Ariane CapToday we launch a special series. I’m talking with former guests of the podcast to do deep dives on the industry, what’s happening during these wild times and where we see it going. We talk about our need to be increasingly savvy about branding and community building, how we can elevate live streaming, that platforms for online learning will be critical, recording at home and I also share my thoughts on how the arc of a music career is longer than it used to be.

Our guest today is Ariane Cap from episode 141. Ariane is an accomplished musician, touring artist, online educator, and has worked with some of the greats. In our first interview we talked about the development of her online courses, self-publishing music, and being consistent with content creation.
