The bestselling guide to improving musical performance

The Inner Game of Music is the battle that all musicians have to fight against elusive opponents such as nervousness, self-doubt and fear of failure. Using the world-famous Inner Game principles, developed by bestselling author Timothy Gallwey, acclaimed musician Barry Green explains the basic principles of 'natural learning' and shows how you can apply them to reach a new level of musical application and performance.

In precise, easy to understand language, Green and Gallwey explain how natural skills - such as awareness, trust and willpower - can be nurtured and enhanced. Through a series of tailored exercises The Inner Game of Music demonstrates the ways in which musicians can achieve exact intonations, artistic phrasing and improved technique. There are also chapters on ensemble playing, improvisation, composition and creativity, as well as listening skills - an essential part of the Inner Game.

Following a methodology with a proven track record for generations of aspiring and professional musicians, The Inner Game of Music is invaluable to anyone seriously interested in music, and is guaranteed to deliver positive results whether you are a student, teacher, performer, or simply an appreciative listener.

About the Author

Barry Green, a native Californian, served as Principal Bassist of the Cincinnati Symphony for twenty-eight years. As former Executive Director of the International Society of Bassists, he is currently directing a young bassist programme for the San Francisco Symphony Education Department, teaches privately at Stanley Intermediate in Lafayette and at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and has organised the Northern California Bass Club.

Since the age of fifteen, W. Timothy Gallwey has been fascinated with the problem of how human beings interfere with their own ability to achieve and learn. His search for practical ways to overcome mental obstacles and establish maximum performance has led to a number of books on such diverse subjects as sports, management and work. He lives in Los Angeles.
