A quote from a book about church music and those who create it, but I think it applies to any area of art/work/trade. Thought I’d share…

> “…the difference between an amateur and a professional is that a professional never stops learning. If by a professional [song writer] we mean one who takes their craft seriously and who wants to push it as far as it can go, then we should learn all we can, whenever we can.
> Otherwise all we’ll ever be is amateurs, dabbling at the edges, and never seeing how far we can swim.
> The most fundamental thing in improving your technique is to listen to and learn from others you admire. Talk to other [song writers] about their craft. Share ideas and inspiration. Examine their work and try to understand how they do it.”
> Nick Page, And now let’s enter into a time of nonsense. Pg. 68
