    Keen observation. Yes, if auditions, performances, chamber music, etc. all feel quite different, then the profile will tend to be more helpful if you focus on one specific type of situation when answering the questions. So if, for instance, you’d like to see your profile for auditions, think only of auditions in your recent past when answering questions. Or if you are more interested in orchestral situations, then think of those performances when responding to the questions.

    You could even take the PSI multiple times, and print one out for each type of performance.

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.
