Kenny Werner was a musical prodigy and performed effortlessly from a very early age. Despite this he has great empathy and insight into the problems that all performers face. We all struggle to get the notes perfect every time, and to impress our audiences. And at the same time we forget the magic of music itself.
This book offers a psychological method to overcome self-consciousness, and forget the self. What is important is that the music speaks. Kenny has produced a method and a CD, which I am finding very effective in helping me meet all those typical psychological blocking ploys that prevent me and so many other musicians produce the best we are capable of.
Don't throw your violin in the sea from frustration! Don't pass on paralysing habits to your pupils. Try reading Kenny's book, listening to his powerful CD, and gain insight as to how deal with these problems. You are not alone in struggling, and this method has a lot to offer.
