Teaching & Transformation with SPARK Practice

Curating the life I love

My 20+ years of teaching, sports coaching, research, and performing brought me SPARK Practice and the Intentional Practice System - now I finally love being on stage again and actually look forward to practicing and performing. I want that for you too. I'll help you Find your Spark.

Let's work together to support you, your students, or your school to learn faster with neurologically-accelerated practice boosts, cultivate supportive, confident mindsets, and accelerate consistently awesome performances.

SPARK Practice for Schools / Festivals

As a passionate teacher, you don't want to spend your time repeating yourself about the importance of practice. 

Let me help you! With flexible frameworks that encourage neuroscience-backed accelerated learning and empower student autonomy, you can get back to what you actually love to teach. 

Just like music theory, it's not only the instrument professor's job to teach how to practice - there's a better way - and that's SPARK Practice. Let me support you to make a bigger impact for your students.

Classes and Workshops for schools/festivals include:

Through SPARK Practice, I support passionate teachers to facilitate a neurologically-aligned converstaion between the muscian, their instrument, and your teaching. You spend less time talking about the importance of practicing, and more time actually teaching what you know.

Learning How to Practice is an essential skill that all music schools should offer, and SPARK Practice is leading the way.
