Reviews


"While The Mindful Musician will be particularly helpful to readers who struggle with self-defeating behaviors, negative self-talk, or difficulty focusing during performance, its ideas and insights would help any musician learn to reframe his perspective to lead to more focused performance, greater resilience, more patience, and greater happiness overall." -- Lesley McAllister, Piano Magazine
