This is an eBook written with Dr. Rodney Brim, a Psychologist, performance improvement expert, and multi-instrumentalist.
How you use your brain is ten times more important as how you use your fingers on your instrument, according to Dr Brim.
The critical importance of making playing and practicing FUN. Your brain learns best when you are having fun. We’ll show you some things you are probably not aware of that will make your practicing fun, and in the process, get you better more quickly.
The good and the bad of memorization. Learning your scales and routines is great for the left side of your brain, but not for the right side. You need both to improvise well. We’ll show you the purpose of each side and how to best reach the right balance.
How to practice. Most people don’t know how to spend their practice time effectively to meet their objectives. Good practice habits are so much more than simply putting in the time. Learn the right and wrong ways to practice.
The power of your self-talk. How you talk to yourself is extremely influential to your success (and failure). You’ll learn how to get that negative self-talk in control, and how to do more of the positive self-talk.
