About the Workshop
Effective Practicing: Make the Most of Your Time in the Woodshed
What – you don’t have 10,000 hours to practice? Never fear – you can still master that difficult song, and make dramatic improvements in your playing or singing in whatever time you do have. In this workshop John will introduce practice techniques that will help you learn quickly and deeply. He’ll discuss some common practicing mistakes to avoid. Concepts covered will apply to both solo and group practice. This will be an interactive workshop – bring your instrument and any questions about your particular musical challenges.
