World-class Performers Endorse the Musician’s Practice Planner

“This is a great book. If you want to make serious use of your practice time, the Musician’s Practice Planner is for you.”
Branford Marsalis, Grammy-winning Saxophonist and Composer

“This is a great organizational tool for focusing your energies towards the daily pursuit of growing on your instrument.”
Bruce Hornsby, Singer-Songwriter and Pianist

“It is not only extremely practical, it is a wonderful progress gauge for students and performers alike. I’ve already begun to use it myself. It’s a great book!”
Robert McDuffie, Grammy-nominated Violin Soloist

“In my experience, one of the wonders of music and the making of music is that with effort and instruction one can learn to do something that one couldn’t do before. We all the know the old saying, “How do you get to Carnegie Hall? Practice!” This is true and when practice is presented in a fun and organized way, it works! This wonderful planner accomplishes just that, and I have begun to use it this week even after 30 years as a professional singer. And, I have noticed an improvement. A little practice every day is far better than many hours on one day, and this book helps accomplish this. It’s another sign of a commitment to one’s art and one’s work. I endorse this wonderful planner most enthusiastically.”
Frederica von Stade, World-renowned Mezzo-Soprano

“The Musician’s Practice Planner belongs on every student’s music stand, and I recommend it equally enthusiastically to teachers and professional performers. As every dedicated teacher and every busy performer knows, one of the greatest challenges in becoming a better musician is learning how to practice, and few things are more important in overcoming that challenge than the basic task of being organized and conscious of exactly what one wants to achieve at every moment. I cannot think of anyone, from the beginner starting her first lesson, to the experienced professional, who could not derive some benefit from this superbly thought out tool for learning.”
Jeffrey Kahane, Piano Soloist and Conductor

“The Musician’s Practice Planner is a tremendous asset for both teacher and student. Guided by the weekly lesson plan, students are organized and motivated. By filling in the practice log, the student feels a great sense of accomplishment, pride and progress, the “look what I did!” feeling that generates more good work. Lessons will be better prepared and the student will gain self-discipline and self-confidence. The Musician’s Practice Planner is a terrific teaching tool!
Eugenia Zukerman, Acclaimed Flute Soloist and CBS News Arts Correspondent

“The Practice Planner can help you stay focused on what you really need to practice by making you more conscious of how you’re spending your practice time. I’ve been enjoying using this valuable tool.”

I encouraged our large (more than 500 families) Suzuki department to try out the MPP and they’ve been using them successfully every year since. Whether the straightforward monitoring of practice time and content or journaling the subtle ups and downs of the learning process, the Musician’s Practice Planner is flexible enough for all ages and levels of students, from young beginners through college music majors. Even pros have told me it can really help organize the demands of their hectic practice needs.”
