Music is in your blood. It's one of the reasons you get out of bed in the morning. 

It has woven its way through your whole life and yet it's not all sunshine and rainbows.

  • The panic inducing, sweaty palmed performance anxiety.
  • The way your heart feels like it might beat its way out of your chest when you think about failing.
  • The pressure of auditions and exams.
  • The hard slog between periods of vibrant creativity, inspiration and motivation.


Allowing ourselves to be vulnerable, exposed and share our music with the world is TOUGH.

Many of us are perfectionists.
Many of teeter on the verge of giving up when we receive criticism.
We take it way too seriously and end up deflated when our hard work doesn't seem to be paying off. We forget that it's meant to be FUN.


Hey, I'm Kim and I'm a self appointed cheerleader for singers and musicians.

I wrote this book because I've experienced all this mess first hand and see my students and friends go through it on the regular.


The Moderately Tortured Artist lays it all out there. It's a permission slip for anyone who has ever felt alone, afraid, discouraged or lost as an artist.

If you want to get back to the real reason you started playing in the first place, lose the comparison and the self sabotage and enjoy the process again - let's do this.
