    Hey Noa,

    I also habe a question about the differente between process cues and clear intention:

    Do I actually have to say stuff to me? Because however hard I’m thinking, I can’t find a line that really covers the “what”. For example “I’m going to nail the Mozart” doesn’t sound really convincing to me… But is it possible to first hear what I want it it sound like and then feel how it should feel if I’m perfectly relaxed and focus? Like I would do in mental practice? And can this be a combined step? I always think that it takes quite long to hear the music, then do the breathing, find the center,… and then hear it again…


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.
