Learning to play a musical instrument can be fun, but also quite a burden at times. Young people not only have to find time to practice in the midst of their super-busy schedules. They also have to deal with such tricky problems as taming performance jitters, handling pesky peers, mastering challenging pieces, preparing for rigorous competitions, and dealing with demanding conductors. This lively, highly accessible book will help young people with some of the difficulties involved in learning a new instrument. It is filled with practical tips from more experienced teens and from well-known professional musicians. Numerous studies have demonstrated that children relate much better to advice from an age group closer to their own. That is why 150 teens from renowned musical programs, such as the Juilliard School's Pre-College Program and Boston University's Tanglewood Institute--offer pointers on coping with the various problems they encountered at an earlier age. Both youngsters and adults will also benefit from the practical advice given by nineteen professional musicians, including Wynton Marsalis, Paula Robison, James Galway, Andre Watts, Joshua Bell, and Evelyn Glennie. They tell us how they tackled these same problems when they were kids, and how they handle them today. An extensive resource guide at the end of the book, complete with web address listings, both directs readers to sources of additional help and helps them in their exploration of the world of music. If you are the parent of a child with musical ability, or if your son or daughter is trying to master a musical instrument, this book is the kind of gift that will save a lot of headaches for both you and your youngsters.

This wonderful book encourages kids and parents to relax and enjoy the experience of learning to play music. It faces every issue head-on and reduces each one to workable shape. Whether it's performance nerves or just utter boredom with repetition, the book presents lively, enjoyable re-takes bound to make a parent appreciate what every musical kid is going through while at the same time opening the eyes of the student to the fact that even if these are the necessities of musical study, they can be a lot of fun!!

The advice is true, but not true for all musicians all the time. So you need to pick and choose what's good for you and decide what's not so good for you. The thing I like the best is that it has real data from real musicians, kids and pros, who tell how they handle and handled common problems like boring practice, performance jitters, bad teachers, horrible conductors, out of tune instruments and out of tune friends, time pressures, and so forth. What worked for these people might work for you. The glossary is skimmpy and the index deficient, but who cares. The book itself is what counts and it is interesting, fast and fun to read, with important insights and hints to help you get better at what you play.

What a wonderful book for young students (and older students!) I teach private trumpet lessons to students ranging in age from 10 to 18 and they all enjoyed looking at it while waiting for their lesson to begin. Lots of great tips and like the title suggests a "Survival Guide".
BRAVO !!

This book is filled with practical easy to read information about what it means to learn music. As a music teacher, I find this book to be a great tool for parents and students. It teaches the basic aspects of what is involved in learning a musical instrument. It is also written on a level that schoolage students can understand. I found it to be simple to read, yet very informative and enjoyable. I am going to recomend it to my students - especially the Jr. High students who seem to have lost motivation. I may even assign them chapters to read and intergrate it into my lessons.

This is a nice book. I wish I could get a class set for my HS music classes to see. It is easy to read, and has nice info.
Very clear if a bit repetitive, but really... I have to say the same things to my students 8000 time in 2000 different ways before it sinks in for some... so I get it!
