The book “The Musician's Way: A Guide to Practice, Performance, and Wellness” is a comprehensive guide for aspiring musicians. It covers pretty much everything you will need to do in order to become a serious musician and performer. This resourceful book is chock full of invaluable advice, information and secrets from musical professionals and teachers.
The book’s author, Gerald Klickstein, does an excellent job of describing in precise detail how to become successful by practicing effectively and productively, step by step. It is very important to apply each chapter during actual practice, such as making practice logs or writing down practice goals for each session, and so forth. The practice section of his book is extremely helpful for scheduling, managing and improving the quality of musical practice.
In The Musician's Way, veteran guitarist, performer and educator Gerald Klickstein combines the latest research with his 30 years of professional experience to provide aspiring musicians with a roadmap to artistic excellence. Part I of the book, Artful Practice, describes strategies to interpret and memorize compositions, fuel motivation, collaborate, and more.
Part II of The Musician’s Way, Fearless Performance, lifts the lid on the hidden causes of nervousness and stage fright by showing how musicians can effectively overcome their personal fears and anxiety to become confident performers.
Part III, Lifelong Creativity, surveys tactics to prevent music-related injuries and equips musicians to tap their own innate creativity. Written in a conversational style, The Musician's Way presents an inclusive system for all instrumentalists and vocalists to advance their musical abilities and succeed as performing artists.
Even though Mr. Klickstein is a renowned classical guitarist, "The Musician's Way" is a book that will benefit any musician. He touches upon musical aspects that are crucial for all musical performers, from pianists to lead guitarists, from violinists to drummers to vocalists. Regardless of what instrument you play or how long you've been playing, singing or what level of musician you consider yourself to be, you will find a tremendous amount of beneficial information in this book. I have been a performing musician for as long as I can remember and highly recommend this book for all of the aspiring musicians out there!
