Hi, Jon Harnum here. Proud Alaskan, multi-instrumentalist, and author of six music-related books. I've got over 30 years playing and 20 years of teaching under my belt, including a PhD in music education from Northwestern University. I play mostly trumpet and guitar, write, and teach.

My fifth music book The Practice of Practice, was published in May, 2014, thanks to 154 awesome Kickstarter backers. My latest book, Practice Like This was published in June, 2015.

Since 2001, I've given away well over a million copies of my books for free to students all over the world. You can get one for yourself at www.sol-ut.com.
