The Mind Over Finger Podcast

Aug 31, 2022

Welcome to Gear Up for Fall 22, a special series of five episodes that brings you everything you need to gear up for an amazing new season of music-making!

We cover everything from setting goals to getting you set up for success by helping build your amazing practice regimen.


PART 3 - Priming Power

In this episode 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!)
