It's been many months since I've updated this blog, but it's been for a good reason: This blog-to-book project is done, and the book, in both print and Kindle editions, is now available. Click here for Amazon's listing of By Heart: The Art of Memorizing Music.

If you've been following this blog, I can assure you that the final book product is superior to what was written at the blog. If you've just happened upon this blog, check out this blog's Table of Contents to get a general idea of what the book is about.

By Heart: the Art of Memorizing Music takes its readers from personal anecdote to practical skills for becoming a successful memorizing musician. If you are new to memorization, this book will give you the skills and techniques to get started with the process. You will carry those skills and techniques for the rest of your life. Even if you already have a solid memorization practice, this book will inspire some new or different approaches while also reinforcing your own convictions. 
 
Many of the techniques presented are good for any type of practice, even for the non-memorizing musician. Therefore, this book is also a useful foundational study of how to practice.
