Fathers of teenage daughters
Girls are often at the peak of their self esteem just
From that point onwards, it takes a painful decline. That trend might end

Bringing soul back to music
Most professional musicians dedicate their life to their instrument and their music.
Very few get external reward in the form of recognition or stable income.
Others continue on the path out of love. That love is connected with a wish to express something that cannot be expressed in words. Most musicians have a need to share their love with others.
In the struggle to be a musician, compete for the limited paying jobs and labor to prove oneself, many get burnt-out. They develop shields to protect them from the hard facts of life. Unfortunately, these very same shields often prevent or at least compromise the soulful expression of love.
Our goal is to explore together the feelings we have about our music and our musical expression and try to find new ways to keep the soul thriving within the confines of a musical career.
Some of the areas we work on are: perfection and judgement, shame, stage fright, expression from the heart and playing together with others.
