The Arts Addict

On November 23rd covering ,

This is a new blog by classical contrabassist Jason Heath. He has some well-thought-out observations on the musical life that musicians of any genre will be able to easily relate to. I like the series of essays that begins here. He offers his point of view on the psychology of the performer. One essay that I found valuable and unusual is this one on the satisfactions of section playing. It hints at one of the great things about playing music in a group, which is the diminished sense of individual ego and the gaining of a group ego, which can be exhilarating.
