“Wow, here is the ideal collection of practice and performance tips, all in one place! As a teacher, I will often go into great detail with my students about the ideal practice routine, a memorization technique or a fingering concept. This is great, to have all these concepts written out in detail for the student’s reference! The step-by-step schedule for planning a performance is, by itself, worth the price of the book! Thanks Barry, I have made this a required reference for all my students.”
