Workshops

1. HONESTY AND INTEGRITY

Your mindset will be at the root of every decision you make. Exploring psychology and successful business practices will expand our perspective as musicians.

2. AUDITIONS: HOW TO PREPARE

Tips and tools on practicing and preparing for auditions.

3. HARNESSING YOUR NERVES FOR PERFORMANCE SUCCESS

It’s frustrating to work so hard on your technical and musical skills, only to falter during an audition or performance because your nerves are working against you instead of with you. We will explore human behavior when under stress and help you to find a source of inspiration that gives you the mindset you want.

Tom Hooten is a magnificent ensemble coach and inspiring and completely engaging speaker. As a guest at Northwestern, he coached a large ensemble work and lectured to students. His coaching was a revelation!

Everything was motivated by the music, with clear and thoughtful pedagogy. He musically invigorated all of us. Tom’s lectures are inspiring because of his honesty, artistry, thoughtfulness, experience, and perspective. It is refreshing to hear a top-level professional speak honestly about the depth of work that is behind his success.
