Featured Trainer: Fearless Performance by Jeff Nelsen

“I am now a true believer in Fearless Performance training. It was the missing piece I needed to convey my story and to take my performance in auditions to the next level! I knew I needed something to help me get my excerpts to convey my story and Jeff has helped me discover my own voice and figure out how to tell it under any circumstance without being affected by nerves! I would highly recommend fearless training for anyone trying to take their performance to the next level, whether it's on the horn or anywhere in life!”

Having dealt with serious performance anxiety himself, Jeff uses his wisdom and wit to pick the brains of our favorite inspirational people. How does anyone work on their art and craft at incredibly high standards, and then consistently walk in-front of an audience and perform their best?
