Suggestions to make your sessions more productive and fun

Practice routines are a great way to train you how to practice. This will help you to best use the limited time you have to make the practice fun and productive. Remember: these routines are just a series of suggestions. What I hope you learn is how to make your own practice routine to reflect your own needs.

For each of the routines you’ll find a video trainer, pdf outline as well as a word file (so you can edit it and create your own).
