Music Ed Mentor Podcast #55: Comebacks, Hobbies, and Reinventing Yourself

Music Ed Mentor Podcast #55: Comebacks, Hobbies, and Reinventing Yourself

This week my guest is Jason Heath, veteran teacher, performer, author, clinician, and consultant. Jason is also the host of Contrabass Conversations, an amazing podcast devoted to exploring music and ideas associated with the double bass. 

This episode is a little different. I know I’ve said that before, but this time it’s especially true. Typically I bring on someone who is an expert in a specific area and I grill them with a thousand questions so we can all benefit from their experience. This week, instead of preparing questions for Jason, we began with no plan or agenda. I just wanted to talk with him as a friend, and let our wandering conversation go wherever.

We touch on hobbies, failures, successes, how to keep energized in your career, and so many other topics…but for me it all came down to one lesson: you get to create your own life.
