About

I love to practice and I love to help others figure out how to do it too. I'm not talking about boring, repetitive, frustrating practice. I'm talking about practice that makes a musician feel like Einstein...practice that makes a musician feel like a superhero...practice that makes a musician feel energized and excited to come back to the practice room again and again. 

I've been very active on social media, especially on Twitter, since 2010 because I've found it's an excellent place to talk about this passion of mine and to share what I have to offer to others out there who might not know where else to learn about the art of practicing. I've also figured out through the years of doing this and having a blog as well, how reluctant musicians are to talk about their own frustrations in the practice room. Because of a sense of shame, thinking they should automatically know how to practice, they struggle to approach me for help. But I don't want to give up! I want to keep offering up what I've learned to musicians of all instruments, at all stages, and of all ages because I think the skills and confidence learned in the practice room translate into all aspects of one's life. Practicing truly can transform a person!

I want to continue to offer my practice coaching and other related services to people who are willing and able to hire me but I also want to be able to continue offering my blog, livestreamed practice and sightreading sessions, tips, inspiration, and more to as many people as possible on social media. With over 7000 followers on Twitter, almost 700 on my business Facebook page, and growing audiences on YouTube and Instagram, it's the perfect platform to reach the most people. But all of these things take time and energy so it would also help to be earning a little bit of a support from lovely patrons like you! 

Feel free to check out my business webpage as well to learn a bit more about what I do and have to offer.

If you believe in what I'm doing, if you believe in the power of effective practicing, please consider sponsoring me. By doing that you'll also be helping other musicians gain a sense of confidence and pride in the practice room they may have never known could be possible. 

Thank you so much for reading and considering!
