What People are Saying About the
"Dr. Greta Pope came along at a time when I was at the end of my ropes and needed intense career guidance and answers. Dr. Pope delivered in spades.
I first began with private voice lessons with Dr. Pope in her PrivateMusicStudio.net to deconstruct all of the bad habits I'd accumulated through years of vocal inactivity. In this respect Greta performed miracles. Miracles because not only is she an exceptionally skilled vocalist and musician herself, she has the gift of being able to expertly articulate the technique she's teaching in a way that the student can understand, visualize, and actualize. This is indeed a wondrous gift that I appreciate enormously. I've had precious few gifted teachers of this caliber and Greta ranks among the best of the best. My vocal skills have improved enormously as a result of her gifts.
After a period of time, Greta invited me to participate in her Online Huddle. I was very intrigued when she explained it was a meeting place for artists to mingle, collaborate, and exchange ideas. I thought, why not? We were in the middle of a pandemic and what else was I going to do on a Wednesday night? It's a decision I'll never regret.
It gave me a chance to meet other artists, performers, songwriters, producers, from other parts of the country and listen to their ideas, experiences, and the pitfalls in the entertainment industry they've experienced! The most important aspect of the Online Huddle was the wealth of knowledge Greta had about the business side of entertainment, things artists overlook that can make or break their careers. Managers, producers, lawyers, social media, record projects/contracts, setting goals, cutting costs w/o sacrificing quality, music publishing, licensing, etc. So many things to consider that artists often overlook.
The part that is most impressive is that Dr. Greta Pope really saw me ... I mean, she SAW me and understood me. Before one of the Online Huddle sessions, I usually arrived earlier than the rest, she gave me the idea for a Brand and a website that would tout my skills, magnify my presence on social media and provide a conduit to meet other talent. The idea was The Colorful Raconteur. Raconteur, in French, means the teller of amusing, funny stories. She also showed me how to feature my other interests, art, design, the culinary arts, style, travel, and of course the art of conversation, to create an interesting, fun, yet compelling website.
The rest is history. After about six months of research, development, talent recruitment and further sage advice from Greta, The Colorful Raconteur - storytelling in the key of Life made it's very successful debut Friday, 25 June this year!! It's a beautiful, innovative site that I absolutely love. It's given me focus, structure, and an avenue to creative fulfillment. In the process I'm making new friends and contacts and already have some tentative collaborative projects on the board.
Dr. Pope's Online Huddle is a fantastic opportunity and the most worthy investment that an artist can make in him/herself. It is money extremely well spent. Thank you Dr. Pope!! Kudos!
Isaac Conner, The Colorful Raconteur
