Kurzbeschreibung

Eloise Ristad deals with the complex problems which torment and cripple so many of our most creative and talented people, and she does so with compassion, wisdom, and wit. Methods for dealing with the problems of stage fright, self-criticism, preparation for performance, releasing creativity, and more.
Musicians of all types, as well as teachers, parents, and authors exclaim below how Eloise's unique approach has helped them and others.

Foreword, by Lorin Hollander, concert pianist

Eloise Ristad deals here with complex problems which torment and cripple so many of our most creative and talented people, and she does so with compassion, wisdom, and wit. The problem of stage fright, for instance, is a suffering of epidemic proportions in our society, and involves modalities of thought and projections that rob spontaneity and enthusiasm in artistic performance.

Those interested in creative education have long felt that an entirely new, holistic and nurturing process of allowing individuals to discover and express themselves is needed if our educational system is to avoid the neuroses and creative blocks of the past generation. This book illuminates through its conversational style the destructive inhibitions, fears, and guilt experienced by all of us as we fail to break through to creativity. This story is told to me day after day in conservatories and college campuses around the world. Indeed I felt at times that she was telling of my own most petty and debilitating fears.

But what is important, A Soprano on Her Head supplies answers and methods for overcoming these universal psychological blocks--methods that have not only been proven in her own studio, but which trace back through history to the oldest and wisest systems of understanding the integration of mind and body. The work bears scrutiny both scientifically and holistically.

This is a wonderful book. Read it. You are not alone.

5.0 von 5 Sternen So much fun practicing - a simply fabulous book 4. Februar 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
I really don`t know how to praise this book enough, and I highly recommend it to anyone, who would like to increase their results in playing the piano, the cello, the oboe, singing or playing any other instrument, and surely the book could be more than interesting to other people practicing "performance" like actors, entertainers, footballplayer and so on. I was a bit puzzled by the title of the book, and bought it curious to find out, what was hidden behind these words. What I found was the most interesting book about practicing I have ever read, and I am amazed and sad about the fact, that the author is passed away years ago, wondering how the principles of this book can remain unknown to all the teachers I have had. The book has 16 chapters, each chapter taking you on a fabulous journey in practicing in a lot of different ways. The author gives you all the material you need to explore the music and more important your everyday life in a new and different way. She talks about handling inner judges, inner clowns, dancing your music, handling your symtoms of stage fright, giving up "playing it the right way" and finding out your way to play and sing the music, and gives plenty of examples of students finding their way through. And when it all comes down to final it is strictly about being aware. During the authors experience teaching, she makes you realize, that often we are so busy and messed up thinking about what people will say, how we will sound or what someone else would have done in our place, that we don`t even have the ability nor the energy to make a single decent tone, whereas if we put all that energy into awareness of what we are doing, we could really make something out of it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Exquisite!!! A life saver! 12. Januar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
I'm a Freshman at Portland State University. After playing the trumpet for upwards of eight years, I decided to major in music. I had finished off most of my first term when it came time to play a robust and quick piece infront of my collegues. I froze. I had never had an experience like this before and it was terrifying. I wanted to perform for a living, and this was threatening to stop me. The next day, a dear friend of mine, and a graduate student here, set this book on my case. "Try this," she said. "It helped me." She was right. After reading this book, I discovered secrets that not only have helped me unlock my music potential, but also helpedme in the competitive world of English Horseback riding. I remain forever greatful to her for her recommendation, and I make the same one to anyone with a fear of performing.

The book gives you a lot of diffent tools to try and get more out of your practice time and be more happy about it. Yesterday I went to my first songlesson at my conservatory in Italy after reading this book, and my voice was strong and free and I felt joy for the music for the first time in months. No one can garantee you, that it lasts, but if it dosn`t I can always go back and do another experiment guided by the book, there are plenty left for me to explore. So if you want to feel more comfortable about yourself and your instrument or your voice, do yourself a favor, and buy this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen right side up at any age! 8. April 2002
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I'm 15 years old and had to read this book as homework from my voice teacher. I thought it was going to be a really lame book, so she told me to just read a few chapters. I thought " fine, I'll read 1 or 2 and be done with it". But once I started,I couldn't stop! I was increadible! It has helped me not only as a singer, but as a cellist, an actress, a dancer, a performer in general, and as a whole peson. This book isn't just for musicians and performers, it's for anyone who loves music and movement. For anyone who loves life! Because just as you will learn from Eloise in her masterfully written book, life is a performance. This book has changed my life in such a significant way, and it will change yours, too. Now my teacher keeps bugging me to give it back! Open your heart to this book. Sing and play and dance and discover and laugh and cry with it. She exposes the passion inside you and coaxes it out so gently and beautifuly. You will never be the same!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A must for the hyper-perfectionist 2. Mai 2001
Von "kangarex" - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I was recommended this book by my voice teacher when I would consistently over-control my voice trying to do everything "perfectly". It not only helped with that problem, it helped with my stage presence and just about everything else. Anybody who has lost their love of singing because of the need to "get it right", anybody with stage fright (or even just a severely stiff stage presence), anyone who doesn't believe they can really perform should read this book. It's written with warmth, humor, and great clarity and lots of personal examples. Any musician (and a lot of other people) would benefit.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Tough to put down 3. April 2004
Von Tobin Sparfeld - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
The first chapter of this book was a reading assignment for my voice pedagogy class. I wasn't completely sold by the title (or the cover), but I was instantly hooked once I started reading. This book will be loved by all musicians as well as anyone engaged in any sort of practice. Through her exciting and light approach to dealing with "serious problems," Ristad shows us that our harshest critics are those "judges" within us, those inner voices to which we currently worship. When we are willing to put those voices aside momentarily and give ourselves permission to try, to experiment, even to fail once in a while, we actually give ourself permission to grow and excel. An inspiring message to all.
