[BIRGIT TO WRITE AN INTRODUCTION]
In this episode I welcome Michelle Hessing ‘to the microphone’, who is a quiet business owner of a Branding Design & Printing company based in Newcastle, NSW and specialises in an integrated approach to creating and designing branded material and collateral to bring products and services into the marketplace. Designing for marketing, packaging, social media, presentations and documentation and printing – to promote and sell products and services locally and globally.
She took up learning to play piano at the age of 41 after years of thinking she wasn’t smart enough to learn to play. She is teaching piano as well but currently her piano studio is in mothballs while her branding and printing business is the main focus.
During our chat with cover her approach to capturing the ideas of her clients (talk about imagination ability!) and to how she currently works on a piano piece for her father, who sadly has passed away.
Michelle also shares her experience that led her almost to give up on her dream of playing the piano, how she found a way to make it happen and why she believes anyone can play an instrument.
She says: “I feel that every rough patch, big event, significant moments are attached to certain songs and sounds that trigger the memory surrounding that moment. Then for some reason I started to listen to music differently. Not just about remembering the words and shaking my thang and working out dance moves but really listening.”
Tune in and listen to the whole conversation – it is worth it!
