Practizma Practice Journal
A one-of-a kind workbook for musicians

Packed with research based strategies to turn your ho-hum practice into extraordinary practice....

Helps you develop your curiosity, discipline, creativity, daring, tenacity and zen.

Four weekly elements for bad-assery in the practice room: goal setting, reflection prompt, action challenge, and journal pages to track your practice.
Curious? See more details here. You can also download the introductory chapter of the journal for free - this gives you an idea of what it's all about. 

Clipza App (IOS)

Currently in development!

I got sick and tired of clumsy recording options for practice, so I got together with my friend Randall to code our own.

Clipza lets you swipe left to replay what you just played with one gesture.  Or, tap the screen once and it will save the last 30 or more seconds for you to review later.

We think it's pretty cool, but we are still working out bugs and getting it ready for the IOS app store.

Sign up for my Practice Dojo Newsletter if you want to be notified when it's ready. Newsletter comes out once a month.

about me
I'm the author of the Practizma Practice Journal.
My mission is to make practice delightful, 
insightful, and healthy.

I think and write about the craft of
practiceand all of its paradoxes.

I research and present on data-driven, technology-
enhanced practice, and the psychology of practice.

I love augmented music practice and experimenting
with apps, virtual reality, and wearables. Anything to 
to spice up the practice room.

I teach empowerment in practice workshops.

I create practice blitz videos for string players on YouTube.

I am interested in cultivating "what if" practice, the kind of practice that is stimulating, daring,
surprising, and deeply satisfying.  I think we can make ourselves happy with practice, if done right.

I'm not interested in the subject of how to "nail the audition" or "get the gig", although all of that happens
when we are doing the right kind of practice.  I just want to help musicians of all stripes connect to their passion. I want you to have a good time.

During the daytime I'm a professor, at night a violinist. Here's my musical bio.
