“When I was an undergrad at Oberlin, I was a really serious musician practicing all the time. And musicians never really have enough time to practice. No matter how many hours you have, you always wish you more time! And I was learning different techniques for how to practice more efficiently from my viola professor. And I was also learning things in my neuroscience classes that seemed very related. And I saw that when I applied these things from my neuroscience classes that I learned my music faster, that I was able to perform better. That what I learned kind of stuck with me better, and I didn’t lose it later. So that’s when I really started connecting these ideas in my mind that, oh, maybe I need to look into this research on learning to really understand how the brain learns so then I can apply it. What I started to see in myself and in my friends and my classmates was that a lot of us were using practice techniques that were sort of suboptimal… because they had been handed down over the generations, just out of, I don’t know, tradition or something. But they don’t actually match with how the brain learns. And so it became something that I became really passionate about sharing with other people, because I saw how well these ideas worked in my own practicing.” — Dr. Molly Gebrian Author of “Learn Faster, Perform Better”
