LISTEN ON –
This week on the podcast, we’re featuring Trevor Jones, bassist and founder of the Scholarship Roadmap. Trevor and I met when he interviewed me for a podcast episode, and I thought what he was up to was really cool, so I wanted to return the favor. Getting to know him over the course of this episode was fascinating. He has so much to impart, but here are a few takeaways:
One Size Doesn’t Fit All
I’m so impressed by Trevor’s desire to work with students to help them match them with a school that will fit their needs and help them reach their goals. It’s important to realize that we’re all different. As a result, not every teacher will fit with every student. Having someone like Trevor out there to meet students (and their parents!) where they are and help explain the process of auditioning and selecting the right school is amazing.
You Have A Lot To Offer
Part of what Trevor is able to do with students is to help them put together their musical profile – a highlight of the accomplishments they have had that will help give them the best chance to been seen by the schools they are hoping to attend. Many students that want to go into non-musical disciplines can still apply for music scholarships to be able to continue playing their instrument in college, even if they don’t want to play professionally.
Follow What You’re Passionate About
Trevor’s career has seemed to bounce from place to place – in school he wanted to audition for professional orchestras and now he’s playing with a musical theater pit and helping students to find the best school for them. When I asked what he felt was guiding him from place to place he simply said: his passion. He did things he was passionate about and followed that through his life. At this stage in my life, I couldn’t agree more.
I hope you enjoyed this episode with Trevor! If you wouldn’t mind leaving a rating and a review on iTunes, I would really appreciate it. Don’t forget to share on social media so others can find it and enjoy it themselves! Thank you so much for listening. Stay strong, be kind to yourself, and never stop growing!
Until next time,
