"As a teacher, I believe it is important to educate the whole musician. Frequently teachers and students alike get caught up in the mechanics of playing. Be sure to occasionally step back from the instrument and look at the big picture. Regular practice is the key to success when learning a string instrument so beginners who may need a little extra practice help can use The Musicians Practice Log."
- Heather Hanson, Cellist & SHAR Apprentice
"The Musician's Practice Planner belongs on every student's music stand."
- Frederica Von Stade, World Renowned Mezzo-Soprano and International Opera Star

- Branford Marsalis, Grammy Award Winning Saxophonist, Composer, and Producer

- Robert McDuffie, Grammy-nominated Concert Violin Soloist and NPR Commentator

- Eugenia Zukerman, Acclaimed Flute Soloist and CBS News Arts Correspondent
"I recommend this book to every musician, particularly students and teachers."
- Vincent Cichowicz, Legendary Chicago Symphony Trumpeter and Northwestern University Professor
"The Practice Planner can help you stay focused... by making you more conscious of how you're spending your practice time. I've been enjoying using this valuable tool."
