Could you get double the progress from half as much practice?
…In just 14 days
- You could make much faster progress from the same amount of practice time (or keep the same results but practice much less. You choose)
- You could share your musical ideas freely and clearly. Unrestrained by technical barriers
- You had a clear path to follow – leaving you feeling relaxed and confident that you're getting full value for all the effort you put in
- Every single day you moved another step closer to achieving your true musical potential
- You were a more competent, more confident musician
I know those things may sound far-fetched to you, and you might even be a bit sceptical.
But it all becomes possible when you understand that HOW you practice is even more important than WHAT you practice…
Below, I'm going to explain precisely how I and many of my students have experienced vastly accelerated progress in our music. Including breaking through blocks that had held us back for months or even years.
And this wasn't the result of hours and hours of intense training. It required less than half an hour a day for 2 weeks.
I’m not saying you have to do this every day for the rest of your life. I just want you to do it for 14 days.
If that’s a commitment you think you could make, then I want to keep talking to you.
So, if you've tried all the different programmes and teaching methods out there – and nothing has delivered epic progress.
Or if you've come up against some barriers that you...
Just. Can't. Break. Through.
No matter how hard you try...
I'm about to show you solid proof that you can turn all this around in just a couple of weeks.
You don't need to add in any complicated new techniques.
What you're about to see is a system that goes in completely the opposite direction.
It's not about giving you MORE things to do. It helps you fix what's already there by removing the problems that hold you back.
As a result, it's quicker and easier to implement than other approaches. And, for the vast majority of musicians, it gets bigger results too.
But first, I need to tell you a quick story...
Back when I gave regular guitar lessons, a lot of them were group classes.
Although I didn't realise it at the time, this was a huge privilege.
It let me observe something that most music teachers never get to see… How my students actually practiced when they didn’t think I was standing over them, watching their every move.
I noticed something interesting and unexpected.
The biggest problems weren't issues with the material the students were working on.
They were to do with HOW they went about practising.
Each time I saw a problem like this, I'd step in and fix it. And, 9 times out of 10, they'd take a massive step forward straight away.
It should have been intensely satisfying. Instead, it was frustrating.
I could sense that there was an underlying principle here.
But I could only fix students one by one. And I could only fix the mistakes that they made right in front of me.
I knew there were lots of other issues that I wasn't getting a chance to fix.
The big a-ha moment didn't come until I travelled to study with a world class jazz guitarist for a few days.
About 15 other pro musicians were also there to learn. And, before an hour had gone by, the teacher was bombarding us all with blunt comments about how our practice was letting us down and needed to change.
At first, this was painful...
("My practice is sub-standard? But I TEACH this stuff!")
Until, gradually, I realised I'd been given a massive gift.
The problems that the group of pros had just been called out on were EXACTLY the same ones that I'd been correcting in my students.
I wasn't looking at a jumbled mess of individual problems anymore... I'd found a set of universal PRINCIPLES.
This gave me almost everything I needed to create a system that any musician can use to maximise the results from their practice time.
In case you don’t know me already, I’m Mark Morley-Fletcher – a jazz guitarist and educator. I'll show you the system (and tell you about the one missing piece of the puzzle) in just a minute.
But first, I want to share with you the big ideas I discovered that hold the secret to getting way more from your practice.
There is no such thing as "talent"
Practice is really the key to making progress as a musician.
It's not about "talent". Or that some people are just born to be great musicians while others aren't.
Everyone has the ability to learn all the skills they need... IF they practice in the right way.
One of the most famous violin teachers of all time, Ivan Galamian, said about well-known musicians:
"In almost every case the success of their entire career was dependent on the quality of their practicing."
And the scientific research agrees.
Study after study has identified the ability to engage in high-quality practice as the key reason why some musicians reach much higher levels than others.
As the Harvard Business Review summed it up:
"Consistently and overwhelmingly, the evidence showed that experts are always made, not born."
Talent didn't come into it.
And sheer volume of practice didn't count for anything either.
They had to be practising in the right way.
And this is exactly what I've seen with my students too.
They often came to me feeling that they simply didn't have what it took to get past a particular level where they'd been stuck for years.
But I'd get them to make one or two simple changes to how they practised. And they'd break through the barrier almost immediately.
Get great results in less time
Yes, if you want to be one of the top musicians in the world then you do still have to put in a LOT of practice.
But most musicians' goals are much more achievable.
Once you get the QUALITY of practice right, then even incredibly short amounts of practice time can produce outstanding results.
I've seen many students cut down the amount of time they actually practised for but make MORE progress.
Check out Kent’s experience, for example:
"I am already getting more accomplished in a shorter time. I am enjoying music again."
"I decided to get back into [music] at age 45 and joined a community concert band. For 5 years I took weekly lessons and practiced for hours. Despite the huge investment in time, and money, I have struggled to perform at even a modest amateur level. The more I practiced, the more frustrated I became until I even thought about giving up.
Mark’s course on improving practice has really inspired me to keep at it! Within the first week I learned that, after spending hundreds of hours mindlessly repeating things, I was actually reinforcing poor technique and ultimately just burning myself out.
As a result of this course I am already getting more accomplished in a shorter time. I am also enjoying music again and not feeling as burned out. I can thank Mark for rescuing my musical career!"
- Kent Meredith (USA)
So the question now is: how do you ACHIEVE this quality practice?
Make sure the fundamentals are watertight
Luckily, it turns out that you only need to make a few simple changes to get MOST of the benefits on offer.
But this is where most musicians make a crucial mistake...
They immediately ask what new approaches they need to ADD to their practice.
Here's why that's not the best plan...
Imagine you've got a bucket that you want to fill up.
You start pouring water in. But then you notice there's a leak.
Most of the water that's going into the bucket is coming straight out again.
What's your response?
Do you just ignore the leak and work on pouring new water in at a faster rate? Of course, not!
But that's what most musicians are doing when they look for advanced practice strategies to adopt.
There are a few really common mistakes that most musicians make when they practice.
Every one is like a leak in that bucket.
Don't get me wrong - advanced practice strategies are great and can be really effective.
But ONLY if you've fixed all the leaks in your bucket first.
Otherwise, those "mistakes" you're making in the fundamentals of how you practice drag EVERYTHING else about your practice down with them. They're totally sabotaging everything else you do.
Whereas each one of the fundamental "mistakes" in your practice you fix massively accelerates your results.
Whatever the level of musician... beginner, pro, or anywhere in-between...
The same few big "practice killers" keep cropping up again.
9 times out of 10 when I work with someone 1-to-1 we find their biggest problem is on this short list of issues with their practice. And that applying a simple fix is all it takes for them to break through to a new level.
That’s just ONE problem from the list. Most musicians have a bunch of them.
Imagine the cumulative effect if you were to identify and fix 2, 5, or even 10 of these mistakes...
And the great thing is that fixing the leaks in your practice bucket helps everything else too.
If you want to work on advanced practice strategies afterwards then you absolutely can. And you'll get much more benefit from them because you fixed the leak first.
Mindset is crucial
You'll remember I mentioned one piece of the puzzle that still had me stumped.
WHY were so many musicians making these crippling mistakes?
I could understand the beginners. But surely the pros already knew about this stuff?
And what about me?
I TAUGHT this stuff on a regular basis. But I was still guilty of making the exact same mistakes myself...
I stumbled across the answer by accident once I started coaching musicians on their mental game.
These same practice issues still kept cropping up.
And, as I dug deeper in the coaching sessions, it became clear that understanding alone couldn't fix them.
Mindset traps formed an even bigger obstacle.
Turns out that the natural response was to avoid fixing problems that people could see were there.
They'd make excuses. Or tell themselves that it wasn't really a big deal.
And those few who did fix things would usually fall back into bad habits soon after. The mindset challenges just made it too hard to stay on the right path.
It's typically these mindset issues that hold you back from improving despite all your hard work.
But when you address them alongside the crucial practice mistakes, then you get transformational progress that sticks in the long-term.
You might be thinking "Well, that all sounds great in theory... But does it really work in practice?"
Well I took these ideas and turned them into what I call the Practice Multiplier system.
Introducing the Practice Multiplier
So how can you learn these key principles, avoid the mindset traps, and turn everything into concrete improvements in your practice sessions?
I've taken everything I've learned from years of teaching experience, research, and self-experimentation and condensed it into a 2-week crash course called "Practice Multiplier".
It applies to any instrument (including singers) and any style of music. Musicians at all levels – from occasional amateurs through to long-term full-time pro performers and teachers – have all gone through the course and got outstanding results.
This is not a comprehensive look at all the advanced strategies you could ever want to know about practice.
Instead, I've handpicked the few simple and quick actions that will have a dis-proportionally large impact on your results.
I've focused only on the most crippling practice mistakes. So you can make a huge difference to your practice in the minimum amount of time.
From then on you can dedicate your time to practice itself and reaping the benefits...
These are things that any musician can do. But most simply don't do some, or even all of them.
I give you concrete exercises to use. But I also reveal the mindset barriers that typically stop musicians from applying them on a consistent basis. In short, you get everything you need to make sure this isn't just some theoretical course. But that you actually take effective action that sticks.
Check out what these musicians have to say about the Practice Multiplier course:
"In just two weeks the results are obvious"
"This course is a revelation into how to practice. You might go what???? I practice every day. But in just two weeks I have revised, planned, recorded and focussed on my practice in ways I've never done before, and the results are obvious. The benefits are exciting and rewarding."
- Purly Henderson (pianist - Australia)
"I saw more concrete progress in the first week than I’d seen in months. Maybe years."
"While the 20 years of practice before this course weren't wasted, they could've been FAR more productive if I'd had this course to guide me. I saw more concrete, measurable progress in the first week of the course than I'd seen in months. Maybe years.
I have taken many different online saxophone courses (the usual suspects) and gained something from each. This course, however, has done more for me in a week and half then they did in a month. Truly transformational.
Each lesson had at least one actionable insight that directly led to changes in how I approached practice - mentally and physically. Again and again, I found myself saying, "Of course! It's so obvious!" but obviously it wasn't. And that's usually a sign that you've just learned something fundamental, valuable and true.
I've been so inspired by this course that I've asked every member of my band to sign up as well."
- Charles Benoit (saxophonist - USA)
"I did not think that miracles happen in two weeks, but I still got much more than I expected."
"I choose Practice Multiplier because I had a feeling that I do not learn even though I spend hours practicing. I was tense and lessons went badly. I made mistakes, and more mistakes.
Then I started Mark's course. I learned that less is more. What to practice and how. And the best of all: I can be happy with my practicing and enjoy it. That and much more I learned in these two weeks. Especially I love the advice and practical attitude in Mark's lessons.
These lessons gave me a new attitude, peace and much help to my practicing. I have started to think my everyday practicing as a peaceful path to my future abilities. I did not think that miracles happen in two weeks, but I still got much more than I expected. Perhaps that is a little miracle. Thank you, Mark!"
- Anne Palonen (bassoonist - Finland)
Could you work all this out on your own?
Maybe. It's possible but I doubt it...
You could spend years observing how musicians at all levels practice, identify the mistakes they make and how to fix them, work out which of these fixes give the most impact for the least work... then distil what you've learned into a set of principles and concrete action steps that any musician can apply to take their practice to the next level.
OR you can take this course and learn all of this in just 2 weeks, while I hold your hand through the process and guide you through the exact changes that you need to make to get results.
By the end of the course, you’ll have clarity about what to practice and HOW to practice it. You’ll be confident that you’re getting the maximum benefit from your practice time because you’re already noticing significantly better results. And you’ll feel more motivated to practice, and more satisfied after every practice session as a result.
Here's just a small taste of what you'll learn inside the course:
Here's what you'll receive when you join the Practice Multiplier today:
- Daily bite-sized lessons delivered straight to your inbox 5 days a week for 2 weeks. These lessons will teach you the key principles that you must follow for your practice to be effective, how to embed them into your practice, and how to avoid the mindset traps that prevent most musicians from applying them correctly.
- Daily exercises that you can follow to improve your practice that day. Each exercise will take less than 20 minutes to complete.
- Extra bonus lessons on constructing a practice SYSTEM where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. You’ll make clear progress every day – even the ones when nothing seems to go right...
- 2 Q&A calls that go much deeper into understanding and implementing the material in the course (there's over 4 HOURS of hugely valuable material here. But don't worry! The accompanying show notes allow you to jump straight to the sections that interest you and skip everything else)
It would take me 5 hours to teach you the core concepts one-on-one.
And that’s before guiding you through the practical exercises for each lesson, answering your questions, and going over the bonus material. Realistically, we're talking 10 hours or more in total.
So if I was teaching this on a 1-to-1 basis then you'd pay me around $1000.
But you're not going to pay anywhere near that...
This material has the ability to transform your music for ever. It can accelerate the results from all the practice you do for years or even decades to come.
And this is the only course that gives you the universal principles that you need to get right, the mindset traps you need to avoid, and the step-by-step music-specific exercises.
I don’t know of any other teachers who teach any one of these angles – let alone all three together.
So I reckon $200 would be more than a fair price.
But I believe these are skills that every musician deserves to have. So I want to make them available to as many people as possible.
So I’m going to give the course to you for just $97.
That’s 10 times less than the $1000 cost of learning this from me face to face.
All you have to do is hit the "Join now" button below to get all of this right now.
"I was struggling to play pieces consistently even though I had practised them a lot."
"The Practice Multiplier Course is a great course. It does what it says on the tin. After doing the first few lessons, I made huge progress and I now have achieved my musical, performance goal which is what I set out to do by applying the principles of this course.
I was struggling to play pieces consistently with competence even though I had practised them a lot. Now I have the knowledge and tools to play comfortably, competently and happily whilst I'm playing. Thanks to Mark Morley-Fletcher, he is a musical guru, he truly understands the difficulties that musicians have and provides the real solutions to help you attain your performance playing."
- Vincent T. Cousins (pianist - UK)
"In the space of 1 week I have improved massively in aspects of my practice that I have been struggling with for months"
"THIS COURSE IS FANTASTIC VALUE FOR MONEY.
I have been learning to play the Saxophone for 4 years now, and as time has gone on I found myself thinking that, although my approach to practice is structured, that there was something I was missing and that I could use my time more effectively. I would have many days where I did not want to practice because the outcomes from the day before were not good, so then I would skip days.
Having been through the Practice Multiplier course I have a much better framework to work with.
I have improved massively in aspects of my practice that I have been struggling with for months, just in the space of 1 week, which motivates me to practice more! Things like difficult finger moves between certain notes, my tone is better because I have implemented the feedback approach and I can play with much better rhythm.
The important thing is to be prepared to totally rethink your practice approach and to be prepared to take some initial time to plan your practice approach In line with Mark's teachings.
The course is a bargain. It applies to anything you are learning."
- Sandra Onions (saxophonist - UK)
"The course has the best cost/benefit ratio I have ever seen"
"Before the course I was struggling hard with the feeling of low effectivity of my practise. This gave me some frustration. Now I have very good concepts to address this and, first effect, frustration has vanished.
The course has the best cost/benefit ratio I have ever seen. Also because you do not have to invest too much time in the course itself and you can invest it into the actual practise time. Great job, Mark!"
- Udo Lampe (guitarist - Germany)
Here's my guarantee:
I'm not offering a guarantee... at least not in the "traditional" sense.
This course is about making specific changes to improve your practice. A guarantee gives you a way to back out from doing the work to achieve what you want.
Not having a guarantee means you MUST take action because there is no other option.
That being said, here's what I AM offering. If you actually DO the exercises and follow the course, just show me that you've done the work but not got results, and I'll GLADLY refund you every penny.
I'm doing this because I truly believe it's the best way to ensure you succeed. And I offer that guarantee because I KNOW that you can't apply the principles in the course and NOT become a better musician.
You're covered if you DO THE WORK. It's time to take action and assume responsibility for your own success.
I'm here to help guide you on the path and give you the tools and knowledge you need to succeed.
So take action and get the Practice Multiplier course today.
You'll receive an email immediately with the practical details of the course.
The daily lessons themselves will begin the following Monday.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can't find an answer to your question here? Then contact me.
Sure - see below...
This is a 2-week programme. You'll get emails every day from Monday through to Friday for the 2 weeks.
These daily emails will be the bulk of the learning in the course. Each one sets out the key principles of the lesson and gives you specific actions to take. It also includes a link to a short audio lesson with practical examples and some deeper nuances.
There's also an extra set of bonus lessons on constructing a practice SYSTEM where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. You’ll make clear progress every day – even the ones when nothing seems to go right....
Finally, there are recordings of 2 Q&A calls that I did with previous students. We go deep into understanding and implementing the material in the course.
The big idea is that, by the end of 2 weeks, you’ll have clarity about what to practice and HOW to practice it. You’ll be confident that you’re getting the maximum benefit from your practice time because you’re already noticing significantly better results. And you’ll feel more motivated to practice, and more satisfied after every practice session as a result.
Each lesson only takes a few minutes to read through.
The accompanying audio lessons are all less than 8 minutes long (and several are less than 5 minutes). Plus, you can download these and listen any time during your day as you're doing other tasks.
Every lesson also comes with a specific action for you to apply to your practice. Some actions will take just a minute or two to complete. Others might take 10 or 20 minutes.
So none of the lessons will take you more than 30 minutes. And you'll be able to complete many of them in 10 minutes or less.
The exercises in the course will massively improve your practice whether you do them as soon as they arrive... or later.
All the course materials are yours to keep for life. There's nothing to stop you saving them and going through the course whenever it suits you in the future.
But I do encourage you to follow along with the course in real-time if possible. I’ve noticed that the people who make the commitment to complete each lesson before the next one arrives consistently achieve outstanding results.
After you sign up, you’ll get an email straight away welcoming you to the course.
The lessons themselves start on the following Monday and run for 2 weeks. These are also delivered by email and contain links to audio lessons as well as instructions in the email itself.
It’s highly likely.
Everyone I’ve met has blind spots. And it’s really easy to slip into bad habits without realising it.
Here are a couple of practical examples. Jan said:
“I did your pilot Practice Multiplier course and I thought it was amazing, it's made a noticeable improvement to my progress (even though I thought I already had it pretty well organised).”
And Benedict had an organised regime doing 4 hours a day before he took the course. Here’s what he found:
“After a week of trying all these concepts I managed to put together a 2-hour plan. And, man, afterwards I felt I had never been so in the moment when studying it was dizzying!! I love to study and I have no problem with discipline, I can spend hours of intense concentration on a topic. But, man, this is a totally new level. Loved it!”
The course teaches a selection of fundamental principles that allow you to avoid all the biggest causes of ineffective practice. And it shows you how to apply them to your own situation.
You can apply these concepts to any material you’re working on at any level.
(If you are literally just starting out and still learning to get a sound out of your instrument then maybe not ideal. But anything after that should be fine if you are serious about improving the quality of your practice).
There are students joining the course from countries all around the world. The US dollar is the currency that’s most familiar globally and so that’s what I use.
Testimonials from past students:
"I have played instruments for 65 years, yet this course has changed the way I practise"
"Each element of the course is well thought out. Mark gives reasoned explanations and proposed actions, all calmly presented in plain English.
I have played instruments for 65 years, yet this course has changed the way I practise. I soon noticed an improvement."
- Graham Lyons (saxophonist - UK)
"I have been playing professionally for the last 27 years and can thoroughly recommend this course."
"The Practice Multiplier course contains all the advice you need to take your practice and performance to the next level. It is very well written, designed and presented. I have been playing professionally for the last 27 years and can thoroughly recommend this course."
- Alastair R
"I'd love to send some of my students your way. You can change lives with stuff like this!"
"Mark, this was SO SO SO useful!! I've overhauled my practice and I feel really hopeful about it. THANK YOU!
Are you going to run it again? I'd love to send some of my students your way. I hope you do - you can change lives with stuff like this!!"
- Bryony Rickard (teacher and singer/saxophonist - UK)
"I will be gleaning tips and ideas from Mark's coaching until the END OF TIME"
"Mark's insights contain precious nuggets of wisdom that have invigorated me and improved my act of practicing. I will be continually gleaning tips and ideas from Mark's coaching until the END OF TIME.
Even if I only took away the instructions on being content and patient about how to get better by eliminating the 10,000 kicks, that's already worth the price of admission."
- Barney Longacre (bassist - USA)
"As a full-time employee and a single father, I have no time to waste."
"As a full-time employee and a single father, I have no time to waste. The PM is a short yet valuable course to make the most of your practice."
- JR Sierra
"I just had no idea of this level of analysis - and I was a proficient recital musician"
"I just had no idea of this level of analysis, Mark - and I was a proficient recital musician.
OK - but I could have enjoyed so much more control, management, and power in my practice sessions if I were not just suffering music at times.
Now I can see better how some musicians can learn a concerto well in 12-months' time, whereas another (there is actually someone I am thinking of) who can learn three concerti - by three different composers - to artistic brillance, and place each concerto on a different recital program where they are playing complementary pieces of the same level (as the concerto), OR HARDER.
After I get over my confusion and disbelief, I have asked directly, "How is it humanly possible for you to memorize so much music?"
I have even heard the response, "time management" - but I had never put the two together.
Great stuff, and this is only Day 2."
- Roderic Walter
"I have come across many 'how to' practice plans, but none have had the depth and insights that Mark's course provides."
"I am a typical wannabe musician, getting on in years, that has never really managed to find the right method for efficient advancement. I bought into so many on-line courses and have squirrelled away so much "essential" material on my hard drive that I can't possibly ever get through it all.
The principles in this Practice Multiplier course are truly foundational in terms of effective practice methods, with plenty of encouraging backup explanation to keep your motivation healthy. I have come across many "how to" practice plans, but none have had the depth and insights that Mark's course provides.
Merely going along for the ride with this material will not be the magic bullet that so many like myself are constantly seeking, but I have no doubt that diligent application of the tips and recommendations contained, will definitely provide a framework for getting more from time spent practicing. It has certainly brought home to me, how much practice time most of us waste through inefficiency, lack of focus and vague notions about what we want from our musical journey and how to achieve it."
- Aidan Gribbin (guitarist - Ireland)
"I'm much more relaxed and more focused"
"I’m a trumpet player who’s been playing 50 plus years. Before Practice Multiplier I was putting in quite a bit of practice time but I was kind of all over the place and was obsessed with getting in so many hours a day.
Now your method has come into my musical world and it’s like a booster rocket just kicked in and my improvement is astounding. More fun, more relaxed, and more productive.
Now I'm still putting in the time but much more relaxed and most importantly for me more focused. I find that taking little breaks between topics/tasks very beneficial. For some reason taking breaks used to make me feel guilty.
l am very grateful for this enlightening approach that has me more dedicated than ever to my instrument.
I would absolutely recommend this course to any musician who wants to get the most out themselves and their music."
- Peter McNeaney (trumpeter)
"Now, I feel I learn faster and improve faster."
"Before taking the course I did not have a clear framework of how to start working on a piece. It was a bit learning the notes first, then the rhythm etc. not in a well set up way.
Now, I feel I learn faster and improve faster.
This course helped me to put things in perspective, to better understand the indications of my piano professor and make my practicing more efficient.
I would recommend the course to anyone who needs a good summary of bits and pieces of information we are taught all along and never took the time to put them together in a well structured framework."
- Sehavet de Picciotto (Switzerland)
"Already during the first few days I noted significant changes in my practice"
"Mark's course gives an always interesting and exhaustive review of the macro- and microstructures of musical practice. His course is deeply rooted in psychology and neuroscience and much more evidence-based than other tutorials on the web.
Although the course is announced as a two-weeks course, the material (mails, audios and a video) will keep you busy and will inspire you for months or even years.
Already during the first few days of the course I noted significant changes in my practice. I strongly recommend the course to amateur or professional musicians of any level!"
- Christoph Ploner (guitarist - Germany)
"I learned some great tips and new ideas that have shown immediate returns."
"Mark has put together a great workshop/seminar on practicing. I learned some great tips and new ideas that have shown immediate returns."
- Joel Weiss
"I'm confident that this will allow me to break through the constraints that have held me back for so long."
"Practice is probably the most important aspect of mastering an instrument but it's also the most neglected one. Practice Multiplier has helped me address this shortfall and has provided me with a route map to make changes to my daily routine that are long overdue.
I'm confident that this will allow me to break through the constraints that have held me back for so long"
- Mark Leitch (UK)
"I have especially appreciated the sense of being mentored by someone who just seems to understand you very well."
"I have enjoyed Mark's Practice Multiplier Course. Over 10 lessons Mark brought us through some very good teaching.
I have especially appreciated the sense of being coached or mentored by someone who just seems to understand you very well, and what you are going through. The audio/video portions were unexpected and well done.
I'm looking to continue incorporating all of Mark's insights into practice and will look forward to any of his other offerings."
- Steve Bartlett
"The way Mark clearly explains the individual steps and puts them together as a complete system is brilliant."
"Before taking the Practice Multiplier course I knew what my big music goal was but not how to make steady continuous progress towards it. I had almost given up on thinking I could get there.
Mark provided some simple but essential tools that helped me to focus my practice sessions and regain my motivation to move towards my goal. It's not rocket science but the way Mark clearly explains the individual steps and puts them together as a complete system is brilliant. My playing has definitely improved by applying what I've learnt on this course.
If you feeling like you're not getting any real benefit from your practice sessions and you're struggling to find the motivation to practice, then this course may well be what you're looking for."
- Dave A (New Zealand)
"A very good mix of excellent practical guidance ( whatever your instrument) and inspiring ideas."
"I found this course very interesting and helpful in organising a practice regime.
It has a very good mix of excellent practical guidance ( whatever your instrument) and inspiring ideas to make you think out for yourself what you need to do to progress towards your goals and enjoy your practice sessions while doing so.
Thank you Mark"
- Mary Reidy
"I would recommend it to anyone wanting to maximise the time they have available to practise."
"This course sets out in very clear bite size chunks, the key areas where practice can often be improved. The text is engaging and informative and, above all, extremely motivational.
I would recommend it to anyone wanting to maximise the time they have available to practise."
- Peter Rivers (flautist - UK)
"I wish I had been offered a course such as this decades ago."
"I wish I had been offered a course such as this decades ago. It would have saved so much time and the heartaches from the feeling of making slow, plodding progress.
This course effectively gives you a step by step method of how to practice and consequently at the same time, teaches you time management to maximize improvement of musical skills."

"You could call your course The Elusive Obvious. Just superb."
"As someone who tends to give advice to a bunch of amateurs, some of which cant really string a solo together, you realise how their bad practice habits have crippled their sincere desire to play well.
I think you could call your course The Elusive Obvious. Just superb.
I have made all the mistakes over the years, even in the face of constant advice. I think you have worked out how to take people by the hand and guide them out practice traps. Absolutely invaluable."

"I would recommend it to anyone who wants to optimise their practice routine."
"I felt that the course was packed with useful concepts and, although I haven't yet gone in depth, I've gained a lot simply by bearing them in mind. Every lesson has something of value and obviously represents a lot of work on Mark's part.
I would recommend it to anyone who wants to optimise their practice routine."

"A must for every serious musician."
"This is the most comprehensive and practical "practice course" I've come across, a must for every serious musician. The tutor has very good pedagogical skills and he makes a lot of sense."
- Stephan Soderberg (drummer - Sweden)
"I know I am improving at a faster and more positive way."
"Mark's course has completely altered my way of practicing; not just the structure of each session, but how I engage with what I am doing. I know I am improving at a faster and more positive way and feel much closer to the process of making music. What is interesting is how small things can make big changes."

"It almost seemed like I wasn't improving at all."
"I've been playing guitar for more than 30 years. I got to a certain level of skill without really thinking much about the act of practice itself, or how to be efficient with my practice time, but my improvement became very slow, it almost seemed like I wasn't improving at all.
To move forward it's important to develop an effective, efficient practice routine and this course is really helpful for that. It's filled with great tips for making your practice time more beneficial.
I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to speed up their evolution as a musician."

"Though I've been practicing for over 50 years, sometimes a new idea or two can make a huge difference!"
"This course absolutely helped my daily practice. Though I've been practicing for over 50 years, sometimes a new idea or two can make a huge difference! I appreciate the boost."

"It’s SO good to DO it!"
"I heartily disliked you the first day for what you asked us to do - but it’s SO good to DO it!
So keep pushing us towards the uncomfortable."

"An easily manageable daily task that helps YOU develop YOUR OWN ideas of a practice routine."
"I came to Marks' course with an open mind. As an intermediate guitarist I am always looking for ways to improve.
More often than not on our journey we will have heard of some of the concepts that Mark explores. But Mark manages to pull together many of these ideas together with some new ideas into an easily manageable daily task that helps YOU develop YOUR OWN ideas of a practice routine.
I have come away from this course with a more disciplined approach to my practice. I know exactly what I am going to do, how long for and importantly how it fits in to my vision for my improvement."
- John Andersson
"I have no intention of returning to old and stuck ways."
"This course is exceptional. Mark's years of research and experience are formidable. This practice course has been brilliantly structured, supported by an array of resources.
What good fortune to have found Mark on line, not even trying. For years, no matter how hard I practiced over the years, ready to perform, instead I would often stumble, thanks to my negative inner critics undermining my confidence and capacity.
I have had marvellous piano mentors over the years, but Mark's approach is now just what I need, always fresh and inspiring. Mark has helped me how to un-learn and re-learn: to feel, notice, relax, let go, flow, breathe, staying present: enabling us to take on challenges to play and perform anew with different states of mind...
I have no intention of returning to old and stuck ways. Exciting!"
