From the Author:

If you are a serious musician who wants to give your audience a deeper experience of music, this book is for you.  Let's go out and open some ears!

From the Back Cover:

Imagine an audience that is really listening. Without compromising musical sophistication, you engage listeners of every age and experience level so that they enthusiastically embrace- and even perform or create- complex musical masterworks. Their applause and excitement rivals the crowds at major athletic events. They leave the performance gratified and have a new understanding and appreciation of music; you know you have reached them successfully.

This is no fantasy. Major conservatories and performers have developed entirely new ways to connect with and captivate audiences.

David Wallace has been teaching these techniques at The Juilliard School and to orchestras and conservatories around the world. For the first time, "Reaching Out" gives you access to the ground-breaking principles that will revolutionize your approach to audience engagement and interactive performance.
