A career in music can be a roller coaster ride of emotions: high achievement, followed by low moments crippling self doubt, over and over again. I have been on this ride for nearly twenty years, and the common trait amongst all successful professionals is clear - grit. At your greatest moments, grit will keep you grounded. At your lowest, grit can lead you out of the dark place and back on the path forward. Join Bruce each week for stories, strategies, and insights to help you no matter where you are on the journey!

Expecting great things!

We may not all be lucky enough to study with Dr. Faske in person, but his podcast may be the next best thing. No matter where you are in your endeavors, we've all got some hills to climb. I couldn't ask for a more encouraging voice in my ear as I tackle my next one. Each episode is a dose of realism with a spoonful of inspiration, plus a chaser of reassurance. Looking forward to dozens more!
