Angela Beeching


This February, Angela will be in Atlanta to speak with high school students about their current or future careers in music.

Angela Beeching is a career consultant and author of the popular career guide Beyond Talent, Creating a Successful Career in Music. She received her doctorate in Cello Performance from Stony Brook University, studied in Paris, and taught cello at the college level for a few years before realizing her true calling. Today Angela runs career and entrepreneurship centers at Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music, Manhattan School of Music, and New England Conservatory, helping hundreds of musicians create their own paths to success. As a speaker, she has led workshops at the Eastman School of Music, and the Juilliard, Peabody, Colburn, and Oberlin Conservatories and presented at conferences for the National Association of Schools of Music, the National Conference on Keyboard Pedagogy, and the Association of Performing Arts Presenters.

“People often ask me what it takes to succeed. Beyond talent, it takes the courage to dream, the power to plan, and the will to get things done. It’s about more than your job or your career, it’s about the kind of life you want to live, and the person you want to become.”
