arts-ac job coaching

Coaching for any artist -- musical, visual, or anything else -- who wants to turn their skills into an academic job.

Navigate the Arts-AC World with help from an expert.

A single tenure-track job in the arts can get upwards of 250 applications. There's no magic wand for getting an offer, and everyone's journey is different; but step one is figuring out what makes you stand out from the pack – as an artist, an academic, and a teacher.

a job portfolio only you can write.

Whatever your starting point, I'll help you figure out what makes you unique as a job candidate. We'll work together to develop cover letters, a CV, and teaching/diversity statements authentic to you. Along the way, you'll develop skills in reading and deciphering a job announcement, comparing your values with an institution's, and other skills to help you not just get a job, but a job you love.

Confidence at every step of the job search.

An interview isn't just about "being yourself" – it's about making sure a search committee sees all the best parts of yourself. I'll help you with every step of the interview process, from the phone interview to the campus visit. You'll learn how to research a school efficiently, understand the dynamics of an interview question, and build job talks/teaching demos/recitals that show you at your best every time.

The advice and coaching I received was key in my preparation and navigation of the collegiate hiring process. Greg provides essential tools for music graduates seeking to launch into the professional world.

Working with Greg has been incredibly beneficial to my job search. Music is such a specialized field that his feedback was directly applicable to many situations... he helped me to secure interviews at a myriad of institutions.
