Flow is the goal of every serious performer! Unfortunately, for too many musicians the path to peak performance is fraught with frustration, confusion, and disappointment. For over 35 years, performance psychologist Dr. Jon Skidmore has helped musicians from around the world unlock the gate leading to your peak performance path. The Musicians’ Path to Peak Performance integrates the neuroscience of flow, anxiety management, and performance psychology into a masterful approach – the Five Stages of Peak Performance. Dr. Skidmore brings his experience as a licensed clinical psychologist, singer, researcher and educator to create a transformational experience that is fun, challenging and life changing.
