TEM131: Jeff Nytch Quotes (TEM Short)

This TEM Short features thoughts on my favorite quotes from Jeff Nytch in TEM130.

Quotes:

  • “The lesson that I try to share with my students about that is that no educational experience, no thing that you throw yourself into, is ever wasted. Even if it might seem at the time like it's a dead end, or you pursue something for a while, and you say, "Well, I guess that's not what I want to do." It still has intrinsic value, and you'll be amazed at how sometimes things can come back to serve your career in new ways, in ways you never would have guessed at the time."
  • "I would look at them and say, 'There's no way that I could ever be as good as they are as teachers' not realizing, of course, that they'd been doing it for 30 years.”
  • "I spent a lot of the book talking about things that musicians do already that are, in fact, entrepreneurial, to help dissolve this idea that these two things are mutually exclusive. So, I talk about customer focus, for instance. Well, that just means that we are trying to reach our audiences. Isn't that what we all say we want to do? Entrepreneurship gives us a vehicle for doing that.”
  • "One of the most important things that any entrepreneurial venture has to have is that there's something distinctive about it, something defines itself as being different from or better than whatever else is out there. And if that's at the core of thinking entrepreneurially, then for us as artists, that means our artistic voice, our whatever it is that I personally bring to the world that is uniquely mine, that's my most valuable asset. I don't want to compromise that. If I compromise that, that's not only quote-unquote 'selling out' or 'hurting myself artistically.' That's just not good business.”
  • "Entrepreneurs are constantly asking questions. Both, 'How can I do what I'm doing right now better or differently' But I think even before they get to that point, young musicians need to answer the question, what is it that they're really passionate about? And not just the music. What else are you passionate about?"
  • "Yeah, and that's entrepreneurship, really, at its core, because it's about identifying that opportunity that solves somebody else's problem."

TEM130: Dr. Jeff Nytch on Art and Entrepreneurship Co-Existing, Your Single Most Important Asset as an Artist and His Brand New Book, The Entrepreneurial Muse

Dr. Jeff Nytch is the Director of the Entrepreneurship Center for Music at the University of Colorado Boulder and the author of the brand new book, "The Entrepreneurial Muse: Inspiring Your Career in Classical Music".

What You'll Learn:

  • How Jeff had a curiosity about entrepreneurship from a very early age (including opening a “bank” to loan money to his siblings!)
  • Why no educational endeavor is every wasted and how sometimes two seemingly disparate interests can intersect later in life
  • What he learned from his six years as the Executive Director of the Pittsburgh New Music Ensemble
  • How he was drawn to higher ed when he developed a burning desire to teach college students everything he learned only through experience after leaving school
  • About Jeff’s brand new book, The Entrepreneurial Muse: Inspiring Your Career in Classical Music
  • How he addresses people who claim that entrepreneurship and true art can’t coexist by giving examples of successful artists who are doing both
  • Why your unique artistic voice is your single most valuable asset as an artist
  • Why the question “what else are you passionate about” is so important to being a successful entrepreneur
  • How Jeff coming to a major arts organization with a complete solution in hand to a problem led to a wonderful collaboration (and getting paid!)
