If you are looking for musical inspiration, look no further!  The Mohawk College Library has a music subject guide that includes books, e-books, journals, musical scores, and websites.  Every musician needs a little help sometimes – even Sting.  In this recent TED Talk, How I started writing songs again, the composer and singer explains how and where he found inspiration.  You can find more great videos like this on the videos page of the subject guide.

Are you attending any of the concerts, or participating in the competition this weekend?  Tell us all about your experience at the Hamilton International Guitar Festival.
