088 Efficient Practice Planning with Dr. Renée-Paule Gauthier

This winter, I’m bringing you a series of four episodes about building your amazing practice. In this series, I'll be covering many of the components that I think are essential in having a great productive practice session.  At least, for me!

I'll be talking about planning and scheduling, priming for an efficient practice, building a great warmup regimen, and, finally, I’ll take you through my favorite practice session breakdown.

This episode is all about planning and scheduling efficiently for better results.  I share strategies on how to plan for productive practice and how to schedule it in a way that maximizes your time so you can operate at the highest level possible.


THE MUSIC MASTERY EXPERIENCE will be back in June 2021!  This is my LIFE CHANGING, highly personalized group coaching program where I show you how to implement mindful & effective practice techniques, how to make them habits, and how to get RESULTS.
