The Mind Over Finger Podcast

Mar 24, 2023

In this episode, I cover ways to incorporate more joy, presence, variety, and creativity in your practice.

Infusing joy and purpose in your preparation journey – having it alongside you day after day – will have a profound impact on both how well you prepare and how confident you feel on stage.
