Five Things #95 / by Ross Farley

Every Wednesday I share five things I've liked and think you might like too. Here are this week’s Five Things…

  1. I finished reading Tara Westover's memoir Educated last week and somehow forgot to include it. Her story is incredible. It's one of the best things I've read in ages.

  2. BBC Radio 4's In Our Time podcast recently explored the life of Beethoven. I didn't know much about him beyond knowing he went deaf and you know, made some pretty famous music! This was a good introduction to the man behind the music.

  3. Rhythmic displacement is a great tool in the toolkit of any musician. This video shows how Harry Connick Jr. masterfully put it to use to get his audience clapping in the right place. Really impressive!

  4. A great post by Austin Kleon on the importance and role of copying in the learning process.

  5. All eight hours of Max Richter's album Sleep are now on Spotify! Sweet dreams 😴🎶
