if we just practice enough, go to the right school, win the competitions and get the big gig, THEN we'll finally "make it" and everything will be happily ever after. Except it usually doesn't work out that way. In over a decade of working with musicians as a psychotherapist and now career coach, I've seen so many unhappy and unfulfilled musicians. Cases have ranged from people who feel like they are "bowing for dollars" (meaning they have a nice orchestra job but actually dread going to work) while others feel disrespected and undervalued because of not getting a promotion in a music school or conservatory. Some look so successful on paper yet are unable to get out of the red financially or deal with interpersonal problems with a business partner, colleague or board of directors. And yet some are lost in the audition circuit, year after year after year, freelancing and teaching along the way as they get more and more burnt out. It goes on and on. This book dissolves the myths about success in music and helps you not only define what success means to you but helps you create a solid action plan to be successful in all areas of your life. Throughout this book Dana will guide you down a path of self-exploration and personal discovery to help you answer questions such as: How do I define success? What do I truly love to do? How can I get paid what I am worth? What do I want to express? What do I want to share with the world? How do I want to make a difference? Who inspires me, models the success I want and how can I learn from them? How do I take failure and disappointment and turn it into growth and success? By the end of this book, you will know yourself better, have a clear idea of what you authentically want and an inspired action plan to create the success and fulfillment you dream of.

إذا وجِدَ كتاب يستحق أن يقرأه المراهقون وأولياء الأمور (وأي شخص آخر)، فهو هذا الكتاب - صحيفة دنفر بوست. ميلودي، 11 عامًا، تملك ذاكرة مرآتية، ورأسها مثل آلة تصوير سينمائية تسجل طوال الوقت، ولكن لا يوجد فيها زر للحذف؛ كانت أذكى طفلة في مدرستها، ولكن لم يكن أي إنسان يعرف ذلك؛ فقد اعتقد معظم الناس، ومنهم المعلمون والأطباء، أنها غير قادرة على التعلُّم، وكانت أيام المدرسة - حتى وقت قريب - تمر وهي تستمع باستمرار إلى دروس أحرف الهجاء لمستوى الروضة مرة تلو الأخرى؛ تمنَّت لو أنها تستطيع الصراخ... لو أنها تستطيع إخبار من حولها كيف تفكر، وماذا تعرف؛ لكنها لا تستطيع؛ لأنها لا تقدر على الكلام، ولا تستطيع المشي ولا الكتابة. كانت أشياء كثيرة حبيسة في رأسها ولا تستطيع التعبير عنها، وهذا ما كان يسبب لها الجنون - إلى أن اكتشفت شيئًا جعلها تتكلم لأول مرة في حياتها؛ أخيرًا، أصبح لها صوت، لكن لا يوجد أحد ممن حولها يريد سماعه! العبيكان 2017
