Music performance is an intuitive art. Music practice is a conscious managerial skill. To practice music effectively the musician must be in touch with his intuitive artistic impulses, and at the same time, stand outside the process as a coach, making an endless series of conscious managerial decisions. Most music practicers are ineffective coaches because they have never been taught explicitly the intricacies of managing their practice. "Practicing for Artistic Success: The Musician's Guide to Self-empowerment" is dedicated to describing both the strategies that achieve consistent gymnastic control efficiently and the strategies that facilitate musical expression and communication. It presents an easy-to-learn system to all musicians who are ready to reduce frustration and bring greater meaning and joy into their practice space.
