Several years ago I had an excerpt from my first Berklee Press book, Songwriting Strategies, featured in the “Woodshed” column of Berklee Today, a forum for music and musicians published by Berklee College of Music that goes out to 53,000 readers worldwide. I'm happy to announce a new excerpt from my new Berklee Press book, Songwriting in Practice: Notebooks, Journals, Logs, Lists, in the Spring 2019 edition of Berklee Today. It's in the Intervals section (intervals, get it musicians?) and it's about one of the practices I discuss in the book: making Appointments with Inspiration. I know it sounds kinda woo-woo and touchy-feely, but it's actually very specific, actionable, and productive. Check out the excerpt!
(By the way - thanks to long-time Berklee Today editor Mark Small, who is stepping down from his role. He's been a great supporter and advocate for Berklee faculty for many years - we'll miss him!)
