Practizma Practice Journal by Susanna Kein

Practizma Journal 

16 weeks of Empowerment, Efficiency & Joy for Practicing Musicians

Yes, you should be inspired and yes, you should feel joy as a practicing musician. Certainly not every single minute, but in large measure. And it's possible - by focusing on the process of practice in a different way.

Proven Strategies for getting more out of your practice sessions and feeling good about the musical journey is what the Practizma Journal? is all about: deliberate and joyful practice. I’m talking about the type of practice that leads both to the quickest progress and the most positive journey for musicians - what I call discovery practice. 

The book is a guided sequence. Every week includes four elements. Click on the elements to see sample pages.

  • Concrete goal setting page - can be used in the lesson setting as well

  • Reflection prompt - dig deep and get to know yourself

  • Action challenge - this is where the rubber meets the road!

  • Journal pages to track your practice

The journal is a culmination of a decade of journaling with my own students.  Every semester I came up with new prompts, sent PDF's to the local printer, and dove in with the whole studio.  Over the years, I discovered what was concepts were the most powerful and that's how the published Practizma Journal came to be.
