The Perfect Wrong Note
I am currently reading “The Perfect Wrong Note: Learning to Trust Your Musical Self” by William Westney. I have read quite a few books regarding teaching, learning, practicing, and performing music, and this book is one of the best. In this well written book, Westney addresses keeping vitality in one’s practicing and performing. He has great advice on the value of accepting a learning from mistakes. He offers a very useful sample practice routine. If you teach or perform music, I highly recommend this book.
