In the current climate of uncertainty, individual musicians and music educators are having to rethink the way they work, in some cases in an online environment, and consider how their ‘business’ may function beyond the pandemic when live activities resume.

You start running to fix whatever happened, and then turn to realize you have not made any post in a week. Sounds familiar? Well, in this episode, Millicent shares her own experience to help you realize such a thing is not the end of the world or your career.
