I help musicians develop their authentic sound and creative business mindset.


I’m Dawson White, a performing violist and devoted teacher with an entrepreneurial spirit. I love enabling positive change in audiences/students and focus on developing authentic sound and a creative business mindset for artists. I perform with the Houston Grand Opera and Ballet orchestras and teach at the University of St. Thomas. See my inspiration and mission or inquire about leveling up your artistry!
