Bringing Music to Life
- GIA Publications
World-class bassist and best-selling author Barry Green has spent his life learning and showing others how to bring music to life. In this innovative, imaginative text, he shares what he has discovered since his groundbreaking book, The Inner Game of Music, inspired musicians the world over to reach their potential in performance and learning. Three distinct sections delve deeply into the methodology, techniques, and inspiration required to energize and enliven music making for amateurs and professionals alike. Green reaches inside to recount life-changing experiences, and outside to friends and fellow musicians who have discovered how to create joy and excitement in performance. A stimulating series of activities and reflections using YouTube video clips helps the reader/teacher to sing, conduct, play, move and shake with violinist Joshua Bell, conductor Leonard Bernstein and even with Martin Luther King Jr. during his "I Have A Dream" speech.
