User Review  - Lisa Crowder - Goodreads

This book focuses on the real reason we sing or play music--for enjoyment, self expression, and authentic expression of the human spirit. If this then becomes the focus, all the rest will fall in place. Read full review

User Review  - Padraig - Goodreads

A lot of music instructional books focus on the technical, but this one emphasises bringing out the musical in your performance and learning, so is worthwhile in that respect. Read full review
