Actually, I’m coming home from Eastman today but that really doesn’t matter. Yesterday, I was a featured guest lecturer for Eastman’s “Realities of Orchestra Life” course, offered through their unique Institute for Music Leadership. I delivered a lecture entitled Determining A Bargaining Position: How musicians can use observation, communication, and analysis to determine their value in a relentlessly changing environment.
The students were just as much fun as last year and I’ll be sure to publish a report of what went on next week. In the meantime, you can check out details from last year’s lecture entitled “Negotiating Your Future”, which featured a mock negotiation session, here.
