Classical Music is not always so polite.

We think of orchestral concerts as well-mannered, upper class affairs these days. You get dressed up, you choke back your coughs during pieces, you hold your applause until the end of the entire piece.

But art music has a long history of back-stabbing, drama, cruel affairs, and dark enigmas to go along with its storied history. Here’s just a little taste of how composers, critics, and performers have thought of each other across history.

Welcome!

Hello and welcome to my studio blog! This page is intended as a supplement to my professional webpage, http://laurenhusting.com. Gigs, media, and news will continue to update there, but this is a space for me to share knowledge with my students!

I’ll be posting relevant articles, videos, and links in hopes that students of all ages will find new wisdom into music-making.

Enjoy!
