Get paid what you deserve, stand out from the crowd and make an impact
If you are a professional musician, actor or dancer, I can help you to find the spark you may have lost, to regain a sense of purpose and fulfilment for what you do, to strengthen your innate confidence, to experience more success, recognition and value for your skills and artistry, and to leverage your income through your own creativity.
I have a vision to see the arts thriving, to help artists to receive the income, value and recognition they deserve by being bold, creating and innovating, and reinstating the importance and value of the arts in culture, economy and the wider society.
As a professional freelance musician I used to feel stressed, anxious, undervalued and underpaid. I was barely scraping a living, was in a lot of pain and working crazy hours just to pay the bills. Some of my colleagues around me were bitter, resentful and complaining, and I had serious questions about whether this was the profession for me. I had reached burnout after just 10 years. It was so far from the dream I imagined, and I became disillusioned and negative, and began to lose my passion for music.
Today I am in a very different place. I play music in a way which fulfils my passion and fits perfectly with who I am. I chose to refocus my time on playing the piano which fits me like a glove, over the double bass which wasn’t quite the right fit for me physically. I create my own performance opportunities and only play the repertoire I want to play. I no longer make my living through playing, but instead I am able to share my skills, knowledge and experience as a musician and a coach to help other musicians, actors and dancers to find their purpose, unlock their vision and create a career which fits with their true authenticity.
I run group programmes, one-to-one and group coaching and mentoring, retreats and workshops throughout the year to help you stand out, make more money, more impact and love what you do.
