What type of practice makes a musician perfect? What sort of child is most likely to succeed on a musical instrument? What practice strategies yield the fastest improvement in skills such as sight-reading, memorization, and intonation? Scientific and psychological research can offer answers to these and other questions that musicians face every day. In The Science and Psychology of Music Performance, Richard Parncutt and Gary McPherson assemble relevant current research findings and make them accessible to musicians and music educators. This book describes new approaches to teaching music, learning music, and making music at all educational and skill levels. Each chapter represents the collaboration between a music researcher (usually a music psychologist) and a performer or music educator. This combination of expertise results in excellent practical advice. Readers will learn, for example, that they are in the majority (57%) if they experience rapid heartbeat before performances; the chapter devoted to performance anxiety will help them decide whether beta-blocker medication, hypnotherapy, or the Alexander Technique of relaxation might alleviate their stage fright. Another chapter outlines a step-by-step method for introducing children to musical notation, firmly based on research in cognitive development. Altogether, the 21 chapters cover the personal, environmental, and acoustical influences that shape the learning and performance of music.

Reach for the Top: The Musician's Guide to Health, Wealth and Success by Dr. Timothy Jameson, (author of Repetitive Strain Injuries: Alternative Treatments and Prevention) is a book specifically geared towards helping any musician master their mental, physical and spiritual well-being... Are you considering a career as a musical artist? Are you a musician or vocalist reaching a plateau in your career? Do you have a nagging injury that is holding you back from excelling in your musicianship? Are you looking for the secret clues that the highly successful musicians already know? Then this is the book for you! This book is a summary of what Dr. Timothy Jameson has learned about the amazing attributes of the human mind, body, and soul over his 20+year career as a Doctor of Chiropractic and as a musician working week after week as a music director and worship pastor of his church. Dr. Jameson has spent many years working intimately with musicians, caring for human beings dealing with injuries, emotional stress, performance stress, and addictions. Through that time, Dr. Jameson has thoroughly enjoyed providing wellness enhancement, encouragement, and relief from debilitating injuries. This book was the result of one of my greatest joys; seeing a musician s career saved by chiropractic, and then allowed to flourish due to positive constructive coaching to work on the mental aspect of the game. Dr. Jameson says: I created this book in order that you can achieve a level of success that you only dreamed for your career. This book will set in motion your desires to reach the top! It is an action-oriented book that will guide you in your path to wholeness, wellness, and success. I believe it will be a workbook that you will keep in your travel bag, or next to your bed, so you can constantly revisit your goals, affirmations, and action steps to achieve the results you have desired for your life. I also created this book so that you can achieve a level of physical wellness that will allow you to perform music throughout your entire life. Musicians must care for their bodies to engage in the sport of music. In the pages that follow you will receive advice in everything from nutritional intake, stretching, exercises and breathing techniques to enhance your musicianship. I pray that this book encourages you to just GO FOR IT and not hold back due to fears or the what ifs. Set a path for greatness and then do not hold back even though the trail may be full of potholes, diversions, and roadblocks. You can do it! Thank you for reading this book, and may you be blessed by the information presented in the pages of 'Reach for the Top'.
