Learn research-based strategies for more effective learning and performance under pressure
Not fuzzy abstract theory, but concrete and actionable skills that can be applied to your playing today.
Learning that there were decades of research studies on how to practice, beat nerves, build confidence, and shush the annoying critic in my head was pretty transformative for me.
Fortunately, you don’t have to get a PhD in psychology to develop these skills in your own playing. Whether you learn best on your own or through live group classes, there’s an option for you below.
Learn at your own pace, at a time and place that works best for you, with audio, video, worksheets, and step-by-step guidance.
This comprehensive course will teach you how to practice not just for effective learning and skill development, but for effective performance and skill retrieval as well. From managing nerves to building confidence to attention control, you’ll learn how to develop a key set of mental skills in your daily practice, so you can bridge the gap between practice and performance and play more like yourself when it counts.
Live (Online) Workshops
Learn alongside a cohort of other musicians and lifelong learners, as you attend live Zoom sessions, engage with your fellow group members, and complete a series of homework assignments from one week to the next.
Performance Psychology Essentials for Educators
In this live 6-week course, specifically designed for educators, you’ll learn how to teach your students to manage nerves more effectively, get into “the zone” more consistently, and become more confident performers and self-efficacious practicers. Or in other words, develop a more positive relationship with both practicing and performing.
The courses and workshops above will prepare you for many of the situations and challenges you’re likely to encounter. But if you have a particularly stressful audition or performance coming up, and are looking for a bit of additional help along the way, 1-on-1 coaching is also a potential option.
