Présentation de l'éditeur

Talent means nothing when it comes to getting better. Practice is everything. But exactly what is good practice? How does good practice create talent? And what in the world does a pinwheel have to do with practice? The focus of this book is music practice, but these techniques and mindsets can be applied to any skill you want to improve.

This book covers essential practice strategies and mindsets you won’t find in any other book. You’ll learn the What, Why, When, Where, Who, and especially the How of great music practice. You’ll learn what research tells us about practice, but more importantly, you’ll learn how great musicians in many genres of music think about practice, and you’ll learn the strategies and techniques they use to improve. This book will help you get better faster, whether you play rock, Bach, or any other kind of music.

Whatever instrument you want to play, The Practice of Practice will help you get the most out of your practice. This book will help you become more savvy about getting better. It will also help you be a more informed teacher or a more effective parent of a young learner. Don’t practice longer, practice smarter.

The book covers 6 aspects of practice:


What: Definitions, and what music practice does to your brain.

Why: Motivation is crucial. Learn ways of keeping the flame lit in this section

Who: A lot of people including yourself will impact your practice. Learn to use them to your advantage.

When: This section covers how much, and what times of the day are best for practice. Also covers the development of practice over time.

Where: Where you practice affects how well you practice. Learn to harness the place of your practice.

How: The longest section of the book includes information about goals, structuring your practice, as well as specific techniques tested by researchers, and specific strategies pros use to get better.

Bienvenue sur ma page Amazon. Je suis un musicien, écrivain et éducateur de vie et de jouer à Chicago. Pour les cinq ou six dernières années je me suis concentré sur le jeu du jazz et adorent explorer les possibilites illimitées de l'improvisation, au jazz ou toute autre musique. Vagaband est mon combo de jazz actuelle, on joue du jazz manouche. Je joue aussi régulièrement et avec Meh!, Un groupe d'improvisation libre que j'ai commencé.

Je suis au travail sur mes deux prochains livres: le volume de base Théorie Jazz 2 et une autre pratique de la musique sur. Je suis interviewer maîtres musiciens sur la pratique et vous pouvez écouter quelques-uns des entretiens sur mon podcast, The Practice of Practice (IntentionalPractice.wordpress.com). Je m'apprête à obtenir un doctorat en éducation musicale de l'Université Northwestern et de recherche pour ma thèse, vous l'aurez deviné, la pratique.

Mes instruments sont une Monette Sib trompette (# 504) avec une embouchure B2 (également un B2SL); j'ai aussi jouer un LeBlanc F357 bugle, le modèle Arturo Sandoval. J'aime muets. J'aime aussi jouer de la guitare et posséder une Gretsch corps creux électrique et d'un Martin acoutstic / électrique (PGE-1). Je suis propriétaire et jouer quatre didgeridoos, l'un des bloodwood d'eucalyptus par le nom de Blackwater, fabriqué et sculpté par un artiste autochtone; un autre cool-regarder en fibre de verre, un monstre avec des basses profondes faites de l'agave, et l'un des bambous. Mon dernier but est de jouer non-stop (respiration circulaire) pour une heure de la méditation Didj mondiale sur le solstice suivant.

J'aime jouer des percussions, aussi. Petits instruments à percussion et les grands comme les congas, tablas, djembé, cabasa, shekere, one-shot, clave, triangle, agogo .... Mon instrument de rêve en ce moment est un tambour Hang. J'aime bricoler mon trombone soprano.

J'ai plusieurs degrés dans l'éducation musicale: un baccalauréat de l'Université de l'Oregon, un Master de l'Université Northwestern, et je suis actuellement en finir avec mon doctorat en éducation musicale, également à la Northwestern, une institution de premier plan dans la performance musicale, la recherche et l'enseignant l'éducation. Mon intérêt principal est la recherche en pratique, surtout la manière dont les maîtres apprennent à le faire. Voir mon blog sur le thème: La pratique de la pratique.

Je suis vivant actuellement aux États-Unis à Chicago avec mon épouse Michelle, et Skwirl chien et j'ai peut être trouvé dans les lieux de musique autour de la ville à la fois comme auditeur et le lecteur.

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.

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.

Inspired 8 septembre 2014
Par Patrick Kelsch - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
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.

A very complete and encouraging book on the art of music. It provides many real life examples for me. I'm actually surprised by the cost of the book. It is definitely worth much more than the price listed.
