TEM144: Evolving career goals and finding your personal creative rhythm - A conversation with composer Dale Trumbore

Dale Trumbore is a Los Angeles-based composer, author and teacher.

What You'll Learn:

  • The very narrow definition of success Dale had for herself (with a self-imposed age limit!) and why she adapted that definition over time
  • How she moved to LA but deviated from her original plan of becoming a film music composer
  • Why creating your ideal community doesn't necessarily involve where you live any more because you can create that community online if you look in the right places
  • Why the uneven income of an entrepreneur meant she had to get good with managing her money at an early age
  • The time of day Dale is most productive and why she advocates for everyone to find their own personal creative rhythm
  • How she analyzes her past career goals in order to inform her new ones
  • Tips to make a great website (which Dale feels quite strongly about!)
  • How to craft a personal and relevant email when asking someone for something
  • The importance of developing your own creative process and how that helps you to ride out the rough patches

TEM142: Successfully launching a nationally acclaimed music institute before you can even legally drink: A conversation with Buddy Deshler

The story behind how Buddy Deshler successfully launched the Fredericksburg Brass Institute at the age of 20 and the lessons he's learned along the way.

What You'll Learn:

  • The characteristics that led Buddy to not only have such big ideas but the followthrough to execute them as a 20-year-old
  • Why Buddy built his team based on the people on the team rather than on the specific mission (since that mission can and will change)
  • How the first iteration of FredBrass was a good idea but the wrong format and at the wrong time (and how they couldn't have figured that out until they tried and failed)
  • How the benefits of being young and naive help with networking fearlessly
  • How Buddy approached asking (and affording) big names for the first FredBrass when it obviously hadn't existed before
  • The failed attempt at FredBrass expansion in 2016 and what they learned from it
  • How Buddy developed his product, The Entrepreneurial Student, a presentation that he offers to universities and conservatories
  • The difference between networking and relationship building
