The Musician's Soul
A must-read for all music educators!
James Jordan's The Musician's Soul starts all musicians on a journey to that higher plane. Jordan offers words of wisdom and encouragement based on his own journey as a conductor, yet these writings are pertinent to all musicians, perhaps to any creative being.
Filled with inspiring, thought-provoking quotations, life experiences, and ideas, this book will encourage you to explore your inner self by creating openness and vulnerability, finding your center, and discovering the importance of solitude as well as community.
