from the foreword by Don Campbell, author of The Mozart Effect®
"I am weeping a bit, Barry, after reading your book. What an amazing essay, so sensitive and real. Your quest and profound curiosity about life, art, nature, and the spirit is simply a triumph of ideas, research, and most of all kindness! Blessings and love to a great inspirational human." David Darling, Grammy-nominated cellist.
World-class bassist and best-selling author Barry Green has spent his life learning and showing others how to bring music to life. Three distinct sections delve deeply into the methodology, techniques, and inspiration required to energize and enliven music making for amateurs and professionals alike.
A stimulating series of activities and reflections using YouTube video clips helps the reader take Greens ideas and concepts off the page and put them into action. Imagine singing, conducting, playing, moving, and shaking with violinist Joshua Bell, Tito Puente (the king of Latin music), symphony conductors Leonard Bernstein and Gustavo Dudamel, and others!
