If you are only focusing on your work in the practice room, you're missing out on a heck of a lot of ways to improve and achieve the highest possible levels of performance.
As a musician you are more than a technician. It's so much more than pressing the right keys or spot on the string, getting your air or bow moving correctly, hitting the right notes at the right time.
You also have to:
hit the right emotional "chord" in the music
know how to communicate the story or the emotions in the music effectively
have the tools to step on stage with bravery
develop both mental and physical resilience
keep up your physical strength and agility to bring power to your playing (and prevent injury)
understand how the music world is changing
know your strengths across categories
and develop the skills to position yourself for success.
This WHOLE YOU WHEEL shows the various ways you can approach who you are as a musician!
When you bring the totality of who you are to the game, you are empowered to achieve your full potential of passion and proficiency.
You might well already know this. Either from your teachers, learning it in real life, or the ever-growing musician wellness and entrepreneurship resources crowding the internet. The WHAT isn't hard to figure out.
It's the putting-it-into-action, the HOW that can be challenging. Big question mark. Stumped.
This is our mission at Music360: to help and empower you with the HOW
We believe everyone has something special to contribute and carries a unique gift that the world needs
We know it takes support to show up for yourself, step out of the doubt and turn hesitation into action
We design programs to help you evolve faster and adopt a practice that makes you confident in the creative work you are doing
We build support into the fabric of Music360 so the “I'm not ready” and “But what will they say” voices don't the the light of day
We build community into the programs for an environment of positive reinforcement and togetherness!
This summer is a great time to plan out the HOW and develop some routines, not just for the practice room YOU, but the out in the real world YOU!
