Hi, I'm Susanna
I believe that we can maximize improvement and enjoy the journey of being a practicing musician. The journey is what it's all about.
I think and write about the craft of practice and all of its paradoxes.
I research and present on data-driven, technology-enhanced practice, and the psychology of practice.
I love researching augmented music practice and experiment with apps, virtual reality, and wearables.
I am interested in cultivating "what if" practice, the kind of practice that is stimulating, daring, surprising, and deeply satisfying.
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 at some point. I just want to help musicians of all stripes connect to their passion for music and feel empowered through their practice.
