As well as teaching, I’m a motivational, confidence and performance coach. I work with musicians, singers and speakers at all levels, professional or amateur, regardless of age. My aim is to improve their performances, overcome their fears, increase their confidence and find the courage to do all the things they always dreamed they would do when they started out on their performing journey.
I also help creative people to turn their business ideas into reality and to market themselves and their businesses to the world.
Coaching is such a rewarding part of my job not least because, as a performer myself, I know what you’re going through. I know what it’s like to stand in the wings shaking with fear. I understand what you’re going through when you feel paralysed and unable to move forward because you’re afraid of the ‘what ifs’. I know what it’s like to miss out on chances and opportunities because the fear of failing was stronger than the desire to succeed. I’ve been there, I’ve experienced it, I’ve got the T-shirt and there are some days when I still wear the T-shirt although nowadays I refuse to allow that T-shirt to hold me back. Also, as someone who has had several creative businesses over the years (not just a highly successful teaching practice) I know how difficult it is when you’re first starting out. It can be incredibly frustrating when you have have no idea where to start when it comes to setting up your business and getting your name out there. I’ve learned from my mistakes and I can save you a lot of time and heartache by making sure you don’t make the same mistakes too.
So, if you would like to speak to me about lessons, coaching, or up-and-coming webinars and training sessions that I may be running online, you’ll find all the details you need on the CONTACT PAGE. Teaching and coaching is carried out face to face or online if you’re in the Aberdeenshire area. For the rest of the world it’s online via Skype.
