    "Controversies in Medicine and Neuroscience: Through the Prism of History, Neurobiology, and Bioethics (2023) is well worth reading and studying. It should be standard on all doctor’s bookshelves and among the interested laymen."

Creativity and Theory in Musicianship

This book fills a gap between theory and creativity in musicianship. This frequently observed gap fixes theory as a rigidified level of thought, where creativity is excluded from a canonized corpus of ideas. Creativity, on the other hand, is preconceived as a theory-less, wild activity that blossoms while performing pre-composed musical structures. This book provides a discussion of the creative drive in theory and theory-inspired thoughts while understanding how these ideas shape performance. The future of music is only as limited as one’s imagination, and, to this end, the text illuminates examples of creative musicianship.
