The Listening Book is about rediscovering the power of listening as an instrument of self-discovery and personal transformation. By exploring our capacity for listening to sounds and for making music, we can awaken and release our full creative powers. Mathieu offers suggestions and encouragement on many aspects of music-making, and provides playful exercises to help readers appreciate the connection between sound, music, and everyday life.
"The Listening Book is a remarkable and exciting work...every page sings of the joys of life and music. Mathieu's observations and perceptions are insightful, incisive and often startling. This is a book that could change the way we view music and which would be of benefit to everyone from the casual listening or performer to the professional musician."--David N. Baker, Distinguished Professor of Music and Chairman, Jazz Department, Indiana University School of Music
