Ever wonder what to do when your mind keeps spinning in a performance? 

This lecture is all about when you're on stage, and how to prepare for that in your practice room, and what to do in the moment.

This topic is aimed to help people play their best in performance. That all comes down to mindset. You've put in the hours, now it is time to reap the rewards!

If you're a music teacher, your voice is in your students' minds. You are a powerful influence on them and they look to you as a role model. What a privilege! What an honor! We are so lucky to be teachers, and being able to understand the way our mindsets impact music lessons can create confidence in not only you but your students as well! 

Helping students empower themselves is one of the hidden gems we get to explore through the vehicle of teaching music. Leading students through challenging music, building skills, and helping them share those skills with others can be challenging and rewarding. 

We cover 5 concepts: 



Foundation of mindset work

Tangible tools to use to understand the mindset of yourself and your students.


Giving Feedback

How to incorporate mindset work into giving the most effective feedback in lessons. 


the WHY

Learn why questioning everything and finding the answer is the most effective path for you and your students.


How to empower students

Learn how to empower your students through thought work.


Teaching with a clear mind

Learn what I call "clean teaching" which allows you to teach ANY student most effectively.
