Two new blogs to check out-
The Musician's Way blog by Gerald Klickstein, Guitarist, author, educator, Professor of Music at University of North Carolina School of the Arts. He blogs about the helpful topics from his book, The Musician’s Way: A Guide to Practice, Performance, and Wellness (Oxford, 2009).
He "explores issues of music practice and performance, creativity, music careers, collaboration, wellness, and the myriad aspects of living a musician’s life." Definitely worth checking out.
Third Stream Music Education Third-Stream is "about music education, usually about student performing ensembles, and specifically about bringing cutting-edge modernism to the high school wind ensemble rehearsal."
"Third-Stream is written by Cary Stewart. Cary is the Director of Bands and Middle School Fine Arts Team Leader at a medium-sized American international school in Asia."
Good stuff. I particularly like his post on Yoga of Wind Orchestra. Sounds like something I would write. All musicians should learn yoga and Alexander Technique. I vote yes.
