We welcome pitches for guest articles that would fit in the following series:

How I Compose

How I Perform

How I Conduct

How I Teach

How I Research

We are looking for short & accessible pieces that showcase thought processes, helpful strategies, and creative insights, from a variety of approaches and contexts. For example, in “How I Conduct,” you might actually focus on how you conduct rehearsals or select repertoire. In “How I Perform,” you might explain how you interpret a particular piece, or describe your practice regimen. Aim for language that would be helpful to undergraduate and graduate music students.

At this time, we cannot offer compensation for any contributions.

Reposts from personal blogs will be considered!
