“Collaboration in the arts is the way of the future. There is strength in the power of many. No one is better equipped to write about this than Tim Sharp, whose visionary leadership of ACDA has sparked new initiatives with a variety of other professional organizations, both in North America and internationally. Tim challenges us to think beyond our traditional confines and to expand our world view to one that encompasses creative new ideas, concepts, and connections.”   —Hilary Apfelstadt

We all know we can do more together than we can alone. But collaboration is hard, takes time, and can go against human nature. Collaboration is also at the heart of musicianship.

In this dynamic and inspiring book, Tim Sharp — author of the companion Mentoring in the Ensemble Arts — guides us with a practical, step-by-step vision for improving the collaborative spirit of any ensemble or organization. The potential results can be dramatic.

Sharp provides insights into how to develop sustainable collaboration and work towards a common vision that will serve your organization for years to come. Collaboration in the Ensemble Arts seeks to change the mindset of collaboration, to embrace the challenging realities, and to establish an environment of innovation and adaptation—and most of all great music making.
