Materials for MUSC 689 (Seminar in Advanced Conducting)
My notes from Musaishi Myamoto's classic "Book of Five Rings" and how I see it relating to conducting.
This book is very much worth owning for all conductors--the synopsis doesn't do it justice.
Stephen Pressfield's amazing "War of Art" is a great book about life as a creative artist.
Hopefully this short synopsis will whet your appetite for more, and you'll buy and read the whole book.
