For the price of an uber eats meal, you can learn how to remove negative indoctrinations from your practice life and make room for REAL productivity. 

Healthy musicians need two things:

  • Consistent practice schedule

  • Healthy mentality about music and themselves as musicians (and humans!) 

If you want to 'make it' in this music world, you need to have both.

Learn how to properly balance your mental wellness with your practice schedule in the Practice Revamp Journal + Toolkit, and you won't have to worry about burn-out, anxiety, or escaping from the practice room.

The Creator

Jalayne is a cellist in her fourth year at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. Since she took her first lesson a month before her 15th birthday, she has been deeply involved with music. Within 2.5 years, she had gone from beginner to degree-level cellist. Her practice life has been intense and relentless. Starting at this seemingly late age turned out to be a blessing in disguise, because the unhealthy indoctrinations of the classical music world were not as ingrained into her as many of her peers. It was easy for her to see that many fellow musicians were losing the battle between mental wellness and music.  She knew that having to choose between the two was not right or sustainable.                                                                                                                                                                                                        

She’s now played with named ensembles like the Royal Scottish National Orchestra (Glasgow, Scotland), The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra (Glasgow, Scotland), The Scottish Ensemble (Glasgow, Scotland), Seattle Collaborative Orchestra (Seattle, Washington), Scottish Ensemble (Glasgow), and Brodsky Quartet (Glasgow). In 2022, Jalayne was awarded the Beatrice Huntington Award for Cellists (UK) and the NIMAN Fellowship at the Green Mountain Chamber Music Festival (US). 

 

When she finished the 100 Days of Practice Challenge in June 2020, she decided that helping fellow musicians create a healthy and sustainable practice plan for themselves was imperative to the classical community’s overall mental health.                                                                                                                                                                                                         

After years of struggling with burnout and chronic performance anxiety, she tried to find a more holistic approach to practicing. She eventually created a practice routine that GAVE her energy, not depleted it. Being able to put in the hours while also being able to live a life outside of music was a type of freedom that she hadn’t experienced before, and she definitely will not go back.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      

Mental health and wellness remains among Jalayne’s top priorities. Her goal is to share her findings with as many people as she can, because the future of classical music depends on it.
