It will change the way you play, teach, learn, and listen to music as well as the way
you see somethings in Life ! Great for players, teachers, and people living life.
Have you ever wondered what the greatest musicians in the world know that you don't?

way? This book takes us to a different place; no scales or theory here. We've all heard
that Music is a language and this book shows us why it is a language and how to speak
it. Lacing the book with imaginative metaphors and unlikely comparisons, there's more
wisdom contained in these pages than most musicians will ever learn in a lifetime.
If you're ready to explore Music beyond the classroom, then this is what you've been
waiting for. It is said that when the student is ready, the teacher will appear...are
