Are you a musician who gets nervous when you perform?
You’re certainly not alone. One study found that 75% of professional, (yes, professional) orchestra musicians experience such intense stage fright that it mars their playing.
It spoils everything and is especially bad when the stakes are high, like during a big performance or audition.
Your heart races, your fingers tremble, and you can’t concentrate to the point that you might even make mistakes.
Bottom line: stage fright keeps you from doing your best. Making music becomes an ordeal rather than a joy. You wind up happy just to survive.
It Doesn’t Have to Be That Way
I’ve got some good news and bad news for you.
Here’s the bad. You’ll never achieve your full potential as a musician until you find your way beyond stage fright.
Now, here’s the good news. There IS an answer for stage fright, but it’s understood by so few performers that you could call it a secret.
When you discover it, you’ll be able to unleash your talent. No more imagining the audience in its underwear. You could be in your underwear and it wouldn’t matter.
I’m Dr. David Lee Fish
Do you struggle with stage fright when you perform? Is it undermining your potential and making the spotlight unenjoyable?
I know how you feel. I’ve been there myself and have helped many talented musicians with the anxiety they experience.
The performers I recommend receive private auditions from major television talent shows like America’s Got Talent and American Idol. 🙂
Trust me to show you the way beyond your nervousness in just a few days.
Why the Answer is So Hard to Find
Why do so few people find the answer to stage fright? It’s because
most of us have it all wrong when it comes to this menace. It’s actually like the type of finger traps we use to play with as kids. Our instinct is to pull to get free, but that just makes the hold stronger. The effective answer is counterintuitive. The same goes for stage fright.
What is the counterintuitive answer for stage fright? It’s found in the simple power of mindfulness.
As reported in respected media sources like the New York Times, Psychology Today, and Time magazine, the scientific community is discovering something age-old traditions have known all along. Mindfulness offers a potent antidote for a range of problems, including stage fright.
The 5-Day Solution
As a young performer and student of Zen, I stumbled upon the remarkable benefits of mindfulness in helping me with my own nervousness when performing (long before mindfulness became popular).
I built upon this experience to help others find their own way beyond stage fright. They include my students at Catawba College, where I direct a thriving program of study for students of popular music.
I’ve now poured everything I’ve learned about stage fright into the 5-Day Solution to help everyone learn the secret to performing free of anxiety’s grasp.

The 5-Day Solution is an essential weapon in the arsenal of any serious performer, public speaker, or athlete, and anyone else whose career depends on persuading, entertaining, or motivating others. Dr. Fish is revolutionizing entertainment & public speaking. DO THIS!!!"
Having spent the last 30+ years in the entertainment industry as a director, producer, writer, actor, sportscaster and voice-over artist, I'm all too familiar with the nemesis known as stage fright. Dr. Fish has helped me better understand this unwelcome guest, who often shows up unannounced.
Maddie A. (American Idol contestant) As a media and arts teacher, I love the multi-disciplinary and holistic approach to the never-ceasing problem: fear of what others are thinking. The text uses psychology and philosophy but also remains bluntly pragmatic. I start with the 5-day method in my On Camera course as a means of freeing my students from themselves to become themselves.
—Dr. Woodrow Hood (Director of Film Studies, Wake Forest University) I really like the straightforward and empowering method for helping performers recognize and work with stage fright without feeling shame, guilt, or embarrassment. The beauty of the approach is that it can be applied to other anxiety-provoking situations.
—Barbra Weidlein (MajoringInMusic.com) When you're 18-year-old twin sisters from Florida and trying to crack the shell of Nashville, it's easy to feel intimidated. The 5-Day Solution is a life-changer, driving the confidence & energy we need to deliver our sound, our dreams, and our art to our audiences! Thanks, Dr. Fish. You ROCK!!!
