Rhea March’s career in the music industry spans 30 years as a performer, consultant, contractor, educator, administrator, radio host, artist consultant and artist development specialist.
She partners with the Edmonton and Canmore Folk Music Festivals each year to launch careers by providing Alberta songwriters with the game changing opportunity of performing at both prestigious festivals. The artists receive coaching in live performance, confidence, audience engagement, professionalism, goal setting and career planning.
For 13 years Rhea has been the warm and welcoming host of The Sunday Song Stage in Edmonton. Currently running from Mill Creek Cafe, the all-ages weekly event provides support and community building for Edmonton’s musicians.
Rhea’s commitment to providing a platform to musicians is the inspiration behind her weekly campus radio show, ‘It Takes a Village’ on CJSR 88.5 FM. Starting in 2013, the one-hour weekly series features music, interviews, live performances, stories about the biz and demonstrates how it truly does take a village to raise a songwriter. This year marks her 6th year of teaching ‘Managing in the Music Industry’ as a sessional instructor at MacEwan University. She also conducts yearly residences at The Banff Centre and facilitates live performance workshops throughout Alberta.
