Trudy Chan has had a multifaceted career in music. The former Senior Manager of Promotion at Boosey & Hawkes, Trudy now heads her own boutique composer management company, and works as a collaborative pianist, most notably as one half of the Cheah Chan Duo, which puts on six concerts of art song and piano music each season.

Trudy and I have been friends for years, and we’ve had the pleasure of performing together several times.

During the course of our conversation, we touched on:

  • Friendship as the basis for working relationships
  • Working for a traditional publisher
  • Approaching performers and ensembles
  • Doing your research
  • The Virtue of Patience
  • Being judicious in mailing materials
  • Preparing for conferences
  • The importance of showing up
  • The dance of building relationships
  • Business partners
  • Some advantages and disadvantages of traditional publishing
  • Submission tips
  • Program notes
  • Follow-up emails
  • Black Tea Music
  • The differences between promotion and publicity
