MTNA Convention in Atlanta, GA

Robert making a brilliant point.  Probably.  Hopefully.

Robert making a brilliant point. Hopefully…

This year’s MTNA National Convention will be held in Atlanta, GA.

I’ll be presenting a Lecture/Discussion entitled: “Learning to Earning: FROM STUDENT TO PROFESSIONAL”, which will be held in the Roswell Room at the Westin Peachtree Plaza on this Saturday, March 28. We begin at 9:15 A.M.

Among the points I’ll be making is that we musicians need to elevate our own community from this funk in which we find ourselves, the self-pity, the self-deprecation. The so-called “Starving Artist” mentality has got to go. From performers to teachers, we are business-people, and we need to start acting like it.

And best wishes to those pianists participating in the National Piano Duo Competition! I see you have made it this far, which is very far indeed. I and my fellow judges are eager to experience your music-making on this Sunday.

Looking forward to meeting many of you.
