Welcome to Mindful Music Pedagogy’s Musician Interview Series. This episode is the first in a three-part interview with singer and educator Sarah Tannehill Anderson. Sarah is a Kansas City-based musician, and the founder of raiseyourvoicekc.com. In this first episode, we talk about Sarah’s musical beginnings, her recent venture (Raise Your Voice KC), developing a healthy mindset while practicing, learning to cultivate that same mindset in our students, perfectionism, listening to our own inner voice as musicians, and the importance of surrounding ourselves with mindful people. We recorded this as one cohesive conversation which has been divided up into three parts, so stayed tuned for Parts 2 and 3!
