Mental Practice

Hey home-sequestered musicians!

I wanted to share this very short article with you, quoting musicians about mental practice. Here is one of my favorite quotes:

When you are practising, you run a series of pictures through your mind as you play, and it is changing those pictures that changes the way you play. Accessing the ‘inner operating system’ through mental rehearsal, however, goes straight to the root of the issue with the most amazing ease and speed when compared to the experience of actually playing.

— Simon Fischer

Remember, nearly all of what we do is in our minds, and that informs our muscles. Enjoy!
