I am all for getting my foot in the door - and taking opportunities for professional development. If you are early in your career, jump at opportunities, no question
However, chronic undervaluing of your work or your value as an artist will result in long term challenges
This is true both in your personal work, and in organizations you may be responsible for. Best piece of advise I’ve ever gotten from a colleague is this
“people know when you are desperate”
If you have a strong product, market it well and talk about it often. Value what you do, and advocate for yourself and your programs
Welcome! I am a percussionist, conductor and artistic leader who drinks a lot of coffee.
