    Great question. If you get really comfortable with centering, you can certainly do a quick “recenter” in the middle of pieces if you have a rest, etc.

    However, the lesson on Focus is really devoted to this question of how do we keep things going once we’ve gotten off to a good start. If you’re starting to feel pretty good about openings of pieces, I think now would be a great time to go to the Focus lesson and get started with some of those skills and exercises.

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.
