Janek Gwizdala Releases “From Practice to Performance” Instructional Book
Janek Gwizdala has published a new book called From Practice to Performance that is written to translate your woodshedding to the stage. Split into two parts, the book walks you through how to actually utilize all the things you learn.
“The first [part] includes 30 exercises in all twelve keys, plus an in-depth look at how to construct a productive practice schedule utilizing this new vocabulary,” the book description explains. “Part Two puts these exercises into context, explaining precisely how to use them over various chord changes, with harmonic analysis and specialized tips from world-renowned bassist Janek Gwizdala. From Practice to Performance will not only transform your technique, your vocabulary, and how you practice, but it will revolutionize how effectively you can turn your hard work into real results as a performer.”
Purchasing From Practice to Performance includes a video masterclass on the book’s content plus play-alongs to put the concepts to work. Each exercise is written in music notation with tablature.
