Learn survival skills from successful performers in the industry

Listen to this free podcast series

Christine Davis’ No-Nonsense Podcasts consists of a four-part series that aims to explore crucial practical knowledge as well as strategies to better prepare music students for life after college. Some topics that will be covered include freelancing challenges, creating and maintaining a functioning studio, budgeting unpredictable and inconsistent paychecks, dealing with student loans and other debts, working with difficult people, and handling rejection. Five professional musicians will speak with care, candor, and honesty about their careers and the paths they took to get there. The level of transparency that these musicians will bring to the table to students and young professionals is nothing short of remarkable and is greatly lacking in the accepted collegiate curriculum today. This series hopes to bring these stressful, and very real topics into the light and tackle the issues head on, No-Nonsense style.
