Reseña del editor
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.

This book is based on Gallwey's quite successful title, The Inner Game of Tennis: The Classic Guide to the Mental Side of Peak Performance. What is striking and admirable is that Green didn't just write a knockoff cribbed from Gallwey's book. After meeting with Gallwey about the project, they decided Green should live with (and teach) the principles and then write the book. Three years later, Green was ready and this book is the result.
As you might guess, the book is about how to think about- and approach playing music and music practice. There is a lot of useful information in this little book, and it's clear that Green--a professional symphonic bass player and university teacher--knows what he's talking about and writes clearly about it.
He starts with an overview of Gallwey's approach, namely using the "Self 1" and "Self 2" aspects of our thinking. Green immediately points out that this doesn't necessarily conform to the popular "left-brain/right-brain," and other ideas from psychology (for more on this, read Pinker's good book, A Whole New Mind: Why Right-Brainers Will Rule the Future). S1 and S2 are simply a conceptual tool to help "describe the ways in which the incredibly complex human being is 'wired and programmed.'" (p. 17). Self 1 is the rational, analytical, judgmental self, while self 2 is more holistic, body-centered and emotive. Green shows how both selves are essential, but each has its place and role. Our culture focuses much more on S1, and Green takes us through ways to bring out the strengths inherent in S2. The first part of the book introduces us to "Inner Game" principles and how he's applied them to music.
One of the most valuable parts of the book for me was the advice throughout the book on awareness. Awareness not only as a musician, but especially as a teacher (Chapter 10), and the teacher's role in evoking deep awareness in students by avoiding the "Do this" approach and adopting the "Be aware of..." approach . Other valuable chapters for me were CH11: The Inner Game Listener; CH8: Coping with Obstacles; CH9: Improving the Quality of Musical Experience; and CH7: Letting Go.
The weaknesses of the book lie in its classically oriented, Western-art-music-is-best approach, though this is a minor concern as most of the principles in the book can be applied to any type of music. To be fair, this bias is, I think, not a result of any overt agenda on Green's part, and I'd bet his musical tastes are far-ranging and varied, but because of his own immersion in that tradition, his writing is bound to come off with a bit of this flavor. I found value in all but one of the chapters, CH 15: Improvisation, Composition, and Creativity, which gave shallow treatments of each subject. Putting all three of these complex and useful musical tools into one chapter does a disservice to the topics and the thoroughness of the rest of the book. In fact, each topic could easily support an entire chapter (or book!) of its own.
Despite these minor flaws, it's a great read for anyone interested in playing music, or anyone with a child interested in music. The book is rarely dry or pedantic and makes frequent use of real-world anecdotes to illustrate points. Using examples like this make the book an enjoyable read and may help the reader to apply these principles and philosophies to his or her own situation. The book has something for everyone: players of any level, parents of players, and teachers at any level. Highly recommended.
Have fun, and good luck with your practice!
