Today is a special episode: I’m bringing you a conversation I had with Dr. Kimberly Hankins on her podcast, The Aligned Musician.
We had a great time covering a wide array of topics including practicing mindfully, self-compassion in practice and performance, and performance anxiety.
I love Kimberly and her work and I'm happy to have more opportunities to bring awareness to everything she does with the Aligned Musician here on the Mind Over Finger platform.
