30 Days to Vocal Power
Join Christa and Justin for a 4 class series to unlock your true vocal potential.
This series is a valuable tool for musicians and public speakers alike. You will be making time with like-minded classmates to pin point and explore the obstacles that prevent you from performing at your peak.
Each three hour class is split into sections that will help:
1. Identify your goals
2. Identify the barriers to those goals
3. Get the mental and physical tools to achieve your goals
*All four weeks will have group movement exercises and will require comfortable clothes and some sort of yoga matt/towel/blanket
Justin Collmann, PhD is a licensed clinical psychologist in private practice in Sebastopol. He earned his doctorate from the University of Virginia in 2012 where he studied the effects of stress on teachers. In his private practice, Dr. Collmann uses the concepts of performance psychology to help clients advance in school, professional life, athletics, arts, and hobbies.
Performance psychology addresses how professionals, athletes, artists, and hobbyists can improve performance in their chosen field. Dr. Collmann will talk about the fundamental ideas of deliberate practice that includes: working on the ‘growth edge’, incorporating corrective feedback, and how to simulate performance conditions. These ideas, observations and practices are helpful for people trying to move ahead in their careers or take the next step in their extracurricular activities like arts or athletics.
