CREATE YOUR CAREER!
A GUIDE FOR 21ST CENTURY ENTREPRENEURIAL MUSICIANS
QUICK Raise your hand if you any of these things speak to you on a spiritual level:
🎹 You are currently in music school and are terrified af about being able to find a music job when you graduate...
🎺 You are constantly filled with self-doubt wondering if you are even good enough to make it in the music industry...
🎻 It gives you anxiety when you wonder wtf you are supposed to do if you don't land an orchestra job but there's no way you're willing to give up on your dream...
🎤 You are currently working at a normal 9-5 job feeling like you're wasting your potential and throwing away your dreams but don't know how to get out....
I have been through all of these.
And I came out on the other side...
Let me tell you a little story...
After completing my degrees, I struggled to maintain a musical life while working full-time to support myself. I came home almost every night so exhausted that I had no energy left to practice. Going from my entire life being consumed by music for the past fifteen years to absolutely nothing felt like being hit by a train! I spent more lunch breaks than I can count crying in a bathroom wondering if I made the right choices for my life and if I was even good enough. As I watched colleague after colleague around me leave the music industry to pursue a different career path, giving up on their dreams, I couldn’t help but wonder if that’s where my path would lead as well.
Thankfully, I was able to adjust my mindset to push through. I finally decided it was time to take things into my own hands and CREATE the life I wanted.
I decided to utilize my knowledge of branding, social media, & marketing that I had gained working for multi-million dollar companies. I dedicated myself to creating a visually beautiful online representation of myself and began using the business skills and management techniques I had been honing for the past 10 years. The same skills and techniques I used to run a successful woodwind quintet where I was awarded grants, commissioned new music, put together a tour, and was offered a recording contract with NAXOS.
And you bet things started happening, and fast!
Within 6 months,
I was being offered gigs.
I built up a full teaching schedule.
I landed my own clients as a social media and branding consultant.
I CREATED my dream career where I get to do what I love every single day!
I want to help you create YOUR dream career, too!

"If you are ever wondering when the right time is to take Nicole Riccardo's Create Your Career course, the answer is: right now. There was a long time where I had put my own dreams aside because I was skeptic and afraid that I could not make a sustainable living as a freelancing Flutist, Social Media Manager, and Front End Web Designer. After taking this course I felt so inspired and finally felt like I had the tools I needed to have a profitable career in the classical music world. Ever since I connected with Nicole, she has been nothing but supportive, encouraging, and has taken the time to help me turn my dream into a huge part of my income! Nicole is incredibly skilled at honing in on what you need in order to be successful and believes in you so much that you eventually believe in you, too. While I do wish I had learned these skills in college, I am so happy this course exists and recommend it to everyone who is done settling and is ready to make their dream job a reality!"
