“I just made the necessary adjustments in my own finances in order to pay for Fabiana and to pay for her amazing program, and I’m so glad that I did…”
“What I’ve come to discover and what I’ve since found out about myself is that really we afford anything we want to afford and I just made the necessary adjustments in my own finances in order to pay for Fabiana and to pay for her amazing program and I’m so glad that I did…..Fabiana has been a great sense of support and a great sense of peace because it is a rollercoaster ride when you decide to break out and do something like this.”
Dr. Dennis Ritter-Bernardini
Author, Coach, Professor and Curriculum Developer, Director of Vocal Studies at Radford University
“Thanks to Fabiana’s approach to ‘let’s create something that is about all of you, all of your skillset,’ I am bravely ready to step into that world..”
“It was a crazy leap of faith…I thought ‘I’ll learn how to create an online business’…I did get all of that, in the 6 month program with Fabiana, but I got so much more. For me, the deep dive into the personal, inner work that Fabiana talked about was a huge takeaway I wasn’t expecting. Thanks to Fabiana’s approach to ‘let’s create something that is about all of you, all of your skillset,’ I am bravely ready to step into that world and say this is my authority, what I’m about, and I have something to offer, and I’m ready to serve and support musicians”
Dr. Cara Chowning
Collaborative Pianist and Vocal Coach at Ball State University
“After taking the program, I found a clearer vision for my future, felt ease in my everyday work, and created bigger dreams to aspire to… I have now tripled my rates compared to a year ago.”
“For me, the additional financial income really is a side benefit because what I’m mostly happy about as a result of the program is that now I really have a clear direction and control in my professional life. I’m no longer burdened by the things that were spinning out of control and trapping me in constantly working hard and not having room for too much else. I wake up every morning embracing the day, I’m excited about the new possibilities, I’m not afraid of any challenges, and it feels amazing to be this liberated, and that is something that money really cannot buy, so that was really my biggest takeaway from the program. “
Dr. Irina Pevzner
Executive Director and Piano Professor
at Charleston Academy of Music
“After working with Fabiana, I can say that I have a lot more clarity, I’m very centered with my vision, I’m very motivated, and I’m not stopping now”
“You’re not gonna go anywhere if you are sitting back or along the fence, If you are interested in moving forward and working with Fabiana, really be open-minded on what you are going to get on the opposite end… it took me a few days to really process: is this the investment I want to make? Is this what I really need? I’m a person who really values my time over finances, and that’s the question that I needed to ask myself. I asked myself is this what I really need, in the end, I did say yes to it, and I’m glad I did.”

“I feel like this is like the first time that I’ve been able to really articulate what has been in my heart for 37 years, about why I teach and then articulate not only why I teach, but various things about teaching.”
” In this program I learned how to teach my students go from a place of pain or dissatisfaction and, go into a place of success and know why this is important and have the students really connect with that. I think realizing how much more I have yet to give and to offer people was great. I went through the exercise of why I teach or why I do what I do.
I have more ideas, more inspiration. I never, ever want to go back to where I was before. I knew I could probably take what I got from the program and still be in a better place than I was last year but the question that came through my mind was how much farther I could be if I took the class in six months or a year, then I would be if I was on my own. “
Nationally Certified Music Teacher, Vocal music accompanist for William Chrisman High School, and owner of Hemdah Piano Studio
” I wanted to embrace the different aspects of myself rather than keeping them separate, which is what I had done for basically all my life. “
” I knew that I had a lot to offer people, but I wasn’t sure how to turn that into a business necessarily and how to tie music in with that business. The more that I dug deeply into Fabiana’s program, the more I realized that that coaching actually goes so well with music and that that could be something. I’m the one putting the limits on that opportunity if I want it to be an opportunity. I think anything feels possible if I really want it. I think one of the big things that has changed for me is that I was able to start a business. Now that I’ve completed the program, I have literally the entire blueprint of what I have done up to this point. It’s an amazing perspective to be able to look and think, wow, I did all that in just a short timeframe. “

“She understood things about me that I didn’t even know about myself..”
“Fabiana understands so many elements of every aspect of our lives as musicians, to the point that she understood things about me that I didn’t even know about myself. Since working with Fabiana I’ve learned so much about the nuts and bolts of being an entrepreneurial musician… I learned how to find my purpose, and my “why”, and that has been everything that I needed to define myself as a musician moving forward…”
Pianist, Coach, and Piano Professor
“I am so excited for the direction I am heading with my business!”
“I have experienced such change in the MPU program, that the only way I have to move is forward. Fabiana has shown me a new model for teaching and running my business that I didn’t know existed. Even though I’m in the developing stages of my business, she continues to propel me in the right direction.
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Fabiana and the MPU program! Fabiana has blown me away with the content for this program and I am so excited for the direction I am heading with my business! I have made great strides in my own personal transformation that I didn’t expect. This program is life-changing if you are willing to do the work. Fabiana is the real deal and her authenticity is evident in how she teaches, coaches, performs, and interacts individually and with a group. ”
Pianist and Nationally Certified Teacher of Music, President of Pensacola Music Teachers Associatio
“Fabiana’s fabulous at seeing you, and your particular situation, and speaking wisdom to that, and helping you see a side of yourself that is not a side you’ve seen or willing to acknowledge.”
“Fabiana’s really great at creating a space that feels safe for you to dig deep and a community that is engaging and supportive , and that’s really important when we are challenging ourselves to stretch into new spaces. She’s fabulous at seeing you, and your particular situation, and speaking wisdom to that, and helping you see a side of yourself that is not a side you’ve seen or willing to acknowledge.
Since then it’s as if all that deep work was roots going down and now the bud can come up and the plant can sprout and it can come into fruition. It’s been fun to see how my voice has blossomed, and I have ideas for what I want to do, and I’m starting to implement them, and I don’t think that would have been possible without all that deep internal work, and seeing the possibilities, because this was a huge mental shift for me from being an academic to seeing myself as an academic and all kinds of other things…”

“I am a better educator, entrepreneur, and life-long learner because of this amazing coaching program with Fabiana!”
“I knew that I needed to expand my personal and professional horizons in a new way, but wasn’t sure how. Working with Fabiana Claure as a coach and within the MPU program of support was exactly what I needed. I discovered the clarity, encouragement and engagement I was searching for, along with the camaraderie and mentoring this type of ongoing journey requires.
Looking at my career and life through a new lens required careful direction, nurturing and sometimes a big push into unknown experiences. If you need a one-stop shop to pull together your superpowers, learn more about who you are, what you want to give to the world and have consistent support while accomplishing all – look no further than Fabiana Claure and her MPU program. I am a better educator, entrepreneur, and life-long learner because of this amazing coaching program with Fabiana! If you are considering working with her, do not hesitate! I’m forever changed in the best way possible!”
Director of Music Business at Western Illinois University, Personal Harmony Coach
“Reality, creativity, and persistence, is the Fabiana formula that gets you to where you want to go…”
“Rarely when we start are we thinking of how we’re going to reconcile that vision of an artist with financial reality. One of the most important things that Dr. Claure starts is breaking down what the reality of what our industry is: how we make money, what streams of income there are, what opportunities there are, what the data says about who is or isn’t successful. First of all, understanding what that is, and then being able to reconcile some of our more personal needs into that reality….however, while that reality might be jarring to a musician, the next step is developing that sense of creativity.”

“We have been profitable since our first month in business…”
“Fabiana has supported me in multiple entrepreneurial ventures, including opening a music store and expanding an existing arts nonprofit. Through Fabiana’s eyes, I’ve learned to see opportunities instead of hurdles.
Fabiana has been someone I go to for support, advice, or a push when I’m feeling bogged down by everything that needs to get done.
While I’ve learned many things from working with Fabiana, my biggest takeaway is to just do it. Just take action. Just start somewhere. In addition to helping me with my own doubts, Fabiana provided specific tools and resources to ideate, plan, and stay focused on my endeavors. She truly leads by example, and I continue to be amazed by how much she achieves because of her “can do” spirit and optimism.
Owning and operating a music store with my husband and repair specialist, Tony Barrette, has been an exciting journey. We have been profitable since our first month in business and have grown our inventory asset to five times its original value in just two years. Recently, I was hired at the Dallas Symphony as the Director of Education. I will always be grateful to Fabiana for helping me get to where I am today!”

“I still utilize some of Fabiana’s techniques and methods”
“Before I started working with Fabiana I was interested in becoming more entrepreneurial but had not fully embraced the practice as a lifestyle. After studying with her, I developed far better insight into the implementation of music entrepreneurship into my professional career and my business.
I now serve as Assistant Professor of Arts Management & Entrepreneurship at Baldwin Wallace University, where I still utilize some of Fabiana’s techniques and methods from my time as her student as well as in the day to day operations of my business.”
Dr. Sean Murphy
Saxophonist/Entrepreneur, Assistant Professor of Arts Management and Entrepreneurship Baldwin Wallace University
“She also gave me the courage to not be afraid, anymore, of pursuing a career in music.”
“I want to thank Professor Fabiana Claure for helping me finish my website and for helping me build my music career. I took Professor Claure’s Music Entrepreneurship and Career Development class and she helped me with my vision of building a music school for children by helping me develop a 15-page business plan (with powerpoint slides that illustrate the plan) to pitch to potential investors after graduation.
She also gave me the courage to not be afraid, anymore, of pursuing a career in music.”
“She pushes to bring the absolute best in you…”
“My biggest shift when it came to meeting and being mentored by Fabiana was that she helped me believe in stepping into my big ideas. The goals that scare me because of their seeming weight and long-distance are the ones that she followed with me into detailed points. In every session of putting together a detailed and workable business plan, Fabiana pushed me beyond my comfort zone. She wouldn’t let me take any easy ways out, but questioned my motive and intention behind every decision I made along my path. This inspired a completely fresh way of thinking for me.
After enough time of coming into our sessions, it became such a wonderful impulse to push for my most excellent, most clarified ideas. It also became clear how much I needed to be intentional about every detail relating to my business/artistry – from how I present myself, to how I connect and interact, to the product/s I deliver.
Fabiana believes that each person has the ability to bring wealth to the world in way of their personal gifts, ideas and ability. She pushes to bring out the absolute best in you and helps you find ways to plan your footsteps along your own yellow brick road toward your goals. I miss every session, and would recommend her mentorship to the highest degree. She is a phenomenal, inspiring and wonderful person, musician, teacher and mentor and will help you transform the way you envision your own goals as well as bring to light the incredible capacity for brilliance that exists if you are brave enough to look a little further.”

“With Dr. Claure’s assistance, I was able to adjust and fine-tune in ways I wasn’t able to do on my own.”
“Before working with Dr. Claure, I knew that I had a good idea but wasn’t sure how to make my idea into a full-blown business. My biggest fear was wasting time and money on a business that wouldn’t be successful. I was struggling with how to put it all together.
I already have a small business that is doing well but I built that without a focused plan, just an idea, hope and passion. I now have something to execute to and keep me focused and on track. I was able to see the holes in my plan.
With Dr. Claure’s assistance I was able to adjust and fine-tune in ways I wasn’t able to do on my own. Right now I am in the building process with my technology, it will be a while before I can launch, but I know when my online program is ready, I will be ready to sell it and market it successfully.
“The experience was unparalleled…”
“I was a part of the inaugural class of students to take Dr. Claure’s music entrepreneurship courses at UNT. My time in Dr. Claure’s courses was positive and helpful, equipping me with additional tools to grow and sharpen my business acumen as a musical entrepreneur. The experience was unparalleled in that it was not just an entrepreneurship course, but one specifically geared towards me as both a singer-songwriter and music therapist running an arts-based health and wellness business.”
Other quotes about Fabiana
“I would be thrilled for our College of Music to receive such an impressive, national recognition under any circumstance. That Dr. Claure achieved this level of national notoriety so quickly is truly remarkable,” said Dean John Richmond. “We are all thrilled for her and for the future of this vitally important program.”

“I want to thank you for joining us to present yesterday. You took them out of their comfort zones and expanded their minds to what it really takes to turn their “dream project” into a revenue-generating business. Thanks for your energy, your individual feedback to the students, and your thought and care in preparing this topic. I really appreciate it.”
Monique Mead, Director of Music Entrepreneurship, Carnegie Mellon University.
“Fabiana Claure’s superb video presentation entitled “Women as Musician Entrepreneurs” proved to be a fascinating and inspiring hour for the piano majors at SMU’s Meadows School of the Arts!
Dr. Claure, herself a model of the 21st c musician-entrepreneur, offered highlights from the lives of three extraordinary female pianist-composers and demonstrated how they were able to actively display their talent and individuality to world. Dr. Claure also beautifully performed virtuosic compositions by each of these amazing women: F. Mendelssohn, Clara Schumann, and T. Carreño. A highly recommended presentation!”
Dr. Carol Leone
Chair of Piano Studies and Professor of Piano, SMU Meadows School of the Arts
“Dr. Claure’s presentation was highly interactive and provided actionable information to our students at UTSA. The students were very engaged and came out of Dr. Claure’s talk equipped to think creatively on how they can launch a truly unique music-related venture. For the last several years I have had the pleasure of having Dr. Fabiana Claure as a professional colleague. We have often met at conference gatherings such the Music Entertainment and Industry Educator Association (MEIEA) and the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM). I attended several of Dr. Claure’s presentations at both events and was amazed by her eloquence, mastery of the content she covered, and her ability to establish a true connection with her audience. I am continually impressed with Dr. Claure’s dedication to her profession, to the promotion of education and research in our field and her commitment to her students in the Music Business and Entrepreneurship program at University of North Texas (UNT).“

“Thank you for speaking to PMTA. I know that teachers/musicians are in different places in their lives professionally and personally and sometimes they just need a different perspective on how to look at their life. I specifically chose you because of your unique position as a pianist and entrepreneur and breaking that mold of what is an ideal career path. We often get stuck in what the ideal success is and as you said, it is up to us to create what our own success looks like, not anybody else’s idea of success. Sometimes we have to get over our own fear of what is holding us back and make the daily goals that mean the most to us in order to make a difference in our lives and in others. On the day that you were presenting I heard on the radio that morning that you are the best project to work on, so make the most of it. I thought it was a fitting sentiment for the focus of the day. Thank you again for speaking with PMTA, and I hope it will garner success for not only you, but also the members of PMTA.“
“This is such good stuff going on here at UNT! Happy that our students can take advantage of these opportunities to develop their dreams and goals into PLANS for when they leave school. Fabiana Claure is doing wonderful work!”
