Practice effectively

Efficient, effective practice is the only path to improvement. Figure out WHAT and HOW to practice. Learn to do more in less time, and learn how to get better faster.

Beat performance anxiety

Great performers aren’t born, they’re trained. Master the mental techniques and tools you need to become a consistent, confident performer.

Learn audition strategy

Auditions aren’t performances, they’re elaborate obstacle courses requiring specialized training. Learn how to face the obstacle course and win.

Find out why you need the Honesty Pill

Honesty Pill is an online resource that helps people teach themselves to be better musicians. I like to talk about auditions a lot because they require such complicated and focused effort, and because those same techniques apply to all areas of musical performance and practice.

I chose the name “Honesty Pill” in reaction to a common issue with performers and artists—people are afraid to take a close look at what they’re doing wrong, even if they desperately want to succeed. My goal is to help people to tackle their issues, so they can achieve their goals. I like to call my approach “swallowing the Honesty Pill.”

I offer practical courses, informative articles, and activities to help you ditch your excuses and really improve.
