One Pot-Earning Play I Love
"The first pot earning play is floating flops to steal turns in this. Play the general way it works. Is you call the flop seabed with the plan of bluffing when they check on the turn. So it's a very simple call now bluff later plan and i absolutely love this play and i wanna share with you how to do it properly. There's five aspects that really help. If all of these things are in place really help this place succeed number. One is to be in position. Everything in poker's easier when you're in position you all know this right and being in position makes it more likely your opponents going to fail to seabed from out of position on the next street when they show you that weakness it's your time to pounce aspect number two is to have some equity. Now you can do this Call the flop. Beloved the turn with absolutely no equity. No draw no good pair. Nothing potential right. It's like holding eight. Seven on an ace king deuce flop but i really liked to do this with some sort of pair or even a backdoor draw or over cards on the flop that kind of equity just in case they call back into something. Good for example. You're holding the king. Spate queen of spades and the flop is nine three deuce with one spade so there are some really good. Turn cards for you. A king a queen gives you top pair. A jack or ten gives you a gut shot draw and any spade gives you a flush draw now if he checks to you on any of those cards and then you decide to bet and he calls. You can hit a good card on the river completing astray completing a flush giving you a top pair hand even a two pair trip kings. Now the third aspect is that the razors range missed both the flop and the turn so your opponent they raised pre flop and you called in position. They have plenty of. Ace king ex-queen x. hands in their range. So what kind of boards are they going to hate seeing probably low in dry boards. Things like nine do's and four or five seven also like monotone boards and even to tone boards couple of spades out there. That's going to be pretty scary if they don't hold a spade

Google vs. Roku Over the YouTube TV App
"Either listeners. It's brett molina here. Welcome back to talking tech by co host. Mike snyder is off today now. I thought one of the benefits of switching from cable to streaming was. We'd avoid a lot of these carriage deals you're about you know the case where you see an ad maybe for your carrier from channel saying you're gonna lose this channel by the end of the month. Let your cable provider no familiar with all that messaging will it seems like that kind of stuff has carried over now into the streaming world and the latest example of this is roku versus google roku has warned users of its devices who are also subscribes to youtube tv that they might lose access to the app citing quote unfair terms and quote from google according to a copy of the email that was obtained by usa today which you can read about tech usa today dot com the company behind the popular media streaming players told users that recent oceans with google to continue to carry youtube tv broke down because roku cannot accept what they call google's terms as we believe they could harm our users The email also says it roku is committed to reaching a deal so that they can keep youtube tv on the players. Now of course. Google has responded to this day in in their statement. They say they're disappointed that they chose that roku has chosen to make these kind of claims while they continue to go and that they are trying the best they can to offer a deal that benefits the viewers of tv as well as everyone that owns a roku Now this isn't the first time we've heard with roku hosting other apps as you recall when hbo max launched in may twenty twenty.

Are Oxalates Damaging Your Thyroid?
"Sally welcome to show great to be here. You're looking forward to this and we were kind of discussing this early on. Oscillates is something that i've always kept my eye on for the last seventeen years and does really looking forward to this conversation. So why don't we lay a little bit of bedrock for the listeners. And if you could just talk about what our oxalates and do we know. Why plants actually hawks elites yes. Plants are major producer of oxalate in oxley also ubiquitous in nature itself soil is loaded with it Even apparently cease spray produces some oxley in polluted. Air produces oxalate so and really heavily polluted cities. The air has got oxalate in it too. So oxalate is really miniscule molecule that's parent compounds called oxalates acid an acid anais and become charged particles because they drop off the acidic protein and so they become these negatively charged ions that attract positively charged. Things and oscillates can have a one negative or too. Negative is tiny tiny little compound. It has four oxygen which is a heavy load of oxygen on just too little carbon molecules says very oxyde oxygen heavy which is probably partly why. It's such an pro max. Ident molecule oxidation is very bad for tissues membranes might qendra and it is a great mitochondrial poison membrane destroyer and troublemaker.

Apple and Facebook Are All Ears
"Okay fair warning. We are about to get a bit meta this. Podcast episode is about the future of podcasts and why to tech companies apple and facebook are plunging feet first into the audio pool recruits. Peter kafka's. you're talking about. Hey peter so over the last couple of weeks there's been a bunch of talk about how big tech companies are getting into audio. There's apple and facebook. Let's start with apple which has more experience in this space. Tell me what apple is doing in the world. Podcasts apple mostly created the market for podcasts. And i say that knowing that people in the madame because apple did not technically invent podcasts. But they're the ones who sort of brought it to the mainstream back in two thousand five and then they pretty much left it alone. They have not tried to do much with podcasting. They have not assigned many people They haven't put much resources toward it and they haven't tried to make any money and now that's changing a little bit. They are going to allow individual podcast creators and publishers to sell subscriptions to podcast within apple. And so there might be a sm- they're gonna say smallish business. I think it's gonna be a huge business but it's gonna be something for apple so they've gone for making no money on it to making potentially some money so apple's going basically take a cut of podcast revenue that's made by a show host or pretty sure is that is that right. That's exactly right. It's the same same model. They have for apps and services like hp max etcetera. The publisher over makes the thing keeps seventy percent. Apple keeps thirty percent if you keep doing it for more than a year that cut goes to eighty five and fifteen

And i was like ooh like hell ambitious and the reason i say this is ninety s. Fashion is very tricky period of time to tackle. It's not all that long ago. It's not like it's forgotten. And you and i were actually both teenagers in the ninety s. I think a little bit older than you. So i was early nineties. You're kind of late ninety s but we lived these close firsthand so it's not like we don't know anything about them and that's really interesting in and of itself because it's a bit of a rarity oftentimes that s fashion stories. We're working on periods where we actually wore those fashions. So the reason i'm saying it's tricky is because the nineties. The styles in fashion is exceedingly resistant to categorization. Would you agree with that. Oh yes that was one of the biggest houses with project. And you have this wonderful quote early on in the book and you're quoting a fashion journalist. Marion hume who wrote in harper's bazaar and the december nineteen ninety nine issue. You know like we're right on the edge of like going to the next millennium. And she said quote. We have lurched from modern to retro from glitz glamour from puritan pretty from military to minimal. Only to max. Out at the finale with an opulent flourish of beating and a rash of irony.

"max" Discussed on Max Q from Peabody LAUNCHPad
"Sophisticated sometimes when we as adults look back on our youth we forget how sophisticated we were because we seem a little silly now but you know. Young people are very sophisticated. There's so sophisticated there so Some of the pieces are political. Some of the pieces are deeply powerful And i'm excited for the world to hear what these young singers these young musicians have to say about the world around them And And i think we'll all be the better for it this weekend. We also had had a concert with our littlest composers. We had twelve twelve world. Premieres of instrumental works. They worked for about four weeks with aaron bush who was in a young composer from philadelphia. Amazing woman who runs the women's composer project which is a choir camp.

"max" Discussed on Max Q from Peabody LAUNCHPad
"Is so weird so you need sometimes some foiling and so i was like i went home thyroid that for days i was like we do have a mass to great. Oh my gosh. I could write music. Composer m i composer so anyway so The that in tandem with looking at the maryland state fine arts standards which i am obsessed with as well. That's a whole meeting. But i am obsessed with the standards and creativity has to be part of the music classroom in your orchestra program if you're not creating opportunities for students to create new works in response to the repertoire. That they're that they're performing. And i don't mean just improvising. Sometimes i mean revising and elevating a piece all the way to the end. If you're not criminals opportunities than you are not in alignment with the mail and say fine arts standards. Your you know your program is not. It's not an alignment just generally i think it's a this is a yet again. Another whole nother meeting like the threads of music education at all levels that are disempowering. So i mean. I love yes. This threat of creating empowering music happening at the collegiate level to it should be happening everywhere from p to twenty one. We should see student creating responding connecting and performing so so that to say so. We started that goal and so of course we took so much time with at six years so that the first two years teachers could really elevate their skills in composition And so we really invested in that and This year so this year two things happened in twenty twenty number one. I i Published my first piece. Say her name Through how leonard In two thousand and twenty one elevation of that is. I'm starting my own series. Sue how leonard. is very exciting. And it's called exigency for young voices and it will be a coral series for elementary middle school and early high school. I'm singers that uplift black and latinx next composers for that for those for those young voices really exciting opportunity. We're also of course going to be sharing student composition so this year In a couple years ago. I guess now it's been two years ago. We we wrote in any a grand partnership with intercultural journeys And the project was for twenty twenty twenty twenty one right the right in the middle and i was like we still do it. But we commissioned a twenty minute song cycle from the students and the music is beyond anything. I could ever imagine music with sound like that. Came from young people for their first. This is their first full composition. We scaffold it. We'd had scaffold approach. They worked with todd. Mac over from mit to to share his full of thirty minute New composition of voices philadelphia. A lot of their musical ideas were shared in that piece of again. They weren't then finishing the whole thing off. Then we premiered that work at carnegie hall with the new york with the philadelphia orchestra really great opportunity. We've worked with local singer songwriters to sing their pieces and talk through their process and do some small activities. We've been scaffolding it up and this year it was great. You got to feel twenty minutes And they've done it. And that concert will be april thirtieth of this year and And it's four original works. That are jest.

"And i feel like i think a couple years later after you know some people had had moved on from san max other things. I don't think. I don't think i would have been a even a candidate if we hadn't had those kind of really positive experiences playing together back back when we were nineteen or whatever you know it's funny how those those feels so sort of like pivotal now and at the time. That's totally what i was thinking about it. I was just thinking about trying to play my part as well as i could. You know But hindsight is always you know is is sort of this. You know interesting. Perspective for us Yeah i think that gets to a really A really good point and something for students to think about as they're in school like the colleagues that you're working with in school. Those are the people that will be your contemporaries as you graduate. And as you move on easy to forget because everybody is a student together just trying to make it through the semester but in terms of sandbox. What what would you say Your roles look like within the ensemble. Do you divide and conquer different responsibilities. You all do a little of everything. How does that look for you. Especially being non-profit absolutely we definitely. I guess we all have different jobs. Basically agassi divide and conquer a little bit but we. It was a long process to kind of figure out exactly what certain corners people were going to sort of manage themselves and since becoming a nonprofit that has become i think even more defined more clear l. I think i was like to think of it. Like into categories. Like there's jobs that people kind of just gravitated towards over time because maybe they really good at particularly at one area where they were really interested in one area and then there's the other category which is like things that like you know nothing about but you kind of rise to the occasion like you know what this is something that we really need to get done. I feel like i want. I'm ready to take on that responsibility art. I'm at least ready to learn about how to do that. Specific thing you know. So i guess to give you some Some specifics i i manage although the money in the group on my kind of like the financial coordinator. I guess And that was kind of i. Guess kind of in both categories like it was just sort of like from the first ever dollar that we made it was just like oh like because i i guess i was the one who liked kind of gathered. Everyone it was just kinda like. Oh like i'll i'll just hold onto the dow hold onto that one dollars right now. Let's just say that. And then that one dollar turned into dollars and then eventually like that grew a little bit more and more and more end. So i just kind of always manage the money in Absolutely by by no means. Is it something that unlike By particularly gifted at like. I don't think unlike in a a not like amazing nath. I'm not like. I don't have an accounting background. So i guess it has been something that personally. I've i've kind of decided like. Oh i'm gonna rise it occasion. 'cause this is where they need me. This sandbox needs me. And i think we each the four of us all have an example of that. Like for terry for instance. I know like he. He manages all the grants and for for after becoming a nonprofit. That started out as being like a lot of work. And then then transitioned to a nonprofit. It became a ridiculous amount of work. So that has definitely been something that is like kind of rising to the occasion tack. More grants split. Yes kinda having opera. Not i mean it. Sorta attracts a lot of a lot of facets of the organization..

"See what. An audio engineer could do In terms of snow shaping. The art is crafting is Is the artistic craft too. And that's when my priorities shift from being a pianist trying to be a pietas while not trying trying to be a concert. Pianist as career to being nabiel edgy art. And i think that's all that's that's there's nothing wrong with changing career while you're in college s with your And i don't regret not being of yannis. Do you feel like your experience as a performer. Informs your work as an audio engineer. Yeah i the twenty years of musical training that i received a Pena's that has. It helped me so martian in my career as an engineer because right especially nowadays people trust engineers who are musicians who knows southbound and who knows the music and just being a musician you have so much more I wouldn't say leverage but you know it's so much better than hiring someone who came from a background doesn't know anything about music and only the technical side and i've been doing a lot surprisingly i'm doing you a lot of tuning these days for for engineers and i know that i've worked with and I think my training as a musician. You know all the the side reading the site saying old acquire actually helped to Just have a pair of trained years would help you so much as an engineer. You mentioned that you do quite a bit of freelancing as well what are some of the strategies that you have or experiences good or bad you've had when negotiating with clients so it's very normal. It's a eighty percent of the times client. Couldn't pay you for what you asked for. And you know it's very understandable because it's hard to be a musician making money so oftentimes they would give you a project and it was a. Hey i can only pay you three hundred dollars but you know it's the if you're to call them it's going to be. Let's say a six hundred dollar fee so in that situation you don't wanna lose the client But you also don't want to put yourself at the lower value than what you deserve. So oftentimes i will tell them. Hey like for this project. I will normally charge amount of feet but i understand your difficulties And i like you as a client or as a musician. I love you. I would do it for your fee as a friend discount or as a musician discount. And that way you know you're not lowering your value. And they know that you're doing them a favor which would probably come in handy in the future. They will appreciate your help. Your understanding is always good to just make a friend. But i don't know i wasn't able to. I mean sometimes. I try to stick to my feet just because i think they could afford it like you've l. Asked me to do something. I wouldn't give them a huge discount but you know for independent musicians is really hard for them. So i try you know. Try to to to to to to stick to a lower fee and to do the project instead of you know not working with them and that's kind of a. It's a constant struggle and it's a compromise. Do you find that by Making those compromises you end up with more clients. It's kinda hard to tell because you don't know what didn't happen. You know you know what's the otherwise situation. But i think that makes me feel better because we are not in this music. All of us were not in this music industry to be milliner. We're doing it for art. So tell sometimes is very necessary to sacrifice the money and the income for for other more important reasons as an artist. And it's easier for me now. Because i have this giga snl. So i can afford to take a lower rate at other gates. Which is what i want to do in the future Or have a source of income. That i can support myself and have another outlet where i can support my artistic needs by. Yeah i understand. it's a it's difficult. it's a balanced. We all kind of have to just keep working on it. Yeah and probably finding your own like balance point of value versus time exactly exactly. Yeah well tom thank you so much for joining us in for sharing all of your experience a lot of great stuff here and i hope that the students really take your words to heart. Thank you thanks.

"About who you know So i started going out. To clubs and meet musicians need engineers Just reached out to all the people. I know who are working in new york city area And eventually A friend of my or someone. I know introduced me to a recording studio in story. Call some hotel They were. They focused on jazz recording. Mostly nine. I will say ninety percent lowest jazz recording so i started intern called intern there. just to see how the studios are operated a new york. I wasn't getting paid at first. And then they paid me a little bit And that was when i was still doing the job so i had that in the studio the first studio job going on at same time and in a couple months later i was at a show and i saw Michael formanek he said faculty. Ed peabody was be a faculty at fiu. Id theft a couple years ago He's bengals play and he was actually doing a session at october and Studio the day after so he asked me if i wanna go check all the studio at meet the owner so i did and left my contact with him And i followed up i. I emailed owner multiple times saying. Hey i if you you mentioned that you need someone you need help I think i can do this job like you know if you want me through. Could you let me know if you back. So that's how. I got the second gig at october And in a couple months later i was added show again a show and i run into this engineer that i met once who was also recording the the show that day and we started talking and he mentioned that he Well i don't i. Don't he mentioned it. That time But anyway we started talking. We exchanged contact numbers a couple weeks later. He's the workspace that he has a opening opened a spot so he asked if i wanted. Joy share basically share a working a studio with him. just know a mixing. Mastering studio just shared a space And read and stuff. So that's how we Kind of connected in october of two thousand eighteen a year after moved to new york this engineered and i met. He gave me a call and turns out he worked at snl and there was the open the a very basic level position open and he asked. If i'm ready for this job and i was like yes definitely. yes definitely. This is what i've been waiting for So yeah that's how. I got the gig. Nbc that's amazing. Yeah it was a it was i looking back. I think i was very lucky Maybe i mean maybe people maybe part of it is locked but i feel like a lot of it is also. You really reached out as yan's like you talk to a lot of people and you developed relationships and then you kind of you didn't let down either. You're following up. Yeah exactly so. Tell me more about that. Process like the following up and the networking. What are the things that you did that. You felt like made that process successful for you. Well i'm you know me pretty bubbly person. I love to talk to people to start with and It's kinda hard to put a formula. Honored is mostly you know you. Just you have to fundamentally you have to put yourself out there and you know i might have had like ten bad conversations with ten people who would never help me or who you know but if you have one conversation that this one correct person that changes so you just have to put yourself out there and be genuine and just present yourself. Show them who you are. Yeah and Follow up is very important too because you know especially in new york. Everybody's running around everybody's meeting twenty thirty new people a and this. You know you give them your cart. They might not even remember to call you back or held two days later that they met you even though he had this hamas. So it's very horton that you have their contact and maybe you know if you don't hear back from the way for a couple of days mary. Hey we've met at this event. And i really enjoyed talking to you. I will act to stay stayntouch and maybe you know what you've been doing what you're working on what you're what you're looking for in the future. You know stuff like that. Yeah yeah so sort of making sure that you're not afraid to have those conversations even if not all of them are successful and continuing to poke those people when you don't hear from them. Yeah so outside of your training in school in audio recording and sciences What are the skills or areas that you found most helpful as you develop your career So the the things that we've learned in classes and what a teacher hamas is steph weighing. You know you have to know those technical things to be an engineer but outside that's just ten percent of started or to our and ninety percent of it. Is this your crafts and go out to the real world and just do. There's just no other way you just have to. You know you know all the theories you might not everything about audio on buddies alte sessions every single debuted long else. Mike's you're not. You're not going to be a good engineer. So what i learned is that Internships and summer jobs. Or you know any job that you can get on while you're in school if that's very helpful. I started my first inter shape in mice software summer of fart after my sophomore year. And i've been doing. I've been working in autofill reporting every single summer and while i'm this too So i went to tanglewood and once you bev sent one year i went to reward one year after of after i finished my coursework i lead. I was leading off program at the atlantic music festival. And while i was a student i was working at a church running lifestyle and doing recordings for them so all of that helps you see what the real world looks like and learn from professionals who are actually doing their job out there and not just from the confessors who teach you know what they know or what you what you need from fox so as a student.

Currently based in new york city in addition to her work as a studio engineer she has also a music production mixer and editor at saturday night. Live hey tom. Thanks so much for joining us today. Yeah thanks for having me here. Really good to see you again Do let's get started. And i'd really love to hear what your life looks like right now. Okay so i actually just started working two weeks ago We i took a very long break while. Not you know not that i want you. But because of covid oh. My work got suspended at the end of march. And there hasn't been any work that i was able to do because a lot of stuff is in the studio lot of interacting with people So i was on break up until two weeks ago An an snl started to get ready for the shows which happened The first show happened last week so we started preparing for died And there's another place that i worked at the medicine for Classical music so I work at a studio there. And we did a couple of sessions last week and the week before so right now things are still kinda as still picking up Getting busy but not as busy as before covid. Yeah that's why. I'm glad that you're able to get to work and do some more of that again. I yeah me too. It's it's really a feels a little strange Getting back to work but you know it takes time to get used to. Yeah so what was the. What was your schedule. Like before covid. Just throw comparison sure Before kobe i was very busy I was working almost every day. And i was traveling a lot for work too so I work at now doing show week for two days a week before but right now i doing a different jobs. So i'm working three days a week so Before covid i had two days now two or three weeks a month I was working at a recording recording studios one is called up tavern and they focus on New music jazz classical also work at dimona center. I just mission They do. Broadway shows cast albums. A larger orchestra recordings Emphasized that i also worked for this company called music. Mix mobile there A broadcast Recording company they travel around the country. Doing a rita shows things like you know. The iheartradio concerts super bowl. Nba all star and a bunch of summer festivals. So i worked for that company. Doing portal's operations. So i've been traveling a lot with them swell and besides that is just you know. Little mix and editing gigs. That i get from engineers that i know a musicians so yeah life before cohen was pretty busy and then you know i got to take a break from that and pick up you know my life take plans sometime with edwin. So that was nice. Yeah probably sounds like you had a lot going on so that was probably a bit of a relief in so yeah it was it was it was getting. It was getting really busy. I think before covid. I was working two months straight with no break. Oh my gosh have yeah. It's good to be busy but you know when you're working every day and just trying to find a day to do laundry it. Yeah so how did you keep yourself organized especially with traveling and going from place to place. Because i can imagine. That's probably yeah a lot. That's the challenge I rely on a calendar. Allot google calendar of. That's that was ninety percent of my life Whenever i hear about a giga half depending on calendar immediately because after why otherwise you know few minutes later you forget about it and is also very important for me to keep a good balance between my and work I tried to go to the gym day before a read That's impressive yeah it is. It's very hard because sometimes you you know you go to work At night or at eight. Am and you finish at eight. And you're like oh. I could go home. Relax or i could go to jam and work on my body and what you do. So it's it's definitely it takes disciplines but it's very important especially for the line of work that we're in. It's very important to stay healthy Have a good diet that will make everything better So you mentioned a bunch of different organizations that you work for do. Could you talk a little bit more about how you got from graduating school to now working for all these different places in. You're based in new york is that right. Yes yeah. I'm here full-time all the time. So kind of a. It's a journey i graduated. I finished my school. Coursework for recording arts An acoustic semesters acoustics in two thousand fifteen But dot year. I didn't do my piano recital. So after two thousand fifteen. I was working at the company doing audiovisual system design. Telephone system designed An acoustics is office job. So i was doing that for almost fulltime while preparing for my recital in two thousand sixteen. So that your i. After i finished my side my recital. I realized that i hated that job. A not where i wanted to be. I have to make was telling me that i have to move to new york and just pursue what i want in life and also just start a career that i really love so after my settle was stunned I it was actually. I got lucky because the company that i was working for. They opened an office in new york city. And i asked to transfer this office. So i can you know have income while looking for other jobs in music and audio so i moved to new york That summer the summer of two thousand sixteen and still working for that company. And i just started to go out. I know that have a new york. Everything's about connection pretty sure everywhere is the same is.

Shoot in new york towards the end of the semester. Where really excited about it. It's it's fun to start closing this out. What advice would you have for current students. Sometimes i feel hesitant to even offer advice to current students because i have so much to learn from them but maybe that's part of my advice is to remember that. Yes you are students but you're also artists and musicians in you already. Have artists musicians dancers. Researchers you already have so much to contribute I wanna say that. I that i also want to reiterate to be curious and ask questions and look for experienced the experiences that you haven't had before Whether that means seeking out collaborate collaborations with peers. Whether that means seeking out mentorship taking a class that has or elective that has very little to do with your major There are so many things to learn that can inform what we do in getting out of our comfort zone or out of kind of our routine plays such a large part in that and transferable skills are a very real thing in a very important thing both taking skills from other work or other projects in applying to our artistic practice and also taking skills from artistic practice in applying them to other work. Both things are really Really useful and i can often be really fulfilling so i think my two biggest pieces of advice are remembered that you are already in artists and also remember that. There's a lot more to learn a lot to be curious about. Thank you so much. Sarah so glad you're here with us today. Thank you so much for having me. You can learn more about sarah at her website.

"But making sure. I make a point to prioritize what i care about what love doing. I think that's a great perspective. Do you have any tricks for staying organized with all of these different activities that you are balancing right now. Honestly google drive drive. Great much lifesaver. you know. That's still something. I'm figuring out. I i am serious about google drive. It's it's really. It really help is helpful with collaboration. End with keeping myself organized keeping different projects organized and being able to work with others in this projects when needed that's kind of a very practical organisational thing as far as more about Time balancing and time management organization. I will say that is something. I'm really trying to figure out right now because my life has changed a lot in the last couple of months. settling into a schedule I have a good friend who always helps me. Make my schedules to make sure that i scheduled time. Time to eat and sleep I recommend finding a friend to help you do that. Because sometimes we tend to forget to allow times for those things So i worked with her to to make a kind of ten of a schedule and now trying to follow that assess. What's working about it. And what's not. My general theory is far as organization. Time management is make a plan but also be patient with yourself and understand that your plan might not work and if it doesn't work then change it. Can you tell me a little more about how you started teaching and has evolved into for you. Sure so i started teaching knows pretty young assisting with group classes i grew up suzuki method kit and as i kind of grew that that method i started working with the younger group classes and assisting with those doing some private teaching in high school And when i came to peabody for the first couple of years. I didn't do much teaching but my third year in peabody i took a pedic pedagogy class and that kind of opened up some opportunities for me to start teaching more regularly in my fourth year at peabody i started teaching at chamber encounters music academy which is a school in pike's bill on does group classes and private lessons. I taught group classes for them for a couple years of violent students and After a year. So i kind of transitioned to teaching primarily private lessons which worked well for me it just based on my schedule and being able to have a little bit of flexibility there and i've been teaching private violin viola lessons.

I must be really exciting to work with them on a daily basis really is it's been so wonderful for the last month already even though it's remote in can Weird circumstances but still really exciting for us. Yeah so you talked about moving to new york during the pandemic which is of course. I can imagine an adventure. D- what are you feel has helped you prepare for your current situation where you're freelancing and moving to a new city pursuing school. What do you think has helped you. The most as you are in this new place. I think a lot of the things that i'm doing now are actually things that i started doing while i was in school in the last two for years of my time peabody not everything but a lot of the things and because of that i feel like it's been a really interesting transition from being in school to being out of school because well sometimes people say that you never have more time the do while you're in school but i like to think that depends on. How many things you do while you're in school for me. I kind of felt like after graduating. I was doing all of the same things without homework. So i felt like i had more time. Actually nice Now i'm in school. So i have homework again. But as i feel that the connections i made in school and a part time work that i was the freelancing is doing the chamber groups. I made a point to play with a lot of those continued into my life after graduation and have also continued into my life in new york outside of baltimore. So it's been an interesting process in that way. something. I think about a lot. How did you started with those things while you were in school. What were the first steps. You took the first steps for me while the very first steps from us being curious and trying to learn about things that i'm may not have thought i would be interested in at first Case in point..

"The thing that makes me happy personally that didn't work for me but I was able to at least identify here's blunting I was spending a Lotta time on that I don't like and then stringency how you fill up your time after that don't focus on what's perfect focus on with not perfect and then just don't don't be afraid to be yourself and put yourself out there. be you know really caring about what you do? Be Persistent keep up a good schedule. You know it's every week him at yourself to working for your career certain amount of time and you know if you give up for a month, YOU'RE GONNA lose a lot of momentum easy to especially out of school. Okay. So that's my general advice and I think, honestly, it relates to the Kobe advice because it was going to say that. Pieces is figure. Because now, more than ever, we have to like find a way Christina put this to me the other day find a way to break through the noise find a way to get people to recognize you from an image or a sentence you right on the internet or something you say video. And it's something I'm still learning about is like how do I make myself seem authentic Caddo and make myself seem worth it not just some random advertisement somewhere on the internet Thinking about just how you can connect with that environment and not being afraid to try it especially, not being afraid to try something that no one else is doing. Yeah is if everyone? I mean I've seen a lot of people posting about free lessons recently. And I'm not really doing it much anymore because I stopped getting students from it like around April so. I don't know if you see everyone else posting about free lessons I mean, maybe maybe don't worry about it. Think about something new you could do that you would enjoy. What you're doing. Work sometimes. Okay I think the only thing I want to ask you here just to kind of close up because I know for me. One of the things that has been really pleasant during Our mutual social isolation is I've been able to read and listen to a lot more music, and so I'm curious if there's anything that you're currently reading or listening to or watching that you kind of want to explore talk about a recommend. Okay. So I have been finding new sources of entertainment. Recently, you know because I was typical like at the end of the day watching Netflix's episode type person. But I'm really able to acknowledge. Now the other things felt my time like cooking during a lot more cooking a lot more baking when I'm not hungry. And listening to more podcasts. A lot of good podcasts out there cleaning this one So like ask your friends for recommendations and I honestly like besides like Max q I've been listening to office ladies the in-depth analysis of office.

"Is with Taylor. Davis, who is a percussionist educator and recording artists who graduated from peabody in twenty nineteen. Taylor currently teaches at Texas. Woman's University and Flower Mound High School is the founder of an educational organization called Percussion Pale and he continues to freelance as a recording artist and percussionist. Taylor. Thank you so much for joining us today or really grateful for you sharing your experience. Could we start by just hearing a little bit about what your life looks like right now. Shirt so all talk. As if we aren't in a covid nineteen time just to give some perspective on what it was in speak a little bit to what I'm doing now. so It's a little bit complicated just in the sense that I think right now at least where I am in my career, I'm doing a lot of small things and then Michael would be a couple years to kind of thin it down and put my focus into specific projects a little bit more So right now, I teach at a high school and then the three feeder junior highs. Role there is the assistant percussion director, which means it's part time. there's a full-time percussion director but. Each day there's about thirteen classes, worth of students that meet with percussionists. So it's just not logistically possible for one person to do it all. And so that's why my position exists and that looks like a couple of things I teach masterclasses in sectionals across all the schools. And Teach. Marching band when that's going and then it's just a lot of private lessons across the East campus. The other thing I do. Is I'm the Adjunct Percussion teacher at a university in didn't end. So that's Texas Women's University I work with percussion students, stare private lessons, percussion methods. Chamber Music This was the first year that we had a studio class. So that was new for the students but I kind of insisted on that when I took the job I thought it was important for them to all be in the room at the same time And then I I do this other thing, this recording business a called by one media and I do that with a colleague that I met in. UNDERGRAD Met On Line and.

"Making this much money or something like that. I do have these kind of philosophies that I check in with about every six months and And if I feel like something is getting off track with one of those those pillars that I talked about that I sit down and reassess the situation in see what I can do to make sure that I'm I'm fulfilling those needs And I can look like a lot of different. Things is being opened with people as one so meeting with my boss and and making sure that. We're both feeling good about the work that we're doing you're talking to my partner about what their needs are in how that aligns with mine didn't where compromise might be So so I don't. It's the very long term thing is so hard for me but taking these smaller steps to able to look into what the future might look like. Help me a little bit and starting to save a little bit of money to. It's always hard but starting with the littlest bit. Yeah Awesome You mentioned in there that you that making art is important to you as well as the administrative work that you do. Could you talk a little bit about how taking a fulltime administrative job has affected or impacted your performance career? And you always so I play with New Music Group in Baltimore called mine on fire. And they're dedicated to playing the works of contemporary composers alongside other art. John Rose in the community. I I lo- play different. Things like church gigs or Sometimes people need ringers for orchestras things like that. But I will say when thinking about performance in having a fulltime job the the idea of time management and just work life balance really comes in into play here And that's something that I got to kind of figure out in school little bit because I was. I had so many part time jobs while it was a student so it was kind of learning how to manage that a little bit but nothing compares to having a fulltime job times when you we've school all of a sudden you don't have this community all the same place at least that was my personal experience. So here's if you stay in touch with your friends and colleagues from peabody or your previous jobs and if so how do you stay in touch with them? Sure so networking has been a really interesting thing for me I don't really the idea that sometimes people will tell you when you leave school when you enter. The workforce is like US Lincoln. I personally don't use Lincoln very much other. It may be good for other fielder It's been crucial for me in my experience. But I think when we hear the the word networking very like sterile business down to business kind of professional word and we really WanNa like have an intention with every interaction that we have and at least. That's the idea that I had of networking when I was in school. And that was very intimidating to me. It was a very scary idea. And as I've entered the workforce I I kind of realized the at least for me. Networking is understanding. What somebody else does. And how that relates to me in finding the common ground so not necessarily approaching somebody in saying you have something that I need to. I want to throw my resume your face. I hope that that we talk soon. It's kind of productive. Yeah that's what I always thought. Networking was like everyone just treating business cards and then I don't know what you're right but instead it's like. Oh you know you do this thing. I do that thing kind of different. But in some ways they connected like let's have a productive conversation about that on in. Maybe maybe see where this goes through those more meaningful conversations of. It's it's much organic to me. And I kind of embrace that that blurred line between social and professional relationships. A little bit when it comes to networking especially in the music field. Because I learned that by by having really good friendships with people you can help people out professionally too. It's like Oh you know. I need to audio engineer. Last minute and Okay well I don't know any like super professional references that I have but I have a friend who I know is great. I knew their work. What we call them up and see if they'll do the favor for me and then later that friend is gonNA need to favor and I'll be happy to return it Other Times Staying connected to two different people. Maybe even in a professional sense is is checking in to say even if you don't you don't have to receive something from every interaction so sometimes it is just sending holiday car. Oh Hey are we haven't talked in a while. How're you doing I saw this thing that I mean. Social media is a really big one Following everything that your contacts doing on social media and and different outlets and just saying oh. This looks great like or. Could you tell me a little bit about your thought process for programming? This and you not necessarily trying to seal their program but Just having informed conversations about the work that you're doing with other people Can really lead to more meaningful relationships other than just. Hey I see that you have the skill or this resource and we need that from you. Here's my email by or something like that so I I kind of approach it more organically. Is there anything that you want to share with current students? Yes So some advice that I have cried students no matter what your future might what you feel like your future might look like or what you're doing now is to use the resources that you do have while you're in school because they are invaluable and especially at somewhere like peabody they are? They're so plenty but to also look outside of school. How little bit look at the community? See what's happening of theirs especially in Baltimore. There's so many things arts and culture here that I never even realized because they weren't necessarily happening in Mount Vernon or they weren't advertised at peabody and it's so easy to get caught up in the bubble of only things happening here within your network and you're so busy it makes sense but when you're out of school it's kind of hard to connect to reality a little bit and I think that starting to understand about certain to understand the ways that your art and cultural experiences can connect to to a greater community or even just take place in a way that is not in a in a conventional setting that you would expect the way that the conservatory sets up for you. So you know Like I said I play a lot of new music In programs connected to different art forms. And that's not something that I was one hundred percent exposed to a peabody. Even though peabody did some great efforts it feels more organic coming from a place of my own interest. So just just looking looking around and seeing what? They're just going to a different neighborhood and trying different coffee shop It you know sometimes are really informs my place in the in the community a lot more even even if you don't plan on Sega Baltimore. It's you know learning how to be a person in the real world. It can start with as easy as going to free me. They have you know. So that's that's number one and the number the number two piece of advice that I have is that it's okay if you don't know what you want to do or where you're going Sometimes it's nice to have so many options and you anything could fall in your lap if you're open to it Who knows who knows what could happen. and I think there's a lot of pressure on especially music on getting that that Solo career or becoming. That were Kestrel musician or making leaking that. Cd or those recordings Playing all these venues that sometimes it doesn't have to look like that or sometimes it can and but maybe the road is a little bit different than you're expecting. That's okay because all you see is the finished product and you don't see the journey but probably everybody has some sort of stumbling of along there. So it's it's okay to not know which I kind of wish somebody told me Vanessa. Thank you so much zoe. This has been awesome. Thank you for sharing. Thank you so much and good luck with your job at Shriver thank you. He was posted. I will out to yes. Thank you Theme Music for the Max. Hugh podcast composed by Vincent Fasano..

"Thought I would like. Somebody things I didn't really know existed need an out of peabody largely largely out but I did feel really inspired by what I was doing at school to print out especially through some jazz courses that I was taking here and that was really life changing because now let's mostly what I do is experimental music proposition. Jazz writing my own stuff Contemporary classical music. What about any setbacks? Do you feel like there has been any significant obstacles that you faced either during your time at school or afterwards and if so how did you get past those? I think that this career really demands that you know yourself really really well. And that's been a pretty big source of stress for me coming to terms with what I'm capable of when not capable of and which things I can change which I can't and that's changed throw my whole life. I'm sure but it's time management. That's really bad at that. Something could freelance. It's gotten better through much hard work. I can say that But also mental health stuff is definitely gotten in my way the last few months especially and I'm not sure how much of that is directly related having graduated been out in the world fully. And how much is that? It's kind of coincidental. But that's something I'm starting to learn. You can't just power through. You have to find some kind of way of gently addressing it like as soon as you start to notice a pattern and I've kind of thought points where I powered through enough that by the time it really gets to me. I can't have no defense against it and takes me weeks to feel like I recovered and I haven't really found it yet. There must be a way to become more conscious of those cycles in emotional health and and in finding ways to boost yourself before I can control to recognize it and then be able to address it sooner and to talk about it with people you trust as there anything in particular that surprises you about your life after graduation. Well I had kind of forgotten what it was like to have any sort of free time so we other than that. I think. Probably just what you'd expect in terms of person now in the real world. How do I knew that taxes are really hard worrying about taxes while you're in school before you have to pay them on that note? I'd like to thank you very much for sharing your insight and your experience. You're welcome. Thanks for being here. Lido recently WanNa new music.

"Helps you gain skills not only in your craft but also how to teach that craft as well again. You're in school to learn how to learn so you know ultimately to be able to teach yourself how to do something how. When I opened up the score does my experience at peabody studying with Mironov How is this going to you? Know How is my experience going to help enrich the experience from how Muhammad I going to approach this gorgeous? How am I going to prepare this or show this sound show this and and so now? I've got all these questions and not necessarily all the answers because as I mentioned a lot of that comes with experience but those kinds of questions are great so that I can help teach those things later on her. You know approach different issues on So I I think that's a along along limited way to answer your question but i. I think that each person's relationship with our mentors gonna be different always assumed the best and come with earning questions like some kind of two things one touch on. I don't know if there's anything burning that you would want to say to current students any advice or words of wisdom. It doesn't have to be. I think I mean there are things that I want that. I want to say that I should say gopher both adjust Strike that don't let your curiosity for music. End at the start and end of your lessons. Classes classes and ensemble rehearsals for me coming out of school understanding what it really means to be a professional musician What it really means to grasp performance practice style. Things like fat. It really comes down to Listening a lot reading literature about composers that interests you or About Music and trying to find your own way. I think it's really easy when you're at school to go with the flow to especially if you're in a program that's really busy doing a lot You know you're required to do all these chamber ensembles. All these large ensembles all these courses in classes seminars and these new initiative classes. You know you're you're now taught you need to think entrepreneurially you can't let that inhibits your love for the music and your desire to know more about it beyond music needs to also be a hobby outside of the class as outside instead of just you know this is my job therefore I do it at these times and that I turn off Don't get me wrong. I think it's really important to have a life. Goodness knows that I don't know how to really make that balance. It's really hard to work music and live there. I think I think I remember seeing a A Pie chart of you can pick to. Hopefully you can pick work in life and live music but you know you got to find some way to to have have a balanced sleep somewhere in sleep somewhere.
