    Great discussion about practice !! I’m going to explore the pomodoro technique. Already was trying using a timed process. Any thing we can do to improve our skills and use our time productively is priceless !!

    Thanks again for another session of valuable insights !!

    Nick – thanks so much for having Stanton on the podcast again. I got a lot of out of the discussion as I always do. In fact, I took Stanton up on his offer and used the Podcast discount and joined the Stanton Moore Drumming Academy. I jumped right in and asked a question on the Forum and got and incredible response back, including from the man himself, Stanton! I couldn’t help but think of those 4 hours a day he said he spends responding to emails!

    Thanks again Nick. Your podcast continues to motivate and help my drumming and keeps me company going to work!
