It’s scary to go out and do it.
But what if you had a mentor?
As artists of any kind (music or not), and also as humans, we all want to make a difference. In a non-COVID world, we’d be making a difference by performing or teaching.
Unfortunately, we can’t perform like normal, or even teach like normal. How do we fulfill our artistic vision during this hard period?
That’s where I come in!
My task is to bring your vision and ideas to their highest potential and maximize your reach and impact. I am passionate about helping others create change, impact lives, and feel fulfilled themselves. As a coach, I hold nothing back; you will feel fully supported and be able to ask anything you wish.
My personal experience has taught me many things. Not just the details of how to run a successful festival or a successful online conference, but what it takes to create true community and go beyond people’s expectations.
In June, I directed a two-week online music festival with 104 students, 13 full-time top-tier faculty, and 16 part-time faculty. I recruited all those students (we received a total of 302 applications), connected with my faculty, and managed all the festival details. Even a few weeks after the festival, students still group video-chat and keep in touch because of the bonds they created during the festival.
Last August, I ran the very first summit for classical musicians, specifically string players, which was essentially an online conference with 30 incredible professional artists. I held a successful social media campaign and grew my email list and social media followers from 0 to over 1200 on both my Instagram and my email list.
These successes are completely reachable for you. And with me by your side, you can sidestep every pothole I’ve fallen into and leap past every obstacle I’ve encountered.
Yes, you can do it on your own! But should you?
My expertise will truly ease your uncertainty, your headaches, and will allow you to do way less work than if you were walking into your project with no guide.
Let me join you on your journey.
You’ll learn directly under the incredible Verona Quartet, current Artists-in-Residence at Oberlin College and 2020 recipients of the Cleveland Quartet Award. Not only will they coach your group daily, but they’ll also be giving a private concert for all of us to enjoy!
Come meet other high-level musicians from around the country, play some fulfilling chamber music, and of course, enjoy lots of sightreading and many late nights.
Be filled with great music, new friends, and a close community. Don’t let this winter be uninspiring!
Applications open October 1, 2020, and close November 10, 2020.
During this 3-month period, we’re going to create a lot of change in your business life, and it might even translate to your personal habits!
Imagine being able to feel really confident about the success of your vision before it even materializes. That’s my plan for you and totally manageable with me by your side!

What is SUCCESS to you?
This is one of the most important questions. Goal-setting is something we will go over in the first few sessions, but what are important aspects of your project?
Growing Your Following
Building a following not only increases your credentials but increases your potential client list. If this is one of your goals, I can help! I took my Instagram and email list from 0 to 1200+ in less than 2 months and it continues to grow! It’s now at over 2,200 after 8 months. Let’s build a social media strategy together.
Community is deeper than just a following and this will increase people that are loyal to you and your projects. Let me help you build that community through true interpersonal interaction via Facebook groups, within your program, and long-term. Many of my past students in my programs still keep in touch!
Don’t worry–saying this is not only empowering but important! Never shy away from the reality that we need to make a living; helping people is the best way to do that! I’ll be happy to show you my budget sheets and talk about hidden costs you might not expect.
Launching for Long Term
A sustainable life isn’t just launching one project but creating long-term clients that want to follow what you do in the future. The best way to do that? Blow people away with your first project! They’ll love your work and become lifelong allies. I’ll help you manage details so everything is seamless and you’ll seem like a pro!
Connections are everything, especially because the music world is so small. If you want to get in touch with a big shot, I’ve got experience! Let me show you my email scripts and how to get people to “yes” so you can interview your dream person and show them what you’re made of!
Being Seen As A Leader
Being seen as a visionary and leader in your field is so important, and starting innovative projects is one of the best ways to do that. But you have to implement the project well to be seen as a forerunner. I want to guide you and help you push your way to the front, right where you belong. Let’s dazzle them!
Frequently Asked Questions
How long is the program?
Private and group coaching both run for 3 months, or 12 weeks. Private coaching has no start date; you can start whenever is convenient for you and we will find a weekly time to meet. Group coaching has a specific start date. Schedule a consultation if you’re interested in either option.
What does this cost?
Speak with Alyssa first for a consultation, then we can talk $! It’s important that the cost doesn’t scare you away – personal coaching is an investment, and a worthwhile one! You may not see the value if you’re too stuck looking at the number.

Do I have to have an idea already?
Definitely not! If you know you want to do something online and have a general idea of what you’d like to do, or just know what you’re good at, I would love to help you explore how you can put your skills to use.
Are there any requirements?
You must have a working computer or device with webcam. And a willing spirit! If you have no intention of listening to my ideas, it’s a waste of both of our time.
Who is the program meant for?
This program is meant for any person (musician or not, although I specialize in music), who wants to create an online project. Your project can be a course, a summit, a website, a teaching studio, the list goes on. I have experience with in-person events, but don’t specifically coach on those logistics.
Do you have a payment plan?
Yes! If you decide to work with me, there are 0% interest payment plans available.
