Time Management For Musicians
"I Don't Have Time To Write". How many times have you heard this or even said it yourself? The truth is that we all are in charge of what we do with our time. Even if we work for someone else - it is up to us if we keep working there, or adjust what we do outside of work to live our dream. Being too busy can burn you out and is actually just as unproductive as having nothing to do. In this workshop Ryan shows you how he lives the way he wants to, after learning from being too busy - juggling between making a music festival, studying multiple online courses, running a tour of a country, writing original music, teaching students and being in a healthy relationship! Lose that feeling of being overwhelmed and learn how to feel more in control. Have more free time while being more successful by learning all about time management for musicians!
"Ryan's workshop was very rich and holistic in content, it touched on the key elements musicians or music makers need to face and work on, including how you manage your time, dealing with confidence, planning your future and being strategic. He is not only very talented, gifted and passionate as a musician and composer, but also as a mentor and a trainer. He is very professional, organised and approachable. I found the workshop did make me think and reflect on my musical journey and how I can take steps to deal with my challenges. I think any musician or composer, regardless of their musical background or nature, would immensely benefit from a workshop or mentoring from Ryan. Don't think it twice!"
Award Winning Composer
"I was a guest speaker at one of Ryan's workshops. The questions he asked me for his audience were very informative and knowledgeable. There is much more to songwriting than what can be taught. Ryan finds a way to reach a deeper level in his workshops and make his audience realize that they already have the necessary skills and talent to showcase their creative expression. It was a truly insightful and eye opening seminar."
"Ryan's wisdom is second to none. Through his life experiences he has compiled valuable lessons, presenting them as organized large-scale seminars through to one-on-one coaching with individuals.
He puts emphasis on the fundamentals for finding success on all levels including organization tactics, easy to follow steps to success, stepping out and asking for assistance, and maintaining a healthy psychology while following you passion and building a career out of it.
As an active member of the music industry, Ryan has many network connections and wishes to impart them onto young band and artists so they can find their feet.
His teaching style is very personal as he effectively engages with musicians, building confidence and a connection to teach through. He has a mature patience and down to earth attitude as he has experienced himself first hand many of the problems faced by artists today. Album recording, event organization, touring basics, marketing, legal help and even band dynamics.. you name it.
Ever since attending Ryan's lecturers earlier in the year I have experienced a lot more gratitude towards my situations and rediscovered the motivation to excel in all areas of my career as well as working on myself as a person. I tend to work hard and wear out, sometimes forgetting why music is my passion. However simply by teaching me how to co-ordinate my thoughts and directing me to the right people within the industry. I feel far more accomplished and eager to take on more challenges. I have received measurably more business since and will continue to seek advice from him.
I highly recommend Ryan Kershaw's coaching to my students and peers alike, as I want them to experience his motivational energy so he can aid them as much as he has aided me.
Weather you're looking to becoming newly established in the music industry, being pushed to achieve your best, or simply discovering pathways and learning how to use new opportunities to your advantage, Ryan's coaching is for you."
