    I can’t speak for my students, but for myself: I have an old iPad that ONLY has music-related apps on it. When I practice, it’s always there and always on airplane mode. That way I can use the helpful technology without getting distracted by other things. 🙂 I tell my students that if they are using their phones or tablets to assist practicing, they need to put it on airplane mode, or at least turn off notifications while they are working. 🙂

    Hope the semester is off to a good start!

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.
