    Thanks for the update, Cody! I like your decision-making/thought process/adjustments in May. All make sense to me. Love that you were able to record your performance, be in the moment while on stage, and then evaluate afterwards. Hope that’s something you’ll be able to do in subsequent open mics too. And I’m really glad to hear you found that your internal experience did not match what you saw and heard on the video afterwards. Indeed, it’s possible to perform really well even if we don’t feel like we’re exactly where we need to be on the inside.

    Have a great June!


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.
