Read More About The Relaxed Musician CD & Workbook Program

The Relaxed Musician teaches you the same strategies we teach our personal coaching students when working in the areas of coping with anxiety, tension, fear of failure, and mental preparation.  In this 14-day program, you’ll learn the key mental strategies to help you perform with a calm mind that is free of worry, excess tension, and pre-performance jitters.

These mental strategies are not new because we have used them successfully to help our students achieve peak performances for almost 20 years. What’s unique is a new formula or system we have developed to teach every performer how to implement and apply powerful pre-performance mental strategies. These same mental strategies have helped 1000s of athletes improve their mental game and performance.

Who Will Benefit From The Relaxed Musician Program?

Allow us to set the stage with four very important questions about your mental game….

  1. Do you get so tight or tense before performances that you can’t think straight or fear memory slips?
  2. Do you become anxious before you perform because you worry about embarrassing yourself or making mistakes?
  3. Do you have trouble sleeping the night before performances, can’t eat before, or are so anxious and tense stepping onto the stage that you are already tired or spent before your performance starts?
  4. Do you have a warm up routine you follow, but don’t pay attention to your mental preparation before performances?

If you said “yes,” you’re not alone!  Many musicians experience pre-performance anxiety and tension.  Pre-performance anxiety is the number one obstacle to a relaxed and effortless performance – a quality that you must have to enter the performance zone!

Musicians who perform with anxiety and excess tension:

  • Worry too much about results or outcomes and tighten up during their performance.
  • Are afraid of what others may think about them if they make mistakes.
  • Want badly to perform up to the expectations of others and worry that they won’t please others.
  • Are tired even before their performance starts because they are physically and mentally drained due to anxiety and worry.
  • Are prone to lose confidence when they don’t know how to react to pre-performance jitters.
  • Perform tight, scared, and lose trust in their ability because they fear mistakes.

“The Relaxed Musician:
A 14-Day Program for Optimal Mental Preparation”


The Relaxed Musician CD & Workbook Program is ideal for any musician who wants to overcome pre-performance anxiety, worry, or excess tension and learn to perform with poise and confidence.  It’s also ideal for music teachers who wants to teach their students how to perform with poise and relaxation during performances.

The Relaxed Musician” program is presented on two 78-minute CD’s with a 105-page step-by-step workbook. We combine a practical and real-life workbook with a step-by-step CD that takes you through each day of the 14 day program.

It’s like having your own personal mental coaches on your iPod or headphones.

You can use these CDs at home with the practical workbook or download the MP3 files onto your iPod so you can listen to them repeatedly until the strategies are stored in your sub-conscious mind.
