Review:

This book is a rare example of clear, concise and useable information on music practice... If I read a better book on practice this year I'll be surprised!! (Mike Saville, HowToPractice.com)

the main strength of this book lies in the depth with which the author engages with the processes of practising and performing. The comprehensive way in which these topics are covered provides students with clear guidance to support many aspects of their musicianship. (Noola Griffiths, British Journal of Music Education)

One of the most important books on musicianship in recent decades. (Joseph Docksey, Director, Lamont School of Music)

A masterful work, which I believe will quickly be recognized as the finest guide to the art of musical performance produced by our generation. (Kevin Lawrence, Artistic Director, Green Mountain Chamber Music Festival, Professor of Violin, University of North Carolina School of the Arts)

I predict that The Musician's Way will be an instant classic. It is the most useful, comprehensive book I have ever read on developing the skills of a successful performer. Every music lover - student, professional, amateur, and teacher alike - should own this book. (Jeffrey Solow, Professor of Cello, Temple University President, American String Teachers Association)

An outstanding accomplishment... The Musician's Way should be on the shelf of every aspiring professional musician and every serious music educator. (Clavier Companion)

Klickstein covers the gamut of issues, tips, and ideas that make up the world of the serious musician... Students hunger for this kind of knowledge. (Notes)

Klickstein takes a common-sense approach and works his way through techniques for improving every aspect of a performer's life, from ways to memorise a piece to dealing with performance anxiety... It's all very well thought through and an interesting read. (The Strad)

A comprehensive guidebook from an experienced, insightful musician... You must read this book. (Stringendo)

A wonderful tool for all aspiring musicians (Chad Criswell, MusicEdMagic.com)
