This best-selling book has helped thousands of musicians to overcome apprehension, self-doubt, and other hindrances to natural, joyful performance. Kenny Werner puts you on a course to effortless mastery, where playing music is as simple as drawing a breath. Includes a CD designed to initiate positive thought.

Also available is a DVD of Kenny explaining his ideas and concepts before a packed house in New York City. Through his highly acclaimed and proven techniques, one can remove the technical and psychological barriers to creativity that afflict us all and liberate the master musician within.

“If you’ve played for 30 years and hardly ever enjoyed it, if you’ve constantly pointed to other players and thought they possessed something you didn’t, or if you’ve practiced for years and never really improved, read on.”

“The world is made up of two kinds of people: The ones who play the right stuff and the ones who are looking for the right stuff.”

“Mastery is available to everyone.”

“You will find yourself far more free and powerful if you assume that all the notes you play are the most beautiful sounds you’ve ever heard.”

“Mastery is playing whatever you’re capable of playing ... every time ... without thinking.”
