I've read several books on the subject including Charles Cooke's PLAYING THE PIANO FOR PLEASURE which is one I highty recommend for technical advice but, CONFIDENT MUSIC PERFORMANCE concerns itself also with the Human and emotional aspects of the less confident performer. Barbara let's you know that you have a gift to be shared; big or small and that, we love the piano. We all can't be prodigies, and are not faultless machines. I for one, think this is a GREAT book because it recognizes the struggle we have, being Human and Amateurs, competing with Electronic Perfection. I wish I would have Barbara as my teacher 50 years ago! DJK
