Hello,
Im seeking advice on building musical abilites like mozart or those famous guys. I was thinking of starting to play the piano(i know they say you gotta start young but that doesnt bother me) and i do have the Genius code with me, annd i was wondering if the Genius code could help me become like one of them. Or if it cant, could anyone give me a book on which i could improve my musical abilites? Thanks alot.

Dr Wenger says that to develop skills in music or any other physical skill then use the Borrowed Genius. He recommends doing the BG exersise followed by actually trying the skill you want to produce, then do more BG, then 5-10 minutes of more physical activity on the instrument. After about 90 minutes of doing this something inside you just flips over towards mastery. I've tried this with martial arts training with great success.

OK then, Photoread books on music theory, composition, and piano. You can use Borrowed Genius and Direct Learning for your piano playing, but you also have to have the theoretical foundation in order to rise above the rest.

You'll probably want perfect pitch, too, if you wanna be "like mozart or those famous guys." Oh, and practice will help, too. Lots of it.

everything they told you is readily available. Either in Einstein Factor or Genius Code.

Music theory will help you build chords, harmonies, melodies and stuff that will help you understand the music instead of mindlessly following what is written on the page.

I have the David Lucas Burge Perfect Pitch Ear Training Supercourse. It's quite good, and it's the only course I've seen that actually teaches it instead of just having you practice note naming. I believe it's at perfectpitch.com
