Strive From Within: The Jazzmeia Horn Approach (Paperback)
"Jazzmeia Horn, a multi-award winning Jazz Artist based in the United States, has written a book about her experiences while composing and arranging Love and Liberation. The book Strive From Within: The Jazzmeia Horn Approach features the music of Love and Liberation and focuses on sharing Jazzmeia's knowledge on using her voice as an artist and a woman in the man dominated Jazz industry. The first of its kind, the book teaches singers how to serve Jazz music along with the many roles of a good vocalist. Thus Jazzmeia's Approach, a more cultured perspective, balances Jazz's rich history in the African American experience and the spirituality of its essence. Jazzmeia seeks to share with students her self taught expression which brings about liberation, healing, and self love. Jazzmeia feels her unique expression helps to foster a deep and lasting connection with her listeners and, ultimately, is her gift to the art form. Jazzmeia emphasizes on what she calls the "Four Elements of Focus" The Art of Storytelling, Sing Your Own Song, My Stage Is My Altar, and Everybody's Got Style."
