Making Time for Making Music

cover-high-resolution-copy-678x1024.jpg

Once you leave the supportive embrace of school, pursuing music can pose hurdles. Whether it’s playing an instrument or singing, how do you make time for rehearsals? Should you take lessons? And if you do, how to find the right teacher? How do you avoid physical strains and cope with performance nerves? Yet thousands of adults pursue it because they love it.

Baltimore native Amy Nathan surveyed hundreds for her new book, Making Time for Making Music. We hear from musicians Max Weiss, Baltimore Magazine editor, and Liz Sogge, a data specialist for Johns Hopkins.

Amy Nathan will be talking about her new book a week from Saturday, July 28, 6 pm at the Ivy Bookshop on Falls Road.

At Artscape THIS weekend, you can hear: The BSO Academy Brass Band concert Saturday afternoon … the BSO Academy Chamber Orchestra Concert Saturday evening … and the BSO Academy Chamber Music Ensemble concert Sunday afternoon.
