- How to practice: exploring strategies and tactics in an aging body through book reviews, interviews, personal anecdotes, with the goal of staying happy, healthy and focused.
- Attitude: what it is a good attitude, how does helps us to learn and persevere, which daily tactics help us to acquire or keep a good one, what to do if yours needs a tune up?
- Metacognition: what it is, what it can teach us about learning, resources for study, conferences, and in practice.
- Intrinsic motivation: what it is, how it helps us to learn and persevere as we age, how to help those we mentor with theirs.
Commercial gigs are sparse these days, thank god. Thirty two years of that was enough. Creative music shows with interesting people? Going full on. With that in mind I hired some A+ Jazz musicians the other day and recorded a session. I had so much fun I'm saving up for round two.
Swirl is a tune I wrote, enjoy.
St. James Infirmary is an old tune I love to play.
