In this episode, I'm chatting with singer, songwriter, pianist, Leila Milki. Leila began taking classical piano lessons at just four years of age. She pursued her studies under the practical and theoretical curriculum of the Royal Conservatory of Music. We talk a little bit about practical and theoretical study as they pertain to music, and why both are so valuable.  Leila's had some of the most fascinating jobs doing what she loves... making music. If there are any musicians reading this who are looking for ways to make a living playing music, give this episode a listen! She's also working on completing her first album, and funded it by doing a month long Kickstarter campaign. Leila tells us about the preparation and execution of the campaign, what really got people motivated to contribute, and tells us which social media outlet helped her the most during the process.

Leila has a strong connection to her Lebanese heritage, and she talks about how that love informs her music. She performs in English, Arabic, French, and Spanish. And, at the end of the show, Leila sits down at the piano and treats us to a piece from her upcoming album, sung in two of the afore mentioned languages. Listen to find out which two! 

So, let's get to it! Here's my chat with Leila Milki.
