    I’m not sure what the research says about this, but anecdotally, it seems that we can turn ourselves into more of a morning person even if it doesn’t initially feel quite so natural to us. I also think that you’re more likely to have success keeping a morning routine than a routine which interferes with competing priorities as it sounds an evening routine does for you. Though there’s something to be said for practicing performing at various times of the day, on a day-to-day basis, whatever allows for a more consistent and habitual routine is probably going to help you make the most of your time. Plus, there’s something cool about being up in the morning and getting stuff done before the day has really gotten started. It may take a while for it to feel more natural, but my two cents is that it’s worth making an effort to try it out!

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.
