Episode Info:

Christine Carter is a clarinetist and music psychology researcher who is interested in effective practice. In this conversation, Christine describes how we can learn to accept and work with our very human tendencies to lose focus during practice by structuring our practice sessions in such a way that they provide the novelty and variety our brains crave. This not only makes practicing more effective, but also more engaging. We also talk about motivation and how, instead of relying on willpower, we can set up our schedules and environments to support work that is in line with our goals and values.
