Gerald Klickstein

I'm an internationally known music educator, career coach, and consultant. I'm also the author of the celebrated book The Musician's Way (Oxford, 2009; 14th printing, 2018) and publisher of the website Check out my articles about practice, performance, career-building, collaboration, and more at The Musician's Way Blog.

I also publish a free, info-packed newsletter and network on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

From 2012-2016, I was Founder and Director of the Music Entrepreneurship and Career Center at the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore. Previously, from 1992-2012, I was a member of the artist-faculty at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. I put down the violin years ago to focus on my guitar playing, but I hold a passion for all things strings.

I present workshops for musicians and teachers throughout the US as well as overseas and coach violinists and all performers in ways to boost their musicianship and careers, prepare for auditions, overcome performance anxiety, and attain professional success.

Contact me for information about coaching via Skype.
