An inspirational collection of stories, very well-told. Provides an interesting window into the world of classical music ... but it's also great reading not just for musicians, but for anyone who's ever pursued or wants to pursue a difficult dream.

We're so impressed here at MajoringInMusic.com that we're posting an article about the book along with some video footage of the author discussing it. Prospective as well as current classical performance majors and their music schools really need to tune in to "Driven" and heed its wisdom. Classical music must be re-imagined and revitalized in order to keep the audiences coming once the older generations move on, and "Driven" offers insights into how this can and will happen.

Fantastic book that takes a look at the lives of young people trying to make it in classical music. You can't find these stories anywhere else.

Nick Romeo's DRIVEN is a fascinating and entertaining read. I say this not because I'm a fan of classical music, which I am, but because the six young musicians profiled in the book demand the reader's attention. A violinist, two pianists, an opera singer, a keyboardist, and a trumpeter literally leap off the pages with their display of talent and ambition. The author digs deeply into their diverse backgrounds, which range from an Asian American from Texas to a homeless Ukrainian girl. Romeo is particularly effective when describing the competitions that these prodigies enter, building suspense as the reader eagerly awaits the outcome. All have appeared on the popular PBS/NPR program "From the Top" and share the same goal, revitalizing classical music, whose demise with the death of the current elder generation has been predicted by some. With versatile young talent like this, I see no danger of that happening.
