In case you missed “Jennifer’s 10-Day EASY Holiday Practice Challenge”, I thought I’d share some of the content from the emails here, including the daily “Food for Thought” ideas. This post is the first in a series of blogposts highlighting all 10 days!
Last month, more than 200 people joined “Jennifer’s 10-Day EASY Holiday Practice Challenge”, which was a huge success!
(Sign up for upcoming challenges here: >> Jennifer’s Practice Challenges.)
During the Challenge, I sent a daily email with “Food for Thought” and a “Practice Challenge”, both designed to keep practicing simple and engaging over the stressful holiday season.
Dozens of practice videos were shared in our special Facebook group, and a ton of constructive and loving feedback was shared to help each other reach our practice goals with ease. Some pretty moving personal breakthroughs were shared, too. This has become my favorite way to practice!
FOOD FOR THOUGHT #1
What’s Your WHY?
When there’s an activity that you carry out every single day over a long period of time, it’s easy to lose sight of WHY you’re doing it.
Today, let’s reconnect to our deepest purpose for practicing.
Why do you practice?
Why do you play your instrument/sing?
Why are you a musician?
What do you love most about music?
What do you love the most about your instrument (and that includes you singers, since YOU are your instrument)?
No need to answer these questions exhaustively. Just some food for thought to touch on, to get the creative practicing juices flowing in a meaningful way.
If your curiosity is piqued by today’s Food for Thought, you’ll want to know about my NEW ONLINE COURSE teaching “Effortless Music-Making!” – an introduction to The Art of Freedom and the Alexander Technique for Musicians.
