This is the AUDIO version of the book, read by Bruce Gandy, with an introduction by Peter Aumonier. Makes it easy to take in the information when you don't have the time to sit down and read!
An easy-to-hear, non-statistical guide to “Delivering Your Own Awesome” in music, sport and other competitive aspects of life, this book provides an understanding of what performance actually is by outlining four key steps: practice, rehearsal, performance and, finally, moving forward.
Bruce Gandy’s experiences as a music performer, competitor and, more importantly, a coach have helped developed the advice in this book. He has played in hundreds of performances and competitions around the world and coached musicians at all levels and ages for forty years. With all of this experience, Bruce understands that conquering the fear of failure is perhaps the biggest challenge people face. Using his clearly outlined steps, readers will elevate their own performance level.
“Preparation and opportunity - a personal journey. Read and understand the simple and effective one-eighty method and you will unlock your own performance aspirations.”
Bruce Gandy is an all-round professional musician. Over almost forty years, he has performed, composed four books of music, and taught workshops in many parts of the world. For two decades he has competed at a World Top 10 level. But his greatest passion is teaching others to experience the joy of live performance and to perform at their best. He has pioneered many teaching ideas on the internet and is a globally in-demand teacher, leading workshops through Skype and other internet platforms. Bruce’s “Clubhouse Sessions” draw players to his home for live classical music sessions, and also welcome players for the virtual class, delivering learning and performance tips to players from across North America, Hawaii, Britain and Europe, the Far East, and Australia. Writing all of these experiences down in Performance: Delivering Your Own Awesome was the next logical step in reaching even more people.
