From the Vault: How to Beat the Brain Game for Musical Freedom (feat. Matt Vaartstra)

We’re doing a from-the-vault episode today. We’re going back in time where I had my very own brother on the show to talk about performance and how to beat the brain game that goes on when we’re playing music and trying to get better.

Looking forward to bringing this one back and bringing it back to life.

In this episode:

1. The power of mindset over musical performance.

2. How to train a positive mindset with a Self-Talk Script.

4. Honing in on musical personal records vs. competition.

5. Fixed vs. Growth Mindsets.
