    Oops, sorry for missing this. A couple thoughts:

    1. The habit issue is an interesting one. There are actually some protocols for rapid habit correction that can be interesting to try. I’ve written about them a tiny bit on the blog (e.g. amplification of error, old way/new way), but haven’t really done a deep dive. Molly Gebrian is coming out with a book in 2023, and she does do a deeper dive into this. You might be interested in checking this out when it’s released.

    2. Yes – keeping track of problems/solutions on paper is not ideal after a while. I know folks will use various online systems like spreadsheets, etc., but that can have its own downsides as well…

    3. That sounds like a perfect balance of referring to notes and practicing retrieval (first runthrough without referring to notes, but referring to notes after the runthrough, before you start practicing).

    4. A master solutions file sounds like a terrific project. Sounds like the sort of thing that would work well if structured as a database…

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.
