I never know what to call the musicians and performers who work with me in my mentorships and online courses.

KELLER-Jennifer-InStudio-HYM-21-wAre they ‘clients?’  Are they ‘students?’  Mentorees? Colleagues-with-questions?

So I guess this is a question for you linguistically-minded people out there …

When they’re enrolled in one of my online courses (like “Hip Harp Toolkit”  that’s launching right now or “Baroque Flamenco Bootcamp“) ‘student’ feels right, whether they’re professionals developing new skills or amateurs just looking for a fun learning experience.

But when they’re in my intensive, highly personalized 6-month program “Harness Your Muse, ”  I’m not so much teaching them as guiding them to develop their own shows that truly express their unique artistic vision.

In that case I become more like a director, or artistic coach.

And what does that make THEM in relation to me? Coachees?  Directorees?  Clients?

So, seriously – I’m asking – what’s the word to describe YOU if you’re working with someone to develop your own artistic voice?  In that situation, what would you feel proud to describe yourself as?  What word should I use when I describe you?

Honestly, I really want to know. So please add your opinion in the comments below.
