Getting Your Music Past the Fear

Getting Your Music Past the Fear

by Don Richmond

Don Richmond has been a guest on the Art of the Song and a frequent contributor to the Creativity Corner. We're very happy to make Don's book available to our listeners.

"Playing music can be a joyous dance, an exquisite expression of life itself and all that it holds. Music can move mountains; music can change the world. Let your music come out and play. Get your music past the fear."

"If you've ever felt that sickening paralysis descend on you as you take the stage, this book is for you. If you've ever felt yourself putting out a stiff, wooden, forced performance when you know it could be a flowing joyous experience, you'll find help within these pages. If you know you have the music inside but voices keep talking you out of doing anything with it, you're not alone. There is a way out. Fear is what keeps you from singing that song you wrote to your friends, or from putting a band together and looking for some gigs. Fear is what keeps you from relaxing, opening up, and really putting out what you have to offer, whether in a song, on stage, or in the studio."
