Peak Performance Training for Artists and Performers

What is Peak Performance?

Peak performance is the ability to perform at one’s optimum ability, both physically and mentally.

What is Peak Performance Training?

Peak Performance Training is training designed to help the individual gain improved performance in a chosen area, whether Athletics, the Arts and Artistic Expression, Business, or other areas where better-quality performance is desired. Neurofeedback therapy, which focuses directly on optimizing brain function, is very effective for Peak Performance Training. At Dallas Brain Changers, we begin with a qEEG, or Brain Map, to determine which areas of the brain need to be rebalanced for optimal or balanced performance. Once brain function has been optimized toward the norm or typical for healthy brain function, it can then be trained for “Peak Performance.”

Neurofeedback sessions for Peak Performance Training are then geared toward perfecting the way the brain integrates auditory, visual, and other incoming sensory information. This additional training further increases neuroplasticity, which encourages quicker response times and enhances the ability for more accurate decision making. Essentially, greater neuroplasticity, produced by neurofeedback, creates more finely tuned “muscle memory,” reinforcing the idea that “neurons that fire together, wire together.

Peak Performance Training for Artists and Performers

Neurofeedback assists Artists and Performers in attention distribution and arousal (focus) control, enhancing self confidence, which accurately and productively contributes to their performance. Through neurofeedback training, barriers are unlocked that previously prevented achievement of full potential. Anxiety is managed, distractions are disregarded, focus is increased, thinking is clearer and even under the most stressful situations a calmness is achieved.

Mary Dunleavy is an American soprano who has performed with major opera companies and orchestras around the world. Utilizing neurofeedback for Peak Performance she reports:

“The main difference for me was that I was able to let go of the inner critic and the distraction of so many things going on in a performance. I could focus on each moment as it came. It was part relaxation but also part mental focus: starting to find ‘the zone’.  

I would totally recommend this program to all performers. I think every performer has a level of self-criticism while they are performing or auditioning. To be able to leave that and just do your performance is a freeing and wonderful thing.

People shouldn’t mistake this for therapy. This is very scientific. The neurofeedback is teaching your brain new patterns, and opening up the parts that allow you to be more present in your body and to still your mind.”
