Thinking in Jazz : The Infinite Art of Improvisation by Paul Berliner – Learning on the bandstand

Changing Lives: Gustavo Dudamel, El Sistema, and the Transformative Power of Music by Tricia Tunstall – Hang in through the first few fanboy chapters for one of the best books I’ve ever read about teaching and learning.
