Dawn Boudreau on New Beginnings, Dark Nights of the Soul, and the Courage to Change


Sep 27 2023 • 1 hr 12 mins

Alex and Karen reunite with an old friend from university, Dawn Boudreau, to discuss her life as a musician and music teacher. Dawn gets candid about her experience living an “inverted life”, and what it took to go back to school at age 40 after raising a family. They get into ageism in music; how to keep evolving one’s creativity; and have a lovely chat all about Dawn’s garden and her line of home-grown botanical products.
