Your practice personality is
The Analytic Genius! 

Curious + Detailed + Organized

Just like the snake plant, you have it all together. You don't need a lot of attention from others-- in fact, you thrive on your own. You love to work strategically, and you always have a practice plan and know exactly what you’ll accomplish by the time you’re finished working.

People think that's weird, but whatever.

You tend to get your work done before everyone else. You always want to know WHY something doesn’t work, and you’re always looking for a better way to do things.

You love score study and probably know more about harmony than anyone besides your theory professor (and even then...)

You make endless notes on your part, sometimes in different colors, so you don’t forget anything important.

You tend to be extremely self-critical, but you see it as honesty.

 

And just who am I?!

Cory Barger.png

My name is Cory, and I'm the founder of Practice Happier, where I teach musicians just like you how to get results from their practice without spending 6 hours a day working in frustration. I’m also the principal bassoonist with the filarmónica de Boca del Rio, a collector of passport stamps, and an insufferable coffee snob. 

I’ve been around the block enough to know that there are a lot of ways for musicians to lose their motivation, or straight up their enjoyment of music. I’m tired of the expectation that we need to work all the time and prioritize music above everything in our lives, or that we need to feel terrible about ourselves to stay motivated. I believe we can make this a better career, and that starts in the practice room. 

So What's next?
