"Boy, do I have a lot to learn!" Anyone who's ever picked up a musical instrument of any kind-from the first caveman banging rocks to that little kid at the guitar shop-has though that. I know I did. I'd been trying for years to break in to the music scene, to show everyone my chops, to make my mark. And I was good. But I wasn't great. I knew that there was something wrong.

Then the teacher showed up. I didn't ask for him. I didn't think I needed him. And all he said he could teach me was "nothing."

What happened next, you may not believe...I sure didn't...but that didn't stop him.

The Music Lesson is the inspiring story of a young bass player and the lessons he learns about Life, Music, and the Life of Music. Throughout this audiobook is new, original music written by Victor Wooten and a bonus performance by the original supergroup Bela Fleck and the Flecktones.

About the Author:

Victor L. Wooten has won five Grammy Awards and two Nashville Music Awards for Bassist of the Year, and is an original member of the Grammy Award-winning ensemble Bela Fleck & the Flecktones.

From AudioFile:

Author and bassist Victor L. Wooten's words take on a mesmerizing jazzy rhythm as he tells a parable about a mysterious teacher named Michael who instills in him a new love for music. Michael stimulates his pupil with offbeat imagery as he makes his points, which are augmented with music and sound effects to create a more theatrical experience. While listeners will learn about musical concepts and techniques, Wooten's story is primarily intended to be inspirational as he recalls the mystical events that boosted his motivation and ability at a time when he was experiencing a career ebb. As music lessons go, this one is unique and can be enjoyed by both musicians and general listeners, especially those interested in the arts and creativity. J.A.S. AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
