Los Angeles, CA—October 2010 - Alfred Music Publishing, the leader in educational music publishing since 1922 and the official print publisher of thousands of popular artists, is proud to disrtibute the unabridged audio book version to The Music Lesson, by Grammy® award-winning musical icon and legendary bassist Victor Wooten
The Music Lesson is an inspiring parable of music, life, and the difference between playing all the right notes and feeling them. It is the story of a struggling young musician who wants music to be his life, and who wants his life to be great. Then, from nowhere it seems, a teacher arrives. Part musical genius, part philosopher, part eccentric wise man, the teacher guides the young musician on a spiritual journey and shows him that the gifts we get from music mirror those from life, and every movement, phrase, and chord has its own meaning.
This seven-disc audio book casts the various characters in the story by many of the real people that inspired them. In addition, it features new, original music written by Wooten and a bonus performance by the original Bela Fleck and the Flecktones
