106 - Leila Viss on Navigating Through a Personal Crisis

Music Studio Startup: Helping music teachers thrive as entrepreneurs

Today’s podcast hits on one of the harder aspects of being a music studio owner and one of the harder aspects of life in general: navigating through a personal crisis. In a time of crisis, your world is turned upside down. You might be facing uncertainty, confusion, grief, pain, or a whole host of emotions, but the rest of the world is still turning. And as business owners, taking time away to figure things out may not be as simple as calling your admin and trusting them to take care of all the logistics. Today my guest, Leila Viss, shares the story of the crisis that hit her family a few years ago and how she journeyed through the first hours, days, weeks, and months that followed, both personally and professionally. A full transcript and resources from this episode can be found at MusicStudioStartup.com/episode106.

092: Getting Under the Hood, with Leila Viss (88 Piano Keys)

Musicality Now

On the show today we're joined by Leila Viss, author of the 88PianoKeys.me blog and the book “The iPad Piano Studio”. In her own piano studio Leila specialises in helping students be more creative on keyboard and together with Bradley Sowash at 88 Creative Keys she runs workshops and provides online training to help other teachers to empower their students creatively. As you'll hear in this episode, Leila knows from personal experience what it's like to not feel creative as a musician, and to learn it step-by-step in a practical way and it was fascinating to hear how she did this and how she now helps others to do the same. In this conversation Leila shares: • Three pivotal experiences that opened up a route for her to become more creative • Why it might be okay to steal from musicians you admire - and what it means to "steal like an artist" • One simple exercise she uses with her students to help them start being creative on the keyboard We find Leila really inspiring in how she approaches playing and teaching music, and we think you're going to enjoy hearing the specific ways as well as the overall mindset that have enabled her and her students to transform from on-page sheet music readers into free and creative musicians.
