PracticeMind is a four-part pedagogical method book that will transform the way you practice and perform. With a primary focus on stringed instruments, PracticeMind guides you on your path toward string instrument mastery through the Complete Practice Model. Co-authors Hans Jørgen Jensen and Oleksander Mycyk have authored this book for all advanced string players and have filled it with research-backed practice techniques and methods that will dramatically improve your performance results. Each chapter contains either musical examples from the repertory or mental and instrumental exercises to incorporate into your own personalized planning and practice routine. The first section of the book, The Practice Mind, delves into topics related to the mental, motivational, and psychological aspects of learning. The metacognitive learning cycle is presented in The Plan, the second section of the book, and the chapters within are focused on topics such as goal setting and practice planning. The chapters in the Implement part explore the active part of practicing and the successful techniques that are applied in the practice sessions. The final section of the book, Evaluate, consists of chapters that are focused on evaluating all aspects of practice- and performance-related issues. This new release from Ovation Press is the definitive guide to developing your practice mind. Through the many music examples, practice exercises and beautiful full color illustrations PracticeMind will inspire and motivate your journey to superior technical mastery and greater freedom of artistic expression in the practice room, the stage and beyond.
