A husband and father of two boys, Keith is making waves as a radically honest mentor to his students, sharing what its truly like to face the obstacles that all adults must face while creating an artistic and purposeful life. Keith shares his experiences of dealing with depression, anxiety, and hardships in graduate school while maintaining a career as an oboe teacher and reed maker. He puts a new spin on the idea of following your strengths (rather than your skills) and how to use those strengths to create your own narrative. If you have ever experienced hardships and confusion, particularly during your music education and thereafter, this episode is for you! Keith's vulnerability and willingness to open up about both the inner and exterior obstacles as an adult musician is what makes this conversation truly one of a kind.
