    Hi Matei,

    Good question! Yeah, Quiet Eye is really more about getting centered before executing a specific skill, and indicative of a moment of mental quiet, so I don’t know what it’ll be as useful during one’s performance. That’s where the attention control stuff in Lesson 4 (focus) comes into play.

    But as you say, it could be something that could work in a rest before an exposed entrance, or difficult passage during which you take a moment to get re-centered.


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.
