In a radically changing world, your music matters now more than ever. Career possibilities reach well beyond the proscenium stage, and there is no single path to musical success. Your greatest contributions will come when you are the most aligned and integrated version of yourself.

Announcing Career Coaching@Longy—now open to musicians at all career stages.
- Are you looking to (re)discover the “why” behind your music?

Coaching is a transformational process of self-discovery.
It is built on the belief that you are capable and whole and that the answers you seek are found within you. A skilled coach is an expert in asking powerful questions that help you identify values, raise awareness, identify roadblocks, shift lenses, explore options and organize priorities. Coaching will help you get from where you are now to where you’d like to be.
“I’m passionate about helping artists become the most integrated and whole version of themselves. I will meet you with empathy and compassion, fun and curiosity, and a deeply grounded belief that you are capable and whole.”

“ Ashley’s coaching is phenomenal and her spirit is joyful and contagious. She creates a space for her clients that is welcoming and truly inspirational. The session helped me immensely. I can’t recommend her enough! ”

“ Career coaching has helped not only show an artistic path, but also reinforce my motivation and passion. I believe career coaching will help finally bring out the artist I’ve always known I was but struggled to bring out. ”
“ I found Ashley Hall’s coaching sessions to be both inspirational and motivational! She helped me see my purpose and a way forward after I made a change in my performance career that left me feeling directionless and vulnerable. She was very organized and took notes that she forwarded me after our meetings, which have been great to look back on when I want to get thinking about the future again. Ashley Hall’s compassion and genuine joy that she finds through helping people find their purpose makes her a terrific coach! ”
