By Heart: The Art of Memorizing Music
by Paul Cienniwa, foreword by Larry Thomas Bell, FAAR
2014


By Heart: the Art of Memorizing Music takes its readers from personal anecdote to practical skills for becoming a successful memorizing musician. If you are new to memorization, this book will give you the skills and techniques to get started with the process. You will carry those skills and techniques for the rest of your life. Even if you already have a solid memorization practice, this book will inspire some new or different approaches while also reinforcing your own convictions. 

Many of the techniques presented are good for any type of practice, even for the non-memorizing musician. Therefore, this book is also a useful foundational study of how to practice.
