Effortless Mastery: Liberating the Master Musician Within is a book for any musician who finds themselves having reached a plateau in their development. Werner, a masterful jazz pianist in his own right, uses his own life story and experiences to explore the barriers to creativity and mastery of music, and in the process reveals that "Mastery is available to everyone," providing practical, detailed ways to move towards greater confidence and proficiency in any endeavor. While Werner is a musician, the concepts presented are for every profession or life-style where there is a need for free-flowing, effortless thinking. 

Note: The original book includes an audio CD of meditations narrated by Kenny to help the musician reach a place of relaxed focus. These meditations are available as a free download directly from Kenny Werner's website at http://kennywerner.com/wp-content/uploads/Effortless_Mastery_Tracks.zip


  • Evoloution of music education

    By OK.Smith
    This book is a functional text which will nurture the abilities of many musicians for generations to come. It prepares the student by exposing the "self" as the greatest obstacle to learning and guides the reader to overcome it.
  • Interesting, but contradictory.

    By Vandaris
    Though many of his thoughts, ideas, and experiences are both relatable to me as a musician, his logic and philosophy don't really hang together as a complete thought.
  • Excellents

    By Daftzomb
    This book helped me reach a level of excel in the sense of cents. Musical or currency? That's for you to find out...and when you do, please write a review because while I admire this book, I've not yet read it. So if you're going to rate it leave a dang review explaining the 5 or even 1 star rating you've given this. A 5 star review means it has helped you achieve incredible facility and creativeness. A 1 star meaning its practically fraudulent. Whatever your case, both are deserving of a review!!!
