Beyond workshops, classes, coaching, and counsel, there are some resources available to the actor-musician, whether seasoned or just starting out. 


Every actor-musician should have a copy of this book. Many of the methods celebrated by Actor-Musicianship USA come from this fantastic piece, and from its author, the preeminent scholar in this field: Jeremy Harrison.
