ISBN: 9781592001712

Mentoring in the Ensemble Arts: Helping Others Find Their Voice - Tim Sharp
ISBN: 9781622770519
Publication Date: 2013-09-01
Examining the mentor-protege dynamic and its critical impact on the lives of ensembles and their conductors, author Tim Sharp draws from research, his own experience as a choir conductor, mentor, and protege, and his travels as the executive director of the American Choral Directors Association in this study. The result is a profound portrait of this important, but rarely discussed, aspect of a conductor's life. The book reinforces a conductor's own desire to develop his or her own personal learning community to continually strive for excellence by being a protege to other leaders. The overarching goal of this consideration is to help the conductor realize the full potential of the mentor-protege relationship and to assist both mentor and protege in achieving the best possible benefits of these relationships. The result, Sharp argues, will be better music making and more fulfilled human beings for generations to come.

Music Production For Producers, Composers, Arrangers, and Students (2 - Michael Zager
ISBN: 9780810882010
Publication Date: 2011-11-10
The guidance of a skilled music producer will always be a key factor in producing a great recording. In that sense, as Michael Zager points out in his second edition of Music Production: For Producers, Composer, Arrangers, and Students, the job of a music producer is analogous to that of a film director, polishing work product to its finest sheen. And this is no small matter in an age when the recording industry is undergoing its most radical change in over half a century. Although innate talent and experience are key elements in the success of any music producer, Music Production serves as a roadmap for navigating the continuous changes in the music industry and music production technologies. From dissecting compositions to understanding studio technologies, from coaching vocalists to arranging and orchestration, from musicianship to marketing, advertising to promotion, Music Production takes readers on a whirlwind tour of the world of music production, letting readers keep pace with this rapidly changing profession. The focus of the second edition is on such topics as the expanded role of music supervisors, the introduction of new production techniques, and the inclusion of new terms in music industry contracts. Including new interviews with eminent industry professionals, Music Production is the ideal handbook for the aspiring music production student and music professional.

Performing Life : A Singer's Guide to Survival - Sharon Mabry
ISBN: 9780810884083
Publication Date: 2012-08-07
The Performing Life: A Singer's Guide to Survival is the first-hand account of the 35-year career of singer, music professor, and recording artist Sharon Mabry, who draws on personal experience to explore how professional singers survive in the face of personal and professional pressures, exorbitant expectations, illness, and the demands of their public. She details the factors that can change the course of a particular performance or an entire career. Mabry offers sage advice for how singers can bolster themselves mentally, physically, and emotionally in order to maintain their powers of performance. Divided into two parts The Performing Life focuses first on such basics as the need for extensive preparation, discovering your performance niche, acquiring mentors, determining your "maintenance level," finding a strong support system, learning how and what to organize, and discovering how to groom body and mind. In the second half, Mabry draws on her wealth of personal stories to dig more deeply into such seemingly mundane but absolutely critical matters as personal health (illness, food allergies, insomnia), logistical challenges presented by venue location and performance dynamics, and the difficulties off-stage presented by the recording studio. In all instances, Mabry illustrates how perseverance, organization, attention to detail, excellent training, strong planning, a resilient support system, and a good sense of humor can lead to a successful and satisfying career during even the most difficult times.

Supernatural Strategies for Making a Rock 'n' Roll Group - Ian F. Svenonius
ISBN: 9781617751301
Publication Date: 2013-01-01
"Proscriptive how-to advice ranges over a wide number of subjects (e.g., sex, band photos, etc.) and can be seen both as skewering the cultural idolatry associated with rock and as genuine counsel. Verdict: Svenonius's sociopolitical analysis of rock and roll is intellectually interesting, as when he posits that the genre was 'brought about by the industrial revolution, the harnessing of electricity, and the miscegenation of various poor, exploited, and indentured cultures in the USA.'"- Library Journal So much of the allure here is in watching Svenonius skirt absurdity. He's always seemed delighted by the fact that the profound and the preposterous can sound awfully alike, a realization that puts him in line with an avant-garde tradition that stretches back before rock 'n' roll crystallized this fact... Svenonius has the spirit of a long-gone punk past, but his book has more to tell us about rock's here-and-now than about its hereafter. Neither bourgeois nor prestigious, Supernatural Strategies may be the rare book by a rock musician to retain any power or threat." - Los Angeles Review of Books "Like its author, Supernatural Strategies is part tongue-in-cheek, part deadly serious - a satire of rock's consumerist origins but also a thoughtful treatise on what it means to devote yourself to a collective...Drawing from the wisdom of rock'n'roll's most famous ghosts, Svenonius' advice ranges from hilarious to cryptic to surprisingly useful." - Pitchfork "Svenonius has walked the walk. . . Even today-as the frontman of Chain & The Gang and the host of the online talk show Soft Focus-he remains cool, cryptic, and impeccably dressed, a mod magician with a trick always lurking up his tailored sleeve." - The Onion AV Club "If 'write what you know' is one of authorship's prime dictates, then Ian F. Svenonius seems uniquely qualified... Svenonius' contrarian, anti-establishment rhetoric is his greatest gift... Strategies plays to thesesame strengths by allowing him to run roughshod riot over hallowed ground he's already trod-and sometimes paved-more than a few times." - Baltimore City Paper Ian F. Svenonius's experience as an iconic underground rock musician - playing in such highly influential and revolutionary outfits as The Make-Up and The Nation of Ulysses - gives him special insight on techniques for not only starting but also surviving a rock 'n' roll group. Therefore, he's written an instructional guide, which doubles as a warning device, a philosophical text, an exercise in terror, an aerobics manual, and a coloring book.This volume features essays (and black-and-white illustrations) on everything the would-be star should know to get started, such as Sex, Drugs, Sound, Group Photo, The Van, and Manufacturing Nostalgia. Supernatural Strategies will serve as an indispensable guide for a new generation just aching to boogie."

The Singer's Ego : Finding Balance Between Music and Life - Lynn Eustis

From the psychological to the practical, the serious challenges and issues that can affect a singer s performance are explored in this groundbreaking book. Author Lynn Eustis, herself a professional signer and voice instructor, argues that the daily psychological conflicts that make up a singer s world can have profound implications for both the singer and the teacher.

Understanding the Classical Music Profession: The Past, the Present and Strategies for the Future - Dawn Elizabeth Bennett
ISBN: 9780754659594
Publication Date: 2008-10-28
Understanding the Classical Music Profession is an essential resource for educators, practitioners and researchers who seek to understand the careers of classically-trained musicians, and the extent to which professional practice is reflected within existing classical performance-based music education and training. Taking Australia as a case-study, Dawn Bennett outlines how Australia is now a service economy, and an important component of service provision is in the culture and recreation industries. Despite this, employment in culture and recreation is poorly understood and a lack of cultural intelligence contributes to a less than satisfactory environment that inhibits the creative potential of cultural practitioners. Musicians in the twenty-first century require a broad and evolving base of skills and knowledge to sustain their careers as cultural practitioners. Bennett maintains that a musician cannot be simply defined as a performer, but that a musician is someone who works within the profession of music in one or more specialist fields. The perception of a musician as a multi-skilled professional working within a portfolio career has significant implications for policy, funding, education and training, and for practitioners and students seeking to achieve sustainable careers. This indispensable book provides a comprehensive analysis of life as a musician, from education and training to professional practice as well as revealing the structure of the Australian cultural industries. Although Australia is the focus of the book, the basis of the research originates from many different places and most of the issues discussed relate directly to other countries throughout the world.

Marketing for Scientists: How to Shine in Tough Times - Marc J. Kuchner
ISBN: 9781597269940
Publication Date: 2011-11-15
It's a tough time to be a scientist: universities are shuttering science departments, federal funding agencies are facing flat budgets, and many newspapers have dropped their science sections altogether. But according to Marc Kuchner, this antiscience climate doesn't have to equal a career death knell-it just means scientists have to be savvier about promoting their work and themselves. In Marketing for Scientists, he provides clear, detailed advice about how to land a good job, win funding, and shape the public debate.   As an astrophysicist at NASA, Kuchner knows that "marketing" can seem like a superficial distraction, whether your daily work is searching for new planets or seeking a cure for cancer. In fact, he argues, it's a critical component of the modern scientific endeavor, not only advancing personal careers but also society's knowledge.    Kuchner approaches marketing as a science in itself. He translates theories about human interaction and sense of self into methods for building relationships-one of the most critical skills in any profession. And he explains how to brand yourself effectively-how to get articles published, give compelling presentations, use social media like Facebook and Twitter, and impress potential employers and funders.    Like any good scientist, Kuchner bases his conclusions on years of study and experimentation. In Marketing for Scientists, he distills the strategies needed to keep pace in a Web 2.0 world.

Recruiting Fishery Scientists : Workshop on Stock Assessment and Social Science Careers. - Ocean Studies Board Staff; National Research Council Staff; Geosciences, Environment, and Resource Commission; Division on Earth and Life Studies Staff
ISBN: 9780309563635
Publication Date: 2001-01-01
The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) employs many fishery scientists with diverse skills. The agency finds that the supply of fishery biologists is adequate to meet most of its demand. However, increasing demands on the agency to understand fish populations and the social and economic conditions in fishing communities have created a need for additional experts in the fields of fisheries stock assessment and social sciences. NMFS has developed plans for meeting its anticipated staff needs in stock assessment and social sciences and asked the National Research Council (NRC) to convene a workshop to discuss the plans and suggest other actions the agency might take to ensure an adequate supply of experts in these fields. Approximately 30 individuals gathered in Woods Hole, Massachusetts on July 17, 2000 under the auspices of the NRC's Ocean Studies Board to discuss NMFS' plans. This document summarizes the presentations and discussions at that one-day workshop. No attempt was made to reach consensus among the participants; thus, the suggestions recorded in this summary represent the personal views of workshop participants, as summarized by NRC staff.

ISBN: 9780814432419
Publication Date: 2012-12-12
Graphic design is a crowded, highly competitive world. And it takes a lot more than raw talent and technical ability to make it as an independent designer. Successful graphic designer and entrepreneur, Larry Daniels exposes the weak spot of so many: the critical business side of running even a one-person design firm.

Packed with sample agreements, letters, forms, and more, it reveals how to: - Create a website and portfolio that highlight design solutions - Do pre-pitch research and deliver winning presentations - Prepare inviting proposals that win lucrative contracts - Establish a reliable system for tracking billable hours (and staying solvent) - Use cold-calling strategies even sales phobics can master - Quantify design decisions in ways that business management can relate to and respect - Break out of "freelancer' mode to highly compensated creative consultant The field of design is littered with failures. To stand out and succeed, you need to be professional, efficient, and focused on the bottom-line results that clients value. The Graphic Designer's Business Survival Guide shows you how. "
