In today’s podcast, we interviewed Dr. Julie Troum, the author of The Motivated Musician blog. She does educational consulting, student seminars, and teacher workshops. Her research addresses the motivational issues musicians face during training activities with respect to the individual needs, well-being, and personal satisfaction of the training musician.
