Fearless Performance by Jeff Nelsen

 

Fearless Practice Audio Tracks

Welcome to your Fearless Practice.

Thank you for letting us inspire you!

This audio series can guide you to a clear, well-intended state of mind right before you begin your practice sessions throughout your day.  Your new powerful state of mind can explode your learning in wonderful ways, and have you consistently preparing and performing your ABSOLUTE best sooner than you'd think.

No More "Piñata Practicing"! - Too often, musicians do what Jeff calls, “Piñata Practicing” where they swing away for an hour in the practice room and feel satisfied just because they've put in some practicing. Or worse, they don't feel satisfied, but continue to swing away, all the while hoping that more is more. Quantity over quality. Learn through repetition. Sound familiar? Unfortunately, our bodies don't discern between good and bad habits; we just learn habits.  Many of the habits we build through less-than-optimal repetition are WAY less-than-optimal! By embracing the destructive intent of just putting in another hour of practicing, we’ve missed massive amounts of potential learning and we’ve also probably enforced some bad habits too. We are taking one step forward and two steps backward. This is multi-tasking in its worst form!

You sound how you practice - The bad news is that regardless of how many times we're told to practice well, piñata practicing continues to happen because even through a mindless practice session, people can get better in some ways. The good news is there’s a much MUCH better way...

The full VALUE of these tracks is impossible to explain - Please just try one! - Give the free “Diligence” track a listen and experience for yourself what can happen in your practice time when you’re well intended, calm minded, and inspired. You’re about to see exponential growth right away.

Each track is a 10-minute session that averages 5 minutes of inspiration and transforming stories (narrated by Saral Burdette) followed by some time for thought...time to let your mental magic happen.
