Welcome to this week's episode of the Everyday Musician Podcast! We made it to the big 3-0! This week I talk to composer Joseph Foster Harkins on his compositional style, the relationship between composer and performer, and how he tries to write music that's accessible to everyone. We also talk about how quality is more important than quantity as if we were eating a kale salad instead of a bag of potato chips! Learn more about Joseph on his website at www.josephfosterharkins.com. Episode 30 is brought to you by HotelTonight.
