Why is it important for musicians to think about finance? Well, to put it simply, the average musician just doesn’t make enough money to NOT think about finance.
The unifying thread throughout all of my work is that I want to help musicians become more embodied and use their bodies more efficiently and effectively, throughout their musical careers and daily lives.
My name is Dana Fonteneau and I am the founder and creator of The WholeHearted Musician. I had the great pleasure of introducing myself to Musicovation in October, 2015 (you can read that here.) In case you’re getting to know me the for the first time, it’s important to express that the WholeHearted Musician was created out of a deep need to articulate thoughts, feelings, ideas and concerns I had (and heard from clients) about the music world and the challenge of creating a career. It’s a private practice and business devoted entirely to the personal development and career evolvement of performing artists, particularly from the view point that success is an expression of the whole person (not just the performer), and it is self-defined, self-created and self-fulfilling.
