This DVD is an amazingly effective and goes directly for the points at hand and their cure. Most of the content will seem revolutionary to most viewers, unless they are master musicians and live in that state.

The roots of real music creation are exposed and they are not what most think they are, but they are inside us and everyone has them. How to "get it' that we have them is the crux of the matter.

Kenny Werner goes into the most crucial factors that have to be faced to liberate the musician from what chains him/her to mediocrity and lack of brilliance or lack of confidence and stage fright.

Any artist who puts in practice the contents of this filmed presentation will find himself/ herself surrounded by an appreciative audience sooner or later. He/she will be doing what any great musician does and living as they do before , during and after the performances whether they are professionals or not.

I can guarantee it, being myself blessed with a very successful musical career, I recognized all of Kenny Werner's advice as supremely true, much of it I had to face early on in my career, and fortunately I was able to overcome those ego induced challenges present in all of us artists early on with the help of this fundamentally spiritual approach from the very same source which liberated the author of this DVD. An approach that always works, if one knows exactly what to do, and Kenny Werner does know.

But what about 90% of musicians? Now they have this DVD to help them do what it takes to be free to make one's brand of great music and to perform it with grace , depth, excitement, and beauty and most importantly : To have fun! while doing it. I can tell from my own experience: It does not get any better than that if you are a musician!

"Effortless Mastery" is a transformational book, and it was impossible for me to put it down once I started it.

10 of my most joyful discoveries from Kenny Werner's book:

1. I loved the autobiography, particularly growing up.
2. The mantras that "Music is easy" and "Music is effortless" and especially "Not caring leads to better playing."
3. This is a book for musicians, but really it is so much more. It's for everyone. I've ordered 4 copies of it from Amazon,and will be getting a lot more copies for future gifts.
4. The 5-minute rule I've been applying to my piano playing every day. I find that I'm so busy that I almost never play anymore. Now I'm playing at least 5 minutes a day, and it is pure joy. (Most of the time it turns into more than 5 minutes, but sometimes only 5, but I get up from the piano feeling very happy).
5. Kenny's idea of service and surrender through playing the piano. I really love that!
6. Kenny's affirmation "Every note I play is the most beautiful sound I've ever heard." Brilliant.
7. If I had to single out one statement that he wrote that, for me, was the most profound: "...we are all addicts in the sense that we are addicted to our limited vision of ourselves." (Very hard to pick just one).
8. The idea that we are all masters, and to celebrate each other's mastery.
9. The idea of "...retreating into the stillness to guide your technique into effortlessness."
10. Playing without overthinking, or, without thinking at all.

Thank you, Kenny Werner, for writing this brilliant book.

Been reading the book for sometime now. Just got the DVD and I must say that it's wonderful. Granted the production is not very slick, just a camcorder recording of Werner giving a lecture.

Nonetheless, it's great to see and hear him talking about his concepts. He's very funny and really has the whole room captivated the entire time.

If you're familiar w/the book, this will be more like a reminder of some of the concepts. If you've never read the book, it'll be a great introduction.

I thought my jazz skills were hopeless until: Kenny Werners Effortless Mastery book, DVD on it plus his new 2 and a half hour lesson on melody, harmony, and rhythm is really making me feel like I am learning something that I should have known all along.....cant wait to purchase his four steps.....my friend was witnessing the video and said it was "like a Buddhist music lesson". Like? It IS...... the best $50 I have ever spent - we shall see but as of today at age 38, even after conquering concert halls, churches, arenas, cruise ships, resorts and dive bars in Jersey, I am practicing again.... new material I haven't before and its exciting because I know I did not reach a plateau and my playing still has room for improvement..... I AM HAPPY ABOUT THIS -Gabe Toth

I was doing some exercises from Effortless Mastery. My wife asked "What are you doing?"

I said "I'm doing exercises from a book that says that if you know how to play the piano and you get your conscious mind out of the way, you can make much better music.

My wife, who had years of classical piano training, always was jealous of people who could improvise. She said, "I can do that." And she sat down at the piano and started to improvise.

So this book changed her life, even before she read it.
