ProTools very effective for practicing. Particularly, recording self then slowing down the recording to find flaws. In this way, problems can be pinpointed quite accurately, leading to a quick solution. A great way to practice.

Recently, I've been thinking of balancing teaching and performing. Lately, it's a little heavy on the teaching, time to perform more.

I hve the same problem. When I am only teaching it gets harder and harder to sustain x number of hours per day on top of my regular job. My recnet backsliding wa ssaved by quite a few unexpected gigs. Back to getting up at 4.30. Yawn.

Yes. Getting up early is one solution, at least for getting more practice time in. I've found that with a proper diet (meaning mostly no American poison- wink) and exercise I don't need so much sleep. I'm comfortable with 5-6 hours.
