Do you ever feel like something is in your way, preventing you from being the musician you’re meant to be? From feeling really free and confident as an artist and performer?

No matter how talented and accomplished you are or how hard you practice, you might feel something is missing in your playing or career. You might get tense and frustrated during practicing, or you might wish you felt more at home onstage. Maybe you wonder how you could create a more fulfilling and successful life as a musician.

You may have tried a new way of using your hands, positive thinking, or a more rigorous practice schedule. You may have tried beta-blockers, psychotherapy, or all of the above and then some. Yet in spite of all of your efforts, you may still feel somewhat tense, fearful, or unsure of how to take your playing from where it is now to where you want it to be.

If nothing you have tried is bringing you the kind of freedom and confidence you want, it means that there are one or more missing ingredients in your practicing and performing. If you can find these missing ingredients, your playing can become what you want it to be.

Since 1985, I’ve helped pianists pinpoint these missing ingredients through a unique and comprehensive approach called the Art of Practicing. It combines traditional music training with training in mindfulness, sensory awareness, and rhythmic principles, and with new information on body mechanics. This combination of elements brings a deep trust in your own body and mind, so that your energy can flow freely and fearlessly in practice and performance and the music in your heart can fully come out.

If you’re ready to take your playing to a new level of confidence and expressive freedom, I invite you to learn more by subscribing to my free e-zine, Fearless Performing, or scheduling a free consultation.

I wish you much joy and success.
