After having never met Rob Deemer before in person, I had TWO conversations with him in less than a week for the podcast! Conversation No. 1 was marred by some unexpected audio issues, so we re-recorded less than a week later, and that's what you're getting this week.

During Convo No. 2, we talked about:

<ul><li>How side projects can boost your career</li>
<li>Being able to talk about your music</li>
<li>Labels as specifiers &amp; Labels as marketing</li>
<li>Drawing parallels between concert music and other fields</li>
<li>The ways we talk about “new music”</li>
<li>Music as an Experience</li>
<li>Program notes</li>
<li>Social media as a serious form of professional communication</li>
<li>Interacting with musicians when you (or they) live outside of a major metropolitan area</li>
<li>Teaching inexperienced artists how to interact on social media</li>
<li>Forming deeper relationships online</li>
<li>Building community in different ways</li>
<li>Relating public professional interactions to professional didactic experiences</li>
<li>Operating as a professional online</li>
<li>Being human and approachable online</li>
<li>Teaching teachers to compose</li>
<li>Teaching entrepreneurship and business skills</li>
<li>The history of self publishing &amp; the history of teaching music in universities</li>
<li>Career trajectories</li>
<li>Short term gains vs. long term sacrifices in publishing</li>
<li>Making educated and thoughtful business decisions</li>
<li>Balancing your time between admin tasks and writing</li></ul>

However!

Since we covered such vastly different material in each conversation (of course with not-insignificant overlap), we've decided to offer our first conversation as "bonus content" for this week's episode, if you don't mind listening to "the sexiest voice in classical music" through a slight haze of static.
