New musicality video:
Mindfulness can transform your effectiveness and enjoyment as a musician because it’s so often our automatic thoughts which slow us down, hold us back and trip us up. http://musicalitypodcast.com/25
Mindfulness isn’t just for buddhist monks; for musicians, mindset is just as important as your chops. Stewing on your mistakes and thinking pessimistically about your progress aren’t just bad for your brain – they can have a real hindrance on your actual progress.
In this episode, we discuss how mindfulness can help you ignore that negative little voice and focus on your playing.
