Stuff I read

Seth Godin's blog is pretty much the only thing I read EVERY day. Check it out!

Arts Journal collects all the major arts-related stories in the news and compiles them into a very useful resource.

Barbara Conable's book on Body Mapping. Must read!

The War of Art by Steven Pressfield will help andy artist out of any self-inflicted jam.

Flow. Amazing book. Tough at times but well worth the effort.

Bold will hurt your brain. But in a good way. Resistance is futile. And dumb. 

Kevin Kelley is the guy who originated the "1,000 true fans" concept. This book offers a great analysis of what is to come. 

Stuck? Designing Your Life is one of my most-often recommended books to folks at a crossroads.

Business Model You is the other one.

Stuff I make my students buy and (hopefully) use

The Walter Beeler Method books are the ones I always used with young players. Loved them. Logical layout. Duets for student and teacher right in the book. Nice progression of exercises.
