The Musician's Lifeline by Peter Erskine and Dave Black represents the combined opinions of the authors and their knowledge gained through their lives in music. In addition, it includes advice from 150 of the best musicians that the authors have the honor of knowing, who responded to seven simple questions about topics ranging from sight-reading to travel to general wisdom. The answers will surprise, inform, and confirm what you already know or completely contradict what you've been taught by others. This is a book you can read straight through in one sitting or jump around in . . . and always return to time and again.
