Preparing for Success published

I'm delighted that this book is now available from Amazon, or direct from the publisher (and there is currently a 10% discount for many people). It's a book that should be an invaluable resource for young musicians already studying and moving towards a professional career in music, or for young musicians considering the potential of going into music. It also offers a resource for those involved in teaching young musicians or giving careers advice. Parents of talented musicians may also find it useful. 

This is what some reviewers have said about it:

"... provides an exemplary tool that supports the development of a host of vital skills, both transferable to other walks of life and invaluable to a lifelong career in music. An outstanding achievement." Dr Claire Mera-Nelson, Director of Music, Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance

"... whether your passion is for classical, jazz or popular music, if you want to make a success of your career and your future, then this book is essential reading!" Paul Kirkham, Managing Director at the Institute of Contemporary Music Performance

"... a valuable contribution to an emerging body of literature that brings home the idea that it takes more than a focus on playing well to become a music professional in the twenty-first century." Professor Huib Schippers, Director, Queensland Conservatorium, Griffith University

In a nutshell

So why should you be interested in Learning in and through the Performing Arts?

The collaborative processes of the performing arts open a pandora's box of possibilities for artistic, personal and organizational development. They are subtle and multi-layered, embodied practices that can yield much more than what individuals bring to them, creatively and in terms of human exchange. My work is about continuing to develop these processes for the twenty-first century, so that artists can adapt to their changing contexts and enable their work to take root as creative entrepreneurs, and so that the processes of the arts can be shared and enhanced through exchange with other disciplines and across cultural contexts.
