Jeff Nelsen is the founder of Fearless Performance, former horn player for the Canadian Brass, and Professor of Horn at Indiana University's Jacobs School of Music.
He discusses his time with Canadian Brass, how he won four orchestral auditions, and how he started Fearless Performance, a method for mastering the mental process of performance.
He is one of the most uplifting people I've ever met and that is reflected in Fearless Performance. In this interview, he discusses selling yourself as a musician (which he prefers to refer to as sharing), how to get the best out of yourself on stage, and most importantly how he took the idea for this program and made it a product in the form of seminars, lectures, and books.
As with Dr. Tim in the last episode, this will leave you fired up and ready to follow through on any ideas you have kicking around in your head!
