Websites and blogs specialising in practice
Pete Cook’s Podcasts – British Jazz Musician Pete Cook’s blog features an excellent series of short video podcasts that make perfect sense – click here.
Jazz Advice – this is a highly enforced and useful resource. I recommend it to everyone – click here.
The Practice of Practice – excellent blog/website about practice by Jonathan Harnum – click here. Highly informed by research, Jonathan writes… “A lot of research and attention has been given lately to how world-class experts come to be so accomplished. Books like Talent is Overrated, and Malcolm Gladwell’s recent hit, Outliers also mentions some ideas about practice, though they are both short on practical advice. This blog is a forum for my own synthesis of this and other research about expertise and learning, but more specifically, how to practice in the best way possible”.
How To Practice – the website related to the above – click here.
Thomas West Music – another excellent site, check out the blog – click here.
Zen Guitar – link to website about Philip Sudo’s magnificent book about practice. Zen Guitar is for all musicians and a book that I most often recommend to students – click here.
