‘Vourneen gave me the confidence to get back into the swing of auditions after some time out.. I felt like a different musician than before.. I was controlled, confident and I let myself enjoy my pre-performance butterflies.. I actually welcomed them.. bring it on!’
‘I used The School of Performance mental skills training workbook to help steady myself before auditions... I couldn’t believe how controlled and confident I felt performing in front of the panel. This works!'
‘Vourneen encouraged me to incorporate mental skills training as part of my flute practice daily. I now notice if I don’t do it the negative self-sabotaging thoughts creep back in.. the key is to practice the techniques and make them part of your daily practice routine. Then it works, absolutely!’
