Fine Tuning Your Jazz Playing with P.B.R. Practice

One of my jazz mentors once said that the secret that pro-level jazz musicians have, some of the best jazz musicians in the world, is they’ve mastered the art of practicing.

In fact, he went on to say that, pro jazz musicians spend just as much time fine-tuning their actual practice as they do their actual jazz playing.

And so, today, I want to talk about the strategy called P.B.R. practice. Elements of practice sessions that will help set you up for success and jump-start your playing and help it improve a lot faster than it would, otherwise.

Welcome to episode 405

In this episode:

1.  What is P. B. R. practice
2.  The Planned Practice
3.  Different options for planning out a practice session
4.  The Batched Practice
