creative practice recipes

I first created the Creative Practice Cards for my own students and for the Master Classes I give. Some colleges saw them and asked if I would publish them. Well, I do have 300 ideas in a file box and keep adding more. Why not turn all these ideas into Creative Practice Cards.
So, thank you dear friends, that is what I am doing.

I am interested in sharing the things I have learned and am continuing to learn. I am so grateful to all my wonderful teachers, past and present! Many of these things are not new. These are just my way of expressing and expanding upon some of these ideas that resonate for me, in a way I enjoy and that I have found helpful for students and myself.

The front of each Creative Practice Card is full of creative practice information, an inspirational quote, ideas and resources for more places to learn about the things presented and links to my website for free downloads of music and art-icles. On the back of each is a Practice Journal that includes a, to do list and a listening journal. If you are ordering the Premier Set of Creative Practice Cards, they are laminated and can be written on and erased with a wet/dry erase pen. They come with a pen and a in a poly envelope. The other Creative Practice Cards Sets are printed on a heavy card stock and on a metal ring. It is my hope that you will use these Creative Practice Cards for inspiration, information, to spice up your practice, to get curious and to create your own practice recipes. Please let me know
how you enjoy them.
