Lost Secrets of Master Musicians: A Window Into Genius of Master Musicians
In this groundbreaking look into the world of "classical" music, David Jacobson interweaves his educative experiences at the Curtis Institute of Music with his quest to understand how performers such as Jascha Heifetz, Nathan Milstein, Vladimir Horowitz, and Glenn Gould achieved such unsurpassed levels of musical expression and technical skill. What were their "secret" techniques and musical insights? He explains in clear, precise, non-technical language, supplemented by color diagrams, photographs and annotated musical examples, the methods, paradigmatic shifts and musical approach of these masters which are essentially the same, yet, fundamentally different from what is taught by contemporary music teaching systems--such as those of Ivan Galamian and the Suzuki method (which is critically examined)--for string playing, orchestral instruments, piano and voice. His unique "Bel Canto Instrumental Technique’ will revolutionize (End the need for a conductor's presence!) and revitalize the art of classical music in general. Important reading for anyone concerned with the future of classical music and the training of classical musicians.

Happy Healthy . . . Dead: Why What You Think You Know About Aging Is Wrong and How To Get It Right
by Noelle Nelson, Ph.D.
Our time on Earth may be finite, but nowhere is it written that our last 10, 20 or 30 years must be spent in decline and misery! Why not make sure you´re on the right path, right now, that will bring you the most happiness, health and longevity? Want to live a long, happy life? Yes! Want to grow old? NO!! Let´s face it. You really can´t hope to experience a long, happy life without growing older. But here´s the problem: for most of us, our mental picture is not too pretty of life beyond (fill in the blank with whatever age you think is good). And over 80, 90 or 100? The image is even worse. Old age scares the heck out of us. Noelle Nelson shows you what sets apart those who are enjoying life in their later years from those who lament their every waking moment. It includes extensive scientific research proving how vital our current thoughts, emotions and attitudes are to our ability to experience a long, healthy future, plus real life examples of seniors living happily in their 80s, 90s and beyond. Finally, the book explains what you need to do to assure a long, fulfilling, healthy life.
