The Mind Over Finger Podcast

Feb 19, 2021

In this second episode of my series on building an amazing practice routine I share my favorite tips about a powerful ritual that can transform the results you get in the practice room: PRIMING.

When we’re priming, we prepare the body and mind to be fully engaged and productive.

By setting up a priming ritual before a practice session, you can significantly affect your level of presence and focus.  The pay off?  Get more results during your practice.

A total game changer!

(I also squeeze in a little gift at the end: my priming guided visualization exercise!)





Frustrated with your playing?  Unsatisfied with you career?  Ready for a change?
