Music fans may associate musicians with the stage, but we know where a musician’s real home is: the practice room!
But what does it mean to practice? How can we use our time efficiently and intelligently? How can we maximize our progress as well as our joy? In this new series, we tap into the wisdom of performers with the Civic Orchestra of Chicago, one the country’s premiere training orchestras for young professional musicians. Whether you’re a seasoned performer or just starting out, everyone can benefit from experimenting with their practice methods. This month, we hear from flutist Alexandria Hoffman and percussionist Simón Gómez Gallego.
