Publisher's Summary

Talent means nothing when it comes to getting better. Practice is everything. But exactly what is good practice? How does good practice create talent?
The focus of this book is music practice, but these techniques and mindsets can be applied to any skill you want to improve. The Practice of Practice covers essential practice strategies and mindsets you won't find in any other book. You'll learn what research tells us about practice, but more importantly, you'll learn how great musicians in many genres of music think about practice, and you'll learn the strategies and techniques they use to improve.
This book will help you get better faster, whether you play rock, Bach, or any other kind of music. It will also help you be a more informed teacher or a more effective parent of a young learner. Don't practice longer, practice smarter.

Great Listen

This book was awesome! It has expanded my music perception ten fold. From great mindsets, to practice habits, to resources, to humorous stories, this book has tons of useful information. I recommend it to all musicians, novice to expert. I look forward to listening to it again in a few months to see what else I can discover. Thanks for a great book Jonathan.

Read the Book Instead

This book has good content but didn't maximise the potential in an audio book format to incorporate the additional musical elements without having to constantly refer to the books website. This made for a less satisfactory listening experience.
