Most people enjoy harp music, but they also never have a reason to think about what happens when a harpist is NOT playing music. You might be surprised to find that it’s pretty ordinary business operations, done in the service of the harps and music.
On any given morning, you might find me
- Racing to write a blog post for my social media guy. I occasionally get ahead and get blog posts written and scheduled. But when I’m touring and traveling, that gets harder.
- Rescheduling student lessons, which happens nearly every week
- Following up with student notes, checking their performance and exam schedules and planning their lessons accordingly.
- Practicing! Both piano and harp.
- Planning for the next holiday season.
- Invoicing students and venues. Chasing down slower payers.
- Going to networking events.
- Continuing to meet venue owners, caterers and event planners.
While I often get to wear fancy dresses and high heels, there’s the backstage that has to be running smoothly for the performance and teaching pieces to be also delivering the value that I hope, too.
