Nice book, although I was expecting it to focus more on stage performance. It is a bit repetitive in certain topics.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Practice, Performance, and Wellness 4. Februar 2010
Von Christopher A. Davis - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
The subtitle of the book is an outline of what you'll find inside. Part one deals with, "practicing deeply." It begins with the necessary, but mundane, subjects of organizing practice time and creating a supportive practice environment. Klickstein divides practice into five zone: new, developing, and performance material along with technique and musicianship. Some of these are self-explanatory, others explore ares few people venture. How much of your practice includes sight reading and ear training?

The following chapters look at how to work with material in each practice zone, and cover things such as mental practice, selecting repertoire, memorization, interpretative issues, and taking breaks in practice. The material is necessarily general. A book could not contain specific practice suggestions for every major piece in every instrument's repertoire. I consider the generality of this advice a strength. The practice concepts in The Musician's Way could be easily integrated with whatever your private instructor is giving you.

I have always thought that there needed to be a good, lengthy book on practicing, but I'd never found one I liked. It had gotten to the point where I thought of writing something myself. Now I don't have to. The The Musician's Way fills that gap.

Part two deals with performance issues. It begins by discussing anxiety's effects on our bodies, and continues with, "five facets of preparation," and issues of backstage and pre-performance routines.

What I like most about the section on performance is its practicality. In short, Mr. Klickstein is not afraid to discuss what most people consider trivial issues. Are your clothes prepared? Do you have the music? How do you start and end a piece? How do you walk out on stage? So much preparation goes into the music itself, but nothing goes into stage deportment or easy issues that, if dealt with, can help a performer be less worried and more focused.

Part three covers, "lifelong creativity." This section is a discussion on injury prevention and how to succeed as a student. The injury prevention section deals with, among other things, an issue that musicians don't like to talk about: hearing damage. Simply put, this section is terrifying. I'd never even thought about most of the things the book covers, but I'm certainly glad I know about them now.

The portion on succeeding as a student covers things such as the student-teacher relationship and dealing with criticism.

--Quote Junkie--

One of my favorite things about this book is the relevant quotes placed before each section.

--Strength in Formatting--

When I first started reading The Musician's Way, I was a bit put off by the numerous lists put in boxed out asides.

Over the course of the book, I realized that these were a strength. The formatting and lists allow quick reviewing, making this book a solid, easily-scanned reference.

If you are...

* a music student
* a professional musician
* a serious (or not-so-serious) amateur musician
* anyone else, really

You owe it to yourself to read this book. The concepts found in it might seem like common knowledge, but there are is some powerful gems contained within the pages of The Musician's Way.

The Musician's Way and The Savvy Musician make a formidable duo of books for any musician. Together they fill major holes in any music curriculum, and offer a wealth of knowledge collected in a few hundred pages. I can't recommend either highly enough.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Make Practice Perfect 11. Januar 2012
Von PBC - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
A couple weeks ago, I was discussing with my teacher Malcolm Gladwell's Outliers: The Story of Success and his belief in 10,000 hours of practice with something is the magic number to hit for mastery in proficiency. This lead to the observation that we both know people who have practiced a lot, but still, to put it in simplest terms, still suck.

She suggested that I read Musician's Way, and I cannot be more ecstatic by how this book helped me understand practice. I'm an intermediate level violist who has returned to playing after a hiatus. I had no idea about practice and just went in auto-pilot: no major thought, no concentration, and no plan.

This book really points out what practice is suppose to accomplish and how to go about doing that. After reading it, I realized that I wasn't thinking big picture a lot of the time while practicing, I was just trying to get it done - errors and all. A big example of this was the section on how to work on "New Music." It showed the concepts of mapping out songs, working on getting to know it deeply without picking up an instrument, and most of all, avoiding errors that become ingrained.

Since I've incorporated suggestions from this book, my practices have been more satisfying, I've shown better improvement and I have a better idea of what I'm trying to accomplish.

I would not hesitate to suggest this book to other intermediate players of any instrument. This book hit me at the right time; my old practice techniques weren't working on harder material, but I had grown use to practicing every day. It might be too much for a beginner to start out with and probably too boring for an advanced player.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A must for anybody serious about music 19. November 2010
Von Rome is Home - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
The Musician's Way is definitely the book that any young (or older) musician should read. Extremely informative, full of suggestions and practical advices in all the aspects of music making. I teach a program in Performance Skills and Perspectives at the Music Dep. of the University of Malta (Europe) and I use this book as one of the resources for the course.
Personally, I would have preferred a bit warmer style of writing. At times it feels like you are reading an essay on brain surgery more than an inspirational book on creativity, but this does not take anything away from the its value.

Thank you Mr. Klickstein! I look forward to your next book. :-)

5.0 von 5 Sternen This is simply an excellent book in every respect 22. Juli 2015
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This is simply an excellent book in every respect. I have referenced it in other reviews, for it's advice on practice as well as it's reliance on scientific studies about the learning process applied to music, and in addition the supportive "tone" while setting out realistic demands that the musician must make of themselves. The book is actually addressed to students who have had about 8 years of preparation and are a college level study, so his "rule" to repeat a passage until one can play the section perfectly three times, may be too little repetition for less advanced players. Note that some teachers say "five times to perfection"; others, "eight times...". etc. And just because it's perfect one day does not mean the repetition rule won't have to be done again the next day. Nevertheless, the advice on practice habits and strategy per se is very helpful for students at every level. The writing is clear and to the point. One feels that one is being addressed by a very knowledgeable teacher and a rather nice person.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Worth considering, but only the first part of the book helped me out... 25. Juli 2014
Von Animus - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I find the first section of the book to be the most useful. It talks about strategies to help you organize your practice time most efficiently, what/how you should practice and gives a clear organization of what the different stages of learning a piece are. You can get the bulk of this information from their website or by downloading a "preview" though.
