Beyond Practicing v3

Someone once said that “We don’t rise to the level of our expectations, we fall to the level of our training.”

I think there’s a lot to that saying, and I used to think that it meant I needed to practice more. But it turns out that often, improving one’s level of preparation has little to do with putting in more time.

It’s about using more effective and efficient practice strategies. And it’s about practicing specifically for pressure, and the unique demands of performance – which is a separate and unique challenge from just learning the notes. A challenge that involves managing nerves, getting into “the zone,” and building confidence.

In this course, you’ll start by learning a core set of research-based strategies to help maximize the effectiveness of your practice, but then you’ll go beyond regular practice, by adding in the mental skills that top athletes use to consistently perform at the highest level when it matters most.

There's an LIVE component too! (for educators)

If you’d like to explore some of the most essential skills and techniques in the course live, with a cohort of curious, thoughtful, supportive, and like-minded educators (and a few mildly irreverent or benevolently sarcastic folks mixed in to make sure we don’t get too serious), that’s also an option!

Starting Thursday, February 3rd, we’ll meet via Zoom once a week, and go through selected strategies related to effective practice, managing nerves, and achieving flow states under pressure. We’ll do some in-class playing experiments (don’t worry – you’ll be muted!), short weekly homework assignments, and small-group breakout sessions to help you integrate these new skills into your teaching.

This 6-week live course is normally $199, but is available at 50% off the regular cost when bundled with Beyond Practicing. For more details about the live course (and dates) CLICK HERE.
