James Jordan - GIA Publications
The Musician's Soul starts all musicians on a journey to the higher plane of artistic self-expression and soulful spirituality. Words of wisdom are based on Jordan's own journey as a conductor, yet these writings are pertinent to all musicians. Filled with 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 both solitude and community. The cassette contains seven meditations on particular themes and correlates with the book. Look beyond the mechanics of technique to the soul of music and create your own inspired voice!
