A virtual weekend workshop to reset your mindset in performance.
March 26-28, 2021
Do you struggle with performance anxiety?
Do you wish you could shut off that critical voice in your head that doesn't seem to stop in performance?
Do you wish you could deal with those physical symptoms of sweating and shaking but they just seem to get worse?
Do you feel so tense on stage that you can't seem to play like you know you can?
Imagine what it would feel like to walk out on stage and feel totally in control... What would it be like if you never had to worry about performance anxiety again, because you knew exactly how to handle it...
Really put yourself in that mindset...
How would you show up in your practice room if you knew performance anxiety wouldn't get in your way?
Would you be willing to put yourself out there more?
What would it feel like to finally showcase what you can really do?
Would all that work seem much more worthwhile?
This is where I come in...
After a decade of teaching, four music degrees, dozens of auditions, professor jobs, and almost every experience you could imagine in the world of classical music, I decided to become trained as a mindset coach.
Because after all of that experience, I KNOW that mindset can make or break a performance... And having anxiety in performance and not knowing how to handle it is one of the worst feelings in the world.
Who this is for:
Highly motivated musicians (not just flutists!) who want to learn and understand more about themselves and their performance anxiety
Performers who are willing to journal, discover, and participate fully, digging into possibly uncharted territory in their self-awareness
Musicians invested in understanding and gaining control of their performance anxiety once and for all. (This is not a hack or a quick fix!)
How you'll make this transformation:
Become aware of what is fueling your anxiety
Gain a deep understanding of how your mindset works
The difference between adrenaline symptoms and anxiety
Design a mindset you want to have
How to implement the newly designed mindset
Learn how your mindset will affect your physicality during performances
Learn how to create points of focus so you know exactly how to get back on track
How to create confidence and practice these skills in your practice room
Get coached live in these classes and discuss issues that come up for you on stage or in the practice room

"I was lucky enough to have taken part in Chelsea’s mindset coaching while studying with her this year. Performance anxiety was one of my biggest struggles and was something I did not think I would be able to overcome. Through this mindset course, Chelsea was able to transform my anxiety into excitement for sharing the music I work so hard to create. I highly recommend this course for anyone who struggles with negative self-talk, whether that be in or out of the practice room."
