"The Impact of Collegiate Performing Arts Programs on Individuality and Authenticity"

Hey there! I'm Gregory Omar Osborne, a talent manager who works with aspiring artists to help them define their brand and reach their full potential.

You may have heard that collegiate performing arts programs have become all the rage, as more and more students want to turn their love of the arts into a career. And, yeah, these programs are great for providing structure and hands-on experience in the field, but here's the thing - they can also have a negative impact on an aspiring artist's individuality and authenticity.

Graduating from a performing arts program can sometimes lead to a level of conformity in the industry, as students who have gone through the same curriculum and been taught by the same faculty may develop similar styles and techniques. This can result in a lack of diversity in the industry, and in some cases, a reduction in individual expression. In today's trend-focused culture, it can be challenging for artists to define themselves and maintain their individuality. I often see young artists struggling to find their voice and establish

a unique identity in an industry that is constantly evolving and changing. The challenge is compounded by the fact that many performing arts collegiate programs prioritize technical training and education over the promotion of individuality and self-expression. This is why it is important for collegiate programs to encourage and educate students on the importance of self-discovery and individual expression.

With this in mind, I petition collegiate performing arts programs to incorporate classes and workshops that focus on individuality. These classes should provide students with the tools and resources they need to understand themselves, their artistic vision, and how to bring that vision to life. By teaching students the importance of individuality and authenticity, we can help them to break away from the trend-culture and maintain their unique qualities as artists.

To help individuals further their understanding of individuality and authenticity, I highly recommend checking out my book "Becoming You: A Household Name." This comprehensive guidebook is a personal creation of mine, and I share my wealth of knowledge and experience in the industry to help readers define their brand and become a household name. The book offers a unique blend of practical tips and real-life examples that will inspire and guide individuals towards their goals. It's not just about fame, but about authenticity and staying true to oneself.

In conjunction with the book, I also offer a "Becoming You" workshop. This workshop provides individuals with an in-depth understanding of the concepts discussed in the book and allows them to delve deeper into the material and apply it to their own journey. Whether you're an aspiring artist, entrepreneur, or anyone with a dream, "Becoming You: A Household Name" and the accompanying workshop are your ultimate companions on the journey to success.

In conclusion, collegiate performing arts programs have the potential to impact the individuality and authenticity of aspiring artists. However, by incorporating classes and workshops that focus on individuality, we can help to mitigate these effects and encourage students to maintain their unique qualities and continue to push the boundaries of what is possible in the performing arts.
