BECOMING THE INSTRUMENT: Lessons on Self-Mastery from Music to Life.

Kenny Werner has been a world-class pianist and composer for more than 40 years. His prolific output of compositions, recordings and publications continues to impact audiences around the globe.

Jazz musicians know him for his landmark 1996 book Effortless Mastery, Liberating the Master Musician Within, and he has since created videos, articles and lectured internationally on how musicians, artists and businesspeople can allow their ‘master creator’ within to lift their performance to its highest level.

Awarded a 2010 Guggenheim Fellowship Award for his seminal work No Beginning, No End, he has worked with a Who’s Who of jazz greats, including Dizzy Gillespie, Stan Getz, Marian McPartland, Joe Lovano, Pat Metheny, Lou Rawls and Bill Frisell.

The New York Times called Werner “a pianist who tempers fearsome technique with a questing spiritualism,” while Jazz Weekly said his “touch on the piano is as soft as a ripe banana, just ready for the squeezing. A real delicate delight here.”
