How to practice effectively…for just about anything

As a performing artist, we are always looking for new ways to improve and refine our craft. There are stumbling blocks along the path to mastery and for a lot of people, myself included, it happens in the practice room. A friend of mine from grad school, Annie Bosler, shared this video she created with along Don Greene for TedEd. Check out the video and then follow this link for the full lesson.

Congrats Annie and Don!

Don has also written a couple of great books on performance success and audition success. Be sure to check them out.
