One way to continue developing your craft. Below James Rhodes talks about playing music. Use this excerpt to help your acting.


“Arpeggios and scales are never necessary!” he insists. “In any piece there will be technical challenges that you can work on using the music itself. I also loathe doing scales and arpeggios, but hey, I’m looking at this Mozart concerto that’s sitting on my piano right now, and it’s filled with scales and arpeggios. If you’re working on a piece and achieving something, it’s a great way to learn. Find a piece you love, and work on it through the music.”

-James Rhodes

If you want to expand on that and really go in depth, pick up a copy of Effortless Mastery: Liberating the Master Musician Within by jazz great by Kenny Werner. It was recommended to me by Roberta Solomon. ( <---name drop)

In a nutshell, it gives you tools to break from being an intermediate level talent, who might be stuck in a career rut, to help become a master level talent.
