“I love the genuine, open nature of this book, letting people reach within themselves to find a reaction to stimulus that comes from gentle, emotionally-driven suggestions, while letting them explore important fundamentals. This is the kind of book that could not only turn people into natural composers and creative artists, but also lets them have the freedom to explore without being worried about making mistakes. Above everything, this book is unpretentious and enjoyable.”
