Description

(Book). From Grammy-winning musical icon and legendary bassist Victor L. Wooten comes The Music Lesson, the story of a struggling young musician who wanted music to be his life, and who wanted his life to be great. Then, from nowhere it seemed, a teacher arrived. Part musical genius, part philosopher, part eccentric wise man, the teacher would guide the young musician on a spiritual journey, and teach him that the gifts we get from music mirror those from life, and every movement, phrase, and chord has its own meaning...all you have to do is find the song inside.

Reviews

Praise for The Music Lesson

"Victor Wooten has been doing things on the bass that nobody dreamed of, and we bass players can't help but hunger for some insight into what inspires him and how he does it. Here, as in his music, he surprises us and gives us more depth than we expected, more of himself than many would dare. This is his journey, his mystical quest, not merely to play the bass but to fully encounter and understand Music itself."--Tony Levin, World Class Bassist with the Peter Gabriel Band

"A MUST-READ FOR ANY MUSIC ENTHUSIAST."--Chuck Rainey, World Class Bassist and Recording Artist

"THE MUSIC LESSON IS A REVELATION."--Chris Jisi, Senior Contributing Editor, Bass Player magazine

"BOTH ENTERTAINING AND ENLIGHTENING."--Guitarnoise.com
