Parlour Room Sessions – Author Amy Nathan

Saturday February 23 @ 5:00 pm


Amy Nathan shares excerpts and ideas from her 2018 book, Making Time for Making Music: How to Bring Music into Your Busy Life. Hailed by Kirkus Reviews as an “Inspirational guide,” Nathan’s work shows shows the many ways there are for people who aren’t professional musicians to learn and make music at every stage of their lives. The first book of its kind, it is filled with real-life success stories from more than 350 adults from the US, Canada, and the UK, who manage to find ways to fit music-making into their jam-packed schedules. By day, they may be engineers, lawyers, school teachers,  economists, doctors, statisticians, consultants, software developers, or hairstylists, but after hours (or as retirement provides more time) they are instrumental musicians, composers, singers, and conductors – adding to their lives the richness and joy that music gives. Nathan shares their unique paths and their suggestions for handling practice issues and performance anxiety, establishing collegial relationships with teachers, finding ensembles to join and opportunities for performing.


Parlour room (n), from French parler (to talk or speak) – a room for conversation, debate, or receiving an audience

Classical music has traditionally been an intimate experience, a gathering of friends as a way to pass an evening filled with laughter, entertaining stories, and captivating sounds. We welcome you into our parlour room at the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music to learn about new and classic works and indulge in the intimacy of great music making. Bring your curiosity!

All concerts begin at 5pm and include a complimentary reception.
