Vlog #26 The three things you need to start your career i

No one can predict what your career will be. But if you approach it as a creative work – just as you would if it were a piece of music – you’ll make something that works for you and is innovative. My final piece of advice: aim for a situation in which every day not only plays to your strengths, but also is different in challenging ways that take you out of your comfort zone.

Vlog #25 To make a living, get a life

You’re naturally focused on starting a career in music. Have a life outside music, develop secondary interests, and encounter new ideas. Work that expresses who you are comes out of the unique experiences that you cultivate for yourself, and those experiences are richest when they are wide-ranging.
