For Performing Artists

In studying sport psychology, I learned the techniques that thousands of top athletes train with to deliver more consistent and focused performances. This approach, often called "mental skills training," is just as applicable to the performing arts. Whether your stage performance is tightly choreographed like a gymnastics floor routine, free flowing and reactive like a tennis player, or interwoven with an ensemble like a soccer player, mental skills training will help you to create a strong mindset, get truly prepared, find better focus, and perform when the pressure is on.

So how do we improve your performance? It starts by figuring out where you are and where you want to go. Usually, that means having a conversation, either in person in Boston, by Skype, or by phone. From there we can choose some areas for improvement, make a plan, and start working through your goals step-by-step.

Music Bio:

I have been involved in music since the day I was born. My mother is a piano and voice teacher, and growing up, there were always lessons happening in my house after school. I started on cello in 4th grade, and added upright bass (though I had to stand on a chair). As I grew older, I started playing electric bass and guitar. I then gravitated towards jazz and rock, and eventually to the funk and hip-hop band that I spent most of college in. Through it all, I've had a lot of teachers, and I've had a lot of variation in my performances. I haven't had as many opportunities to perform since getting my Sport Psychology Masters, but studying sport performance has fundamentally changed my approach to playing music.
