Baking and Biking: How to Talk to Parents about Practice

Welcome to this live masterclass. In this session, Nicola Cantan and Samantha Coates discuss their favourite analogies for educating parents about music practice. You’ll bake a metaphorical practice pie with Nicola, ride a fictional practice bike with Samantha, and by the end you’ll feel much more confident discussing practice with parents in your studio.

If you want to read about the ideas discussed here, you can read Samantha’s blog about why bike riding is like practice here. Nicola’s pie analogy is explained in more detail in her book Practice Pie.
