Are you tired of
stressful practice

Instead of paying attention to the nuance of the music, you’re feeling like a drone and hating every second.

You’ve been working on the same section for weeks now and you’re terrified to bring it back to your lesson AGAIN. It’s 8pm on Friday, your friends are all texting you, “Hey, come on, let’s go out! Your lesson isn’t until Monday!”

You really don’t think it’s going to improve over the weekend, but there’s no way you would be able to relax and have fun if you went out with your friends anyway.

And just who am I?

Hi, I'm Cory!

I help musicians like you learn to practice more effectively, efficiently, and with way less drama and anxiety. Working hard doesn’t have to mean suffering, and you deserve to thrive as a musician and as a person! I know that all of the expectations and messaging around a career in music are overwhelming sometimes-- I’ve got the repetitive strain injuries to show for it! I had to reimagine what my own practice routine could look like in order to find something sustainable for my own body and mind when I was 20 years old, and it’s something that I’m still working on. My mission is to help others find that path, too. It is possible to feel excited about music again.
