John Cage: Some Rules for Students and Teachers

RULE ONE: Find a place you trust, and then try trusting it for awhile.

RULE TWO: General duties of a student – pull everything out of your teacher; pull everything out of your fellow students.

RULE THREE: General duties of a teacher – pull everything out of your students. 

RULE FOUR: Consider everything an experiment.

RULE FIVE: be self-disciplined – this means finding someone wise or smart and choosing to follow them. To be disciplined is to follow in a good way. To be self-disciplined is to follow in a better way.

RULE SIX: Nothing is a mistake. There’s no win and no fail, there’s only make.

RULE SEVEN: The only rule is work. If you work it will lead to something. It’s the people who do all of the work all of the time who eventually catch on to things.

RULE EIGHT: Don’t try to create and analyze at the same time. They’re different processes.

RULE NINE: Be happy whenever you can manage it. Enjoy yourself. It’s lighter than you think.

RULE TEN: “We’re breaking all the rules. Even our own rules. And how do we do that? By leaving plenty of room for X quantities.” (John Cage)

HINTS: Always be around. Come or go to everything. Always go to classes. Read anything you can get your hands on. Look at movies carefully, often. Save everything – it might come in handy later.

– Thanks to Dave Richmond for passing these on.

Interview: What to do if you didn’t get in – ArtsHub

Missing out on an offer to study in 2015 may feel like the end of the world. It’s not.

Published 15 December 2014 – Arts Hub

A great article comparing the experience of unsuccessful applicant Manda Flanary with advice from Head of Acting at NIDA Jeff Janisheski and myself.

Taking control of what happens next

Walton said that you don’t need a degree or an institution to be an artist, and the first way to take charge of what happens next in lieu of a rejection is to put energy into training and professional development. ‘Some of the greatest artists in history don’t have a degree,’ he said.

‘Everyone who auditions is already an artist, and because of the way our auditions are, they’ve already created a new performance work and a new interpretation of a monologue. What happens next is more important than they realise.
