HASH(0x9da91780) étoiles sur 5 Practical, useful, entertaining and highly recommended. 30 octobre 2014
Par David R - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
First, let me say I have been a musician, performer, band leader, and private music teacher all my life (now in my 50s). I've had many teachers over the years, and have a huge library of music teaching and method books. I have a college music degree, and have studied with some wonderful teachers--and some not-so-wonderful ones, too. ;-) I'm always looking for ways to improve my own playing and to help my students with their own practice. I was turned onto this book by a guy in one of my bands who sat in with the author at a master class. He was impressed with his teaching style and had signed on to the crowd sourcing which got this book published. His enthusiastic endorsement led me to do the same. I'm glad I did...

This is both a practical guide to new ways to practice and a fascinating look at the psychological and physiological processes involved. That is, not just WHAT to do in the practice room, but WHY and HOW it works. Lots of short, easily absorbed chapters written in a clear, entertaining style. This is the first book I've purchased which takes advantage of the ebook format to a full advantage in that there are many links to articles, videos, and other resources which are available in context. So, if you read on a tablet or PC you can click through as you read and see or hear the author's references on the fly. For that reason, I'd say the electronic version is superior to the printed copy, though you can enter the links manually if you like.

I read through it quickly the first time, and will now read again more slowly to get the "meat" out of this truly valuable resource. I recommend it to all my adult students, and use the material in all my teaching. I look forward to diving deeper into the material in this fine addition to my library.

HASH(0x9da91a8c) étoiles sur 5 It does exactly what book on musical practice is supposed to do: motivates you to practice! 21 septembre 2014
Par Buco Bucolini - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I started reading it the second time and this time around I wanna follow all the supplemental material where he provides the links to videos and interviews and such.

The book itself I enjoyed reading a ton.

It got me started on a slow practice routine and I see improvements in my playing after a very short time.
What reaffirmed I'm on the right track is when I recently went to the workshop with Joscho Stephan and at one point he said "what people most often ask me is how come I'm so fast?" "my answer is I practice slow. Even now, when I come up with a new lick I go over it very slow for a period of time until I'm sure I have a muscle memory built up and only then I go faster".
He also said it could take up to 6 months of practice before a more complex lick is ready to perform live.
Interestingly, Bobby Broom said the same thing to Jon during his book research and interviews with musicians, that it could take months before the new lick he comes up with during practice starts showing up during his live performance.

I especially like how Jon dispels the myth of in-born talent and the notion that only an extraordinary talented person can become top musician. Rather he explains it is the set of extraordinary circumstances but most importantly extraordinary dedication.

The book also has many simple but effective advices about how to make your practice more productive.

It motivated me to push even harder with on my musical journey.

Just finished the book and plan to keep it as a future reference. Lots of good stuff made its way in here. Good ideas to polish your attitude towards practice, perspectives from diverse sources, and techniques and strategies to squeeze the most out of your precious practice time. I like how the author seems to emphasize the importance of balancing a goal oriented practice with having fun. Not a lot to find negative about this one. Not instrument specific, so maybe if you're looking for exact exercises to work on you won't really find that here. A little conceptual at times, but that's fine by me.

HASH(0x9da91fd8) étoiles sur 5 Moving the needle further and inspirational 10 avril 2015
Par James M. Kangas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
I found this book very provocative. As a musician it's common to hear ideas end with "so now go practice this..." but not so common to hear thoughts about how and why that proceeds. The author presents many facets and ideas from musicians and other scholars about how this "practice" stuff works, a lot of which may surprise you. For example, when you practice and make mistakes, this is something that is also learned - without going into scholarly detail, the author presents some of the research on this and backs it up with anecdotes from musicians in all realms - classical, jazz, African drummers.

I think the book is very rich in this way of not focusing on a homogenous community. In addition there are many links built in so that if you've bought the digital version it's easy to zip to a web site, YouTube or whatever.

Perhaps the only downside is that most chapters are a few pages only and paint the concepts in broad brush strokes. I think that's extremely appropriate, and there is a comprehensive bibliography in addition to the links.

HASH(0x9d4230f0) étoiles sur 5 It's a keeper 11 mars 2015
Par lunarg - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
Loved this book. While it is clearly geared toward musical practice, so many of his points can be used for other skill development. The book is easy to read with great examples and tons of follow-up supporting videos, readings etc to reinforce points. Amazing research into the science behind his strategies when available or experience from others when contributing a strategy. He knows his people and the skills they bring to this topic. This could easily been a very dry hard to read subject matter but he has managed to parse it out in manageable bites with humor and eloquence. One of those books you will find new information every reading, a book I will definitely refer back to and explore more of the supporting examples. Really enjoyed this.
