Get Some Grit! | A Podcast for Musicians in Progress
About This Show
My name is Bruce, and I am a university music educator. My journey towards a full-time career in music took many twists and turns – some so jarring that I wondered if I had what it took to survive the trip! What came out of these struggles was my grit. Why grit? Grit combines passion, ambition, toughness and strength of character. If you want a career in the arts, grit will be what separates you from the pack.
Are you scared about where your career in the arts is headed? Do you wonder if you have what it takes to endure the journey? The Get Some Grit Podcast is here to help you!

This episode's topic outlines my return to reading after years of not being much of a reader, how reading has really helped me with some struggles that I thought I might never overcome, and how I believe reading is the best thing you can do right now to "break the logjam" in the creative part of your mind. My list of ten books that have really made a difference include: "The War of Art" by Steven Pressfield "Fully Alive: Lighten Up and Live by Ken Davis "Psycho-Cybernetics" by Dr. Maxwell Maltz "The Talent Code" by Daniel Coyle "The Little Book of Talent" by Daniel Coyle "The Dip" by Seth Godin "Effortless Mastery" by Kenny Werner "Daring Greatly" by Brene Brown "The Art of Happiness" by His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the Holy Bible :) If you're having any trouble getting back into reading, maybe I can help!
