Student Voice: Erin Paton

Feb. 17, 2011

My name is Erin Paton and I am currently a freshman studying music education and jazz studies here at CU Boulder. I play saxophone and love to compose – it’s how I “roll,” so to speak. Apart from that, I am also an entrepreneur. Over the past summer, while talking with my brother who is also in the music business, I thought of an idea that would send me off on an entrepreneurial adventure – the Tūturu Jazz Orchestra.

Lisa Canning - No more starving artists

Feb. 4, 2011

I first met Lisa Canning a little over a year ago at the first-ever conference on music entrepreneurship in higher ed, sponsored by the College Music Society. When, during our very first conversation, I learned that she had studied clarinet at Northwestern University — a leading conservatory preparing musicians for orchestral performing jobs — and that she had discovered there that playing in an orchestra was not her calling, I felt an immediate bond.
