Welcome to Mindful Music Pedagogy's Musician Interview Series. This episode is the second in a three-part interview series with singer and educator Sarah Tannehill Anderson. Sarah is a Kansas City-based musician, and the founder of raiseyourvoicekc.com. In this episode, we discuss the beginning of Sarah’s vocal education and career, unique challenges singers face, the importance of being vulnerable and cultivating vulnerability in our students, channeling emotions and dealing with difficult life circumstances with and through music, and the drama of being a professional musician and opera singer. One of Sarah’s and my favorite podcasts, Food Heals Podcast, gets a mention, as does the incomparable Christine Goerke. If you haven’t listened to Part One, you can do that now to get caught up.
