Get Some Grit! | A Podcast for Emerging Artists
About This Show
My name is Bruce, and I am a university music educator. My journey towards a full-time career in music took many twists and turns – some so jarring that I wondered if I had what it took to survive the trip! What came out of these struggles was my grit. Why grit? Grit combines passion, ambition, toughness and strength of character. If you want a career in the arts, grit will be what separates you from the pack.
Are you scared about where your career in the arts is headed? Do you wonder if you have what it takes to endure the journey? The Get Some Grit Podcast is here to help you!

Get Some Grit Podcast Episode #31 - 2016 Reflections Welcome back to Get Some Grit, the show where we learn the many ways that grit can serve artists as they press towards their goals. You can find us on iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, TuneIn, and iHeartRadio! No matter what you’re going through, GRIT is the armor that will protect you from the barrage of attacks that can stifle creativity and output! This week's show is built in two parts: Part One, reflections on past holiday seasons when I had the choice between giving up and persevering, and Part Two, how a late night "mind dump" into the microphone changed my perspective on the show, and helped me define what the show means to me, and how to move forward. I will be at Baylor University for a week long residency January 9-12 to do all sorts of trombone related things and record my first “on location” remote episode of Get Some Grit! Should be lots of fun. If you love the show, let someone know! Lots of ways to reach us. If you want to help, tell someone who could benefit from the content. If you want to do more, SUBSCRIBE! If you are Santa’s biggest helper and want to do even MORE, leave us an iTunes review! If you aren’t tech savvy and want some help with subscribing or leaving a review, email me at email@example.com and I will walk you through it. Take care of each other this holiday season. There will always be someone more fortunate, and someone less fortunate. Do what you can, where you are, with what you have. Thanks to Kevin MacLeod at incompetech.com for the use of "Thinking Music."
