373: Rebecca Lawrence on the state of women in the bass world and life as a music student

373: Rebecca Lawrence on the state of women in the bass world and life as a music student

What's it like being a double bass student these days... and what's it like being a female bass student? These are two topics that should have come up a lot sooner on the podcast. Even though I've put out nearly 400 podcast episodes at this point, I've only had students on the show once before. During the 2017 International Society of Bassists Convention, I had the chance to meet Rebecca Lawrence.  Rebecca is entering her senior year at the University of Southern California and is studying with David Allen Moore. A few weeks after the convention, I had the chance to sit down and chat with her about her experiences as a bass student, where she sees herself going professionally, challenges and setbacks, and much more. Our story today is in three parts: Part 1 - the state of women in the bass world Part 2 - undergraduate life - surprises, evolutions, and challenges Part 3 - looking into the future - how Rebecca's thinking has evolved during her time at USC For more on the state of women
