Tipsy Tuesday: Let’s Get the Most Out of Practice Sessions

ID-10028390

Good morning east coast friends!  And good evening, my west coast night owls.  I know, I never post this late but technically it’s still Tuesday and there’s something I’ve been meaning to share with ya’ll.

The other week I found an informative article based upon a dissertation written by Dr. Christine Carter.  Not only is she a clarinetist and a teacher at Manhattan School of Music, she also researched a learning phenomenon called contextual interference.

Do you ever wonder why you can have a good practice session then struggle with the same material the next day? Check out the article on Bulletproof Musician, another one of my favorite resources.  The explanations are very eye opening and Carter’s suggestions aim to make practice sessions more efficient.

Alright, time for me to get some shut eye and finish up packing!
