We’re joined by Mark Morley-Fletcher from Play in the Zone. Mark is a jazz guitarist turned peak performance specialist. He’s developed a system for helping everyday music learners tackle performance anxiety.
Mark has taken ideas and techniques from the world of performance psychology and drawn them in to a clear, coherent framework. He does a fantastic job of tying the underlying concepts behind performance to practical tips you can apply right away in your own musical life.
In this conversation we talk about:
• The non-musical activity that helped Mark draw together the latest research on peak performance into a practical system for musicians. • The difference between “good” autopilot and “bad autopilot” when it comes to performing. • The specific things you can do to defuse the negative physical and mental reactions to performance situations.
You’ll love the insight in this episode - whether you’re gearing up for your first performance, or you’re a touring veteran. Jump in and learn how to play your best!
