IF I GO TO BEST SCHOOL, STUDY WITH THIS PERSON, AND PRACTICE REALLY, REALLY HARD, THEN, I WILL
How many of you are thoroughly exhausted by this tired, old LIE?
I see you over there with your second (or third) coffee, oscillating between burn out and practice guilt.
No matter how many pep talks you hear from your well-meaning teachers, you still struggle with fear of the unknown. You still get anxious on stage, and believe the lie that something's wrong with you.
"I should be good at this by now," you tell yourself, referring both to stage fright and that one phrase in your solo piece that's still not "there" yet.
Then you hop on Instagram only to see that an old roommate just won an orchestra job. You're kind of happy for her, but a part of you wonders if the countless hours you've spent in the practice room are enough. You push aside, for the thousandth time, the nagging thought of "what am I going to do with my music degree?"
Here's where I jump in and tell you that you're not alone.
What if I told you that your time in your degree, or wherever you are right now, could set you up for a successful, fulfilling career?
I'm Elizabeth and I've built a portfolio career as a performer, teacher, clinician, and speaker. I'm passionate about helping musicians just like you turn their talents into a thriving career.
I offer lectures and workshops at colleges across the country about life as a professional musician. From creating a successful private studio, to asking businesses for their support, to finding resourceful ways to fill the needs in your community: I'm here to help you grow from an enthusiastic artist to one with multiple job offers and a thriving career.
"Be your own artist,
and always be confident
in what you're doing."
What people say...
Elizabeth’s lectures were highly valuable and packed with beneficial material. Weeks after her visit, students and I still found ourselves discussing her priceless gems of advice and experiences, and I am positive the information they all took in will surely help them after they graduate and begin their own professional careers. Elizabeth’s lectures were professional, clear, concise, and engaging, and are applicable to all disciplines. I highly recommend them!

Thank you so much for sharing your wealth of information! I found myself already applying several principles that you discussed in the lessons I taught right after your presentation, and I benefited SO MUCH from your networking tips! Networking is something that's so important in the music world but nobody ever helps us learn to do it. I'm looking forward to using some of your tips and pushing myself out of my comfort zone to meet people!

Elizabeth’s workshop on Performance Anxiety was a perfect way to start our semester. She brought to our attention the need for conscious awareness of our inner voice and gave us practical ideas to redirect our thoughts and work through negativity. Her experience and expertise in psychology and music provided us with information necessary to help us to not only overcome performance anxiety but also the stress associated with restrictions during Covid-19. Ms. Rosinbum exuded positive energy and genuine interest in inspiring us to be the best performers that we can be, at any age or stage of development.
