1) a feeling of empowerment, efficiency, and joy associated with practicing music.
2) a healthy state of being for practicing musicians, both physically and psychologically.
There is often inherent tension between efficiency, empowerment and joy, and that is as it should be. On the whole, however, they form a sort of three-legged stool. Inefficiency can crush our sense of empowerment, as there is no quicker way to feel untalented than progressing slowly. Without joy, how can we convince ourselves to practice again and again? Empowerment is necessary for taking on risk and getting outside of our comfort zone. All three qualities are a necessary component of practice for the long haul, and we must cultivate them and balance them in our daily work.
Develop your curiosity, discipline, creativity, daring, tenacity and zen.
Get serious with these four elements each week: goal setting, reflection prompt, action challenge , and journal pages to track your practice.
Get more out of lessons, make new friends, and enjoy the journey.
Practice in new ways, play for others, record yourself, and take stock in your progress.
Celebrate when you are done.

16 weeks of efficiency, empowerment & joy for musicians
Some of us feel uninspired, some of us feel lazy, and for some the relationship with practice has turned toxic. No matter which description fits you, you can dig your way out. Confidence is a like a muscle, we must exercise it. In fact I suggest hitting the confidence gym hard, 16 week's worth of hard. Wake us up, shake us up hard.
The Practizma Practice Journal is a guided sequence of goal setting, practice tracking, reflections, and action challenges designed to give your practicing a jolt.
