Build good habits and become a better musician

As well as being passionate about self-development, here at NurtUp we’re a musical bunch; Daniel is a skilled multi-instrumentalist, Hajni plays guitar and bass, and I dabble with cello, bass guitar and Irish bouzouki.a guitar and a bass

Before and since my practising has been patchy at best, and absent at worst!

So it was when Daniel and I started our current band. It quickly became clear how badly my bass skills had deteriorated, I resolved to rediscover the secret of a regular practice schedule, even if it required a little brain-hacking! …click to read more!
