13. Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck: Ch. 1 & 2 w/ Matt Richards

We are joined again by Matt Richards, co-host of MMM Conversations, to introduce our next book: "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck." We discuss the first two chapters, which includes conversations like who we are trying to impress, social media (and its influence), Catherine's worst Pizza Hut customer, and at the end of the day, what we give a fuck about. Matt and Catherine also got *really* into Star Wars (join our Patreon for the outtakes!). This takes our podcast in a totally new direction, and we hope you enjoy.  Follow us on Instagram: Brittany Ross: @bmrossmusic Catherine Flinchum: @catflinchflute Join Our Facebook Group.

9. Inner Game of Music: Ch. 12 & 13 w/ Matt Richards

Today we are joined by Matt Richards, bassist, middle school orchestra teacher, and co-host of MMM Conversations. Listen as we dive into two very different chapters of this book: one dealing with how to address the relationship between parent/coach/teacher and child/student, and the other addressing how to balance the inner game concepts between the two sides of the brain. Topics include classroom recruitment, the gig economy, Catherine's love for sloths, how good rosin looks like it would taste, using constructive criticism instead of negative statements, cassette tapes, what competitive music school is like, and providing kids with the tools they need to succeed.

8. Inner Game of Music: Ch. 10 & 11

Brittany and Catherine dive into Chapter 10 as they talk how effective awareness versus “do it” instructions are when teaching lessons. Later, they turn on their “inner game listener”by listening to a thousand heavy metal rounds of Beethoven’s 5th Symphony. Catherine also fights a spider, so the bigger question is, who wins?
