    Hi Amir,

    I do think you can problem-solve better and make more progress if your focus is devoted to what you’re working on, rather than being on the TV. But then again – and I can’t believe I’m saying this – if the TV motivates you to practice, and you end up gaining more overall (vs. being less motivated to practice and not practicing), then perhaps it’s better to keep at things with the TV?

    I think sitting while practicing can be ok. It does change things, but as long as you’re setting aside enough time to practice performing while standing, I think you’ll be ok when you need to perform standing.


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.
