Do you ever feel lost when you pick up your fiddle, like you don’t know what to practice? Or do you feel like your practice sessions don’t help you in the way you need? These are common problems, but they’re solvable. Enter practice coaching.
Think of it like a class at the gym: you do your own workout, but the instructor’s at the front of the room, guiding you through that workout with a unique flow and ease. In these sessions, you’ll get your own practice time in. I’ll be here practicing alongside you and helping you develop flow, efficiency, and intuition. We’ll practice how to solve your own practice problems so that when you practice alone, you always know what to do.
These coaching sessions are different than most classes you’ll find here: instead of adding more material to your plate, I designed these practice sessions to take things off of it. They’ll add ease, effectiveness, and enjoyment to your practices without giving you more material to learn.
Together, we’ll practice the most fundamental musical skill anyone can have: how to practice. Not good timing, not a good ear, but good practice skills. Those skills are the missing link when you feel stuck, when you’re moving slowly, when you’re not getting as much out of lessons as you want. It’s not about you—it’s about your practice.
Here’s what each session will give you:
- A detailed, two-week practice plan specific to what you’re learning in Fiddle School
- An in-depth, guided warm up that you can add and adapt to each of your future practices
- Detailed examples and real-time guidance to work through trouble spots in your songs
- Performance practice to pull it all together
- A no-pressure setting to practice practicing the Fiddle School way
