|"A very well done and extremely useful book. I am very pleased to have Lea's great book included in my ever growing arsenal of useful teaching tools. |
Lea has done a fabulous job of addressing both human physiology and mental approaches to Body Mapping with the intent of helping individual flute players discover the most relaxed and tension-free interaction between player and instrument."
