Free Teacher's Guide & Student Workbook Now Available for Street-Wise Professor Book

For the 2nd Edition of Lessons from a Street-Wise Professor: What You Won’t Learn at Most Music Schools, lead author Ray Ricker and I developed a FREE teacher’s guide and student workbook to accompany the book (both available below). Find out more about the book and read testimonials here, and purchase from Amazon here.


Having used this book in our classes at the Eastman School of Music, we have developed a wealth of in-class activities and assignments that we are sharing here. Our goal is to save teachers time and provide some tried and tested ideas that we know are effective and that students find helpful. The Teacher's Guide includes 18 topics taken directly from the 2nd edition of the book, and has suggested page readings, in-class activities, and assignments for each topic


We’ve created a FREE student workbook that has prompts and brainstorming space to help guide students through the self-reflection parts of the book.
