Hello! My name is Stella Joseph-Jarecki and in September of 2019, I decided to start an online music newsletter. The basic music facts about me: I studied classical singing at the Melbourne Conservatorium, and finished up at that same institution with an Honours year in Musicology, my other passion.
2019 marked the first year that I entered ‘adult’ life, without the protective layers of bubble-wrap of studying intensively at some kind of institution. This lack of structure was discomforting, a feeling exacerbated by working in a retail job which I really didn’t enjoy.
I really want this magazine to be a place which promotes lively discussions on the many pathways available to those with music training, be that a music degree from a university or instrumental training.
I want to provide a space for young musicians, music therapists, music educators, composers, and arts administrators. To me, the work done by music professionals off stage is as exciting and worthwhile as the fabulous work done by performers on stage. So if you are reading this and would like to spread the word about your musical project, whatever it may be, I would love to hear from you. Shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you so much for visiting Fever Pitch Magazine. I hope you read something here that excites you.
