"Kate explores a multitude of ingenious ways to build a healthy relationship with your instrument and make practicing a joyful, soul-searching quest for true musical expression! Practical, imaginative advice that might put practicing at the top of your things-to-do list."
—Professor Stephany Tiernan, Piano Department, Berklee College of Music

"Kate Chadbourne’s ebook “Practice: A Love Affair with Art & Life” freshly and vibrantly redefined the word for me. Far from the notion of practice as chore, duty, or obligation, ordered up by a shaming drill sergeant (external or internal), is her offering of practice as expression that is joyful, creative, growthful and healing. Practice not as preparation for something that counts or matters, but practice as a way of being – every moment of which is a gift in itself. I strongly recommend that you read this book now and refer back to it over the course of your creative lifetime. You will know from the start that she writes with well-earned authority and credibility; that she means and feels every word of it; and that she wrote it all especially for you."
—Craig Werth, Singer-Songwriter, Artist, Minister

"How do you think about practice? Is it something you dread or feel is laborious? Kate’s e-book reveals fantastic ways you can turn those feelings around, ways to relate practicing your art, be it music, business, hobby, etc., with enhancing ones well-being and frame of mind. Kate’s words are encouraging and energizing. This e-book will get you doing what you love! This is a must read!"
—Lori Surber, musician and website developer at CodeMT

"There is nothing obvious about this book. What surprised and delighted was the way in which Chadbourne looks at the soul of practice. Practicing our art is not just a practical daily undertaking, it’s an epic statement about who we are. What ultimately affects me most about Chadbourne’s book is the love that emanates from it. I profoundly believe that this love and joy, which Chadbourne reached through practice and is now sharing with us, are what will truly save the world."
—Caroline Allen, novelist, visual artist, book and creativity coach

"I love Kate Chadbourne’s book, Practice: A Love Affair With Art & Life. She understands the player, artist, musician because first and foremost she is one. She knows how crazy-making not creating is. She knows it’s essential to life and happiness. And without guilt, she lovingly encourages everyone to do their thing whole heartedly because it affects the entire planet. Kate has a wonderful heart and wit that she shares on every page, and a perspective on playing that is freeing and original. A must read for every lover of creativity."
—Professor Lauren Passarelli, Guitar Department Berklee College of Music
