There’s a new book out by University of North Carolina School of the Arts professor Gerald Klickstein designed to help musicians develop core skills needed for a career in music. Titled The Musician’s Way, this book covers topics like the following (from the companion website for the book):
- Enhance practice and performance skills
- Expand musical knowledge
- Overcome performance anxiety
- Foster creativity
- Collaborate amicably
- Build music careers
- Boost health and prevent music-related injuries
- Become productive artists
This book looks like a nice complement to David Cutler’s The Savvy Musician, a new book designed to help musicians build entrepreneurial skills that we featured in a recent podcast. We also chatted recently about similar topics with James Knabe, a Chicago-area musician who specializes in developing websites for musicians.
