    Recording yourself can be painful, but incredibly valuable. And it’s really only painful if we use it to judge how good/bad we sound. But if you can use it instead to simply identify what to prioritize working on, it can feel a bit better.

    Didn’t realize Rubik’s Cube competitions existed! Sounds very cool. I imagine you could indeed use concepts from the course to practice performing in this setting, and then transfer what you learn over to piano.

    Hope the master class went well!


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.
