9780195126112: The Young Musician's Survival Guide: Tips from Teens & Pros

This lively book can help young people with some of the hassles involved in learning an instrument. It is filled with practical tips from older teens and from professional musicians, including Wynton Marsalis, Paula Robinson, James Galway, Andre Watts, Joshua Bell, and Evelyn Glennie, who tell how they handled learning-an-instrument problems as kids--and how they deal with some of those same issues today.

Review:


"From choosing an instrument to practicing regularly to learning the rules of ensemble etiquette, this guide is packed with useful suggestions and enthusiasm for music."--Publishers Weekly


"Thorough work. Nathan combines advice from teenagers with that of well-known professionals.... Through the carefully organized chapters, young performers will discover that the frustrations and fears they experience are not unique.... There is an encouraging but honest tone throughout."--School Library Journal


"Nathan provides advice for teen musicians on topics such as choosing an instrument, finding time to practice, handling performance jitters, and dealing with others in the band or orchestra.... A unique and potentially useful resource for young musicians looking for help."--Booklist


"A book filled with practical advice about how to find time to practice, how to calm down before playing in public, and how to handle that chatterbox who sits behind you at rehearsal."--The New York Times


"Author Amy Nathan has compiled an accessible guidebook to help young people with some of the problems involved in learning a new instrument and sticking with it when things seem tough."--Richmond Parents Monthly


"A unique resource for the young instrumentalist. It speaks in a language that will appeal to its target audience without ever talking down. Parents can also learn a great deal about how to help their children understand the intricacies and wonders of the practical musician's art."--Leonard Slatkin, Music Director, National Symphony Orchestra


"Teens ... will appreciate this practical and candid book. Reading the book is like sitting down for a heart-to-heart with a caring music teacher.... Recommended."--The Book Report
