Transform Your Performances Completely In As Little As 6 Weeks
The Best Musicians Know That Success Comes From Your Mind Just As Much As From Your Physical Technique
If you love music, but find yourself unsatisfied when you perform for others then I can show you how to break through that barrier.
I’ve been doing this for years and have helped thousands of musicians to play consistently at their best, express themselves more freely, and truly enjoy performing music for others.
I’ve found that this can be done by training your mind in three simple ways. And this approach will work whether your biggest issue is performance nerves, inconsistent results, or inability to produce the levels in performance that you’re capable of in practice.
Introducing Unlock Your Performance
The programme gives you everything you need to train your mind for peak musical performances – whatever your instrument, style of music, or level of technical ability. As well as vital information, you get the feedback, accountability and community that often makes the difference between success and failure.
To get to the next level you have to remove any guesswork about how to train your mind – and that’s exactly what I’ve done:
A Clear Path
This is an integrated system rather than a heap of disorganised information. The right lessons in the right order. Everything you need – nothing you don’t. You won’t waste time and effort blindly trying lots of different things.
Training about thought processes can be hard to implement – even if the concepts are valuable. Unlock Your Performance gives you clear, concrete exercises designed specifically for musicians... Not vague instructions like: “Just think of this and this…”
Go At Your Own Pace
You get lifetime access to everything: videos, audios, worksheets and more. You’ll be able to fit the course to your lifestyle – even if your schedule is busy or unpredictable.
Key Information: Core Lessons
Module 1: Make Pressure Work In Your Favour
Get tools to not only cope with pressure… but to turn it to your advantage. You’ll learn how to get into your Ideal Performance State before you start to play – even when the stakes are high.
Module 2: Build Rock Solid Self-Belief
Here's where you build the foundation that underlies the success of everything you do as a musician. You’ll rewrite past beliefs and set yourself up so that future experiences only add to your confidence.
Module 3: Courage and Letting Go
Learn how to let go and tap into the full power of your subconscious mind when you perform. You also get exercises to build the courage required to do this.
Module 4: How to Get Into the Zone
Learn all about how to get into the Zone when you perform. This is where playing feels effortless and enjoyable – and you reach your highest level.
Module 5: Dealing With Mistakes
Here's where you’ll learn how to deal with mistakes. You’ll make fewer of them when you have a reliable plan. And if they DO happen, you’ll recover so easily that most people won’t even notice.
Module 6: Navigating the "Real World"
Module 6 shows you how to apply everything you’ve learned in the messiness and uncertainty of the real world. You won’t have to worry when (not if) things don’t go to plan – you’ll have the ability to adapt to any situation.
Putting It Into Practice: Bootcamp
What really makes the difference, though, is how you practice what you learn. I’ve set up the 6-week “Bootcamp” to make sure that this gets the focus it deserves.
I’ll hold you accountable so that you actually do the work. And I’ll give you feedback on your work so that you can be sure you’re doing it right.
This is a reasonably intensive 6 weeks. But you start the bootcamp when YOU choose – so you can make it fit with your schedule.
I talk with amateur trumpet player, Skip Phoenix, talk about his experience of the bootcamp.
Accountability & Support: Community Forum
The final core part of the programme is the private online community forum. It provides a safe and friendly environment where we can talk things through – just ask a question about any aspect of the course and I’ll get back to you with an answer.
But it also allows you to connect with other like-minded musicians. You’ll get inspiration and motivation from seeing their progress. A lot of the biggest insights and breakthroughs come from students interacting with each other inside the forum.
Hear professional drummer and teacher, Hasse Tang, talk about his experience of the community forum.
On top of that, you also get a few extra bonuses:
- An on-going practice routine for after you’ve finished the bootcamp. This allows you to make consistent progress from as little as 5 minutes a day
- My Performance Booster Pack – a set of checklists and guided audios that you use on the day to get yourself in the right mindset to perform and to capture key lessons afterwards
- The Hack Your Practice Brain workshop. This hour-long workshop shares some of my best neuroscience-based tips for how to practice effectively
"Performance has gone from scary to exciting"
"I’d been performing for twenty years but suffered from nerves and never really performed at my best on stage. This course was a game-changer - I’m now probably double the performer I once was.
I’m much more confident on stage and I know how to deal with my nerves. Even better than that, I can now pull out far better performances under pressure than I would in my practice room. Performance has gone from being something scary to something exciting!
- Bryony Rickard (singer/saxophonist - UK)
"I can play with no self-judgement. Musical expression is fun again"
"After six weeks of learning new and challenging things, my biggest success has been that I can play the accordion again with no self-judgement; musical expression is fun again and, through this course I feel that my relationship to music has changed significantly.
This course has helped me enjoy my playing much more - isn't that what music is all about?"
- Angela Koufou (accordionist - Greece)
"I had no idea how significant my mental skills were"
"One of my greatest struggles was that I never managed to perform on stage or in the studio on the same level as during practice. It’s hard for me to control my nervousness and I was very afraid to make mistakes.
Unlock Your Performance showed me a new way to effectively deal with these weaknesses. I had no idea how significant my mental skills were and I had never learned to train them.
It has had such a huge impact on my playing. You’ll most certainly improve – no matter what level you are currently playing at. And you'll also increase the 'fun factor' of playing – no matter whether you are playing in your living room or on stage."
- Wolfgang Franz (guitarist and guitar teacher - Germany)
"Hugely transformative... Amazing value for money"
"Unlock your Performance maps out a clear way to a successful future for all serious musicians.
And it works! The course is hugely transformative and amazing value for money when I think back to all the thousands of pounds I’ve paid out in terrifying face to face lessons over the decades. A huge thank you, Mark."
- Anna Else (pianist)
How Much Is The Investment?
If you add up everything that you’ve spent on music – instruments, music lessons, books, and more – it’s probably already cost you thousands of dollars. It could easily be well over $10,000.
And that’s before you consider the cost of your time for all the hours that you’ve spent in the practice room…
And that’s still left you frustrated and falling short when you perform.
That’s why Unlock Your Performance is a steal at $399. When you train your mind in the right way you’ll finally be able to get full value for all the money and effort that you’ve spent in the past and can never get back.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can't find an answer to your question here? Then contact me.
Unlock Your Performance is mainly aimed at musicians who already perform for others in some context. This does not to be at a high-level - just playing for friends informally is fine.
However, there are two exceptions to this where people still tend to get a lot out of the course. So this might be for you IF:
- You find playing in front of your teacher in lessons very nerve wracking
- You’re planning to start performing for others but are feeling nervous about taking this step.
Yes. UYP works for singers, for any instrument and for any style of music.
It’s all about the mental skills involved in making and performing music so all the concepts and exercises are as relevant and as effective for singers as they are for instrumentalists.
There are students joining the course from countries all around the world. The US dollar is the currency that’s most familiar globally and so that’s what I use.
Eventually, you can get serious long-term progress by spending just 5 minutes a day on the exercises in the course (though you’ll get quicker and bigger results if you’re able to do more than this).
You’ll need to put in a couple of hours’ work per module first – to go through the lessons and get used to the exercises.
But you can go through the course at your own pace.
And this small investment of your time will pay for itself many times over. You’ll be able to get similar progress from a few minutes of mental training as from hours of “normal” music practice.
You will receive INSTANT digital access to the course. After you sign up, you’ll get an email straight away with all your login details and the link to access the dedicated course website.
Which means that just minutes from now you could be well on your way to skyrocketing your music performance...
There's nothing to ship, and you'll have access to the entire training program, plus bonuses, for life.
You can access the course on whatever device you prefer. Phone, laptop, tablet etc - they all work just fine.
The lessons are primarily delivered through video, but there’s audio and text too if you prefer. Plus, you get downloadable pdf worksheets and checklists to support the key concepts and exercises.
Testimonials From Past Students
"I've seen a huge improvement in my enjoyment of playing and performing"
"I 100% would recommend Unlock Your Performance. I've only been doing the course for three months, but already I've found a huge improvement in my music. I used to think that you're either musical or you're not. So you're born with that ability to get up on stage or you're born with that ability to practice well. And that's something I always thought that I didn't have. But I discovered that you can work on that, and you can get better with practice. I've seen a huge improvement in my enjoyment levels of playing and performing, which is something I never thought I would ever be able to do."
- Sarah Gallagher (singer-songwriter)
"This is a huge breakthrough for me. Your method worked a true miracle."
"All summer I used the lessons in the course to help me give 30 minute performances to small audiences on my porch. Things got a little better with each performance, which encouraged me, but then...WOW! The real benefit showed up in my last two performances this past weekend. Your method worked a true miracle. The day of each performance I was appropriately excited but not threateningly so. While playing I was able to let go, stay focused, get back in focus when I lost it, let mistakes go, and remind myself of the beauty I was creating in each moment.
This is a huge breakthrough for me and it simply wouldn’t have been possible without your personal help. I can’t thank you enough for all the gems I learned, and I sincerely hope every suffering performer finds their way to Unlock Your Performance."
- Nina Grimaldi
"It's been life-changing. Anybody, whatever stage they're at, would stand to benefit from this"
"It’s been life-changing – as a musician it will help immeasurably. Anybody, whatever stage they’re at as a performer would stand to benefit from this.
You offered to be our personal guide until it became natural for us to guide ourselves. You had my back."
- Sarah Chaplin (singer/saxophonist)
As featured in:
"After only a week of the course it was a joy for me to be out there"
"I have been a musician most of my life. However my mind was holding me back from really playing for an audience. Immediately after joining Unlock Your Performance I had a gig at the local folk club. I had played there with my band before and had been stressed out before I went on stage. This time, after only a week of the course, I went up there without a care in the world and did what I had to do. It was a joy for me to be out there.
Bootcamp was also a great experience. Amazing that one recording a week can simulate the real deal, but it does. I am already seeing a great improvement in my playing.
I have been into this mind thing for some time, I meditate on a regular basis and read works from some of the great teachers. What I found is that UYP is like the practical application of all I have learned. It has been a game changer for me and I look forward to continuing the work that Mark has started me on."
- Chris Gregg
"It's like a problem lasting 10 years or more has disappeared overnight"
"Dear Mark, I've benefitted hugely from your course and wanted to let you know that. Sticking to your advice has moved me from years of misery to a sustainable learning routine. It's like a problem lasting 10 years or more has disappeared overnight by bringing order, purpose and structure in my practice as I've never had before. I'm so happy and grateful."
- Michaela Halt (Germany)
"Intense, inspirational training... Any musician cannot help but be enriched"
"I just completed Unlock Your Performance: 6 weeks of intense, inspirational training to help musicians reach the full learning and performance capacity they have been seeking, perhaps for years. I am preparing my final recital for a masters in performance and have often experienced crippling performance anxiety, lack of focus and negative thinking and expectations about outcomes, which have distracted me from reaching my full potential and especially, finding joy in playing.
UYP so insightfully addresses these and many other problems in a step by step approach which not only begins to bear fruit as one goes through the course, but will remain as an invaluable resource for the future growth of any musician. Mark follows each participant in a very personal, expert and caring way. The material is rich with both psychological insights and the well-documented skills that will help each musician reach the goal. Any musician taking this course cannot help but be enriched. The community sharing of thoughts and performances is also a great plus. Highly recommended. I will keep the material preciously for future reference and ongoing study."
- Chloe de Stockalper (pianist - USA)
"I have made huge progress... My music teacher is very pleased"
"The course was really great for me and I have continued to use it. I have made huge progress with my playing since doing it . My music teacher is very pleased with my progress"
- Philip Cross (saxophonist)
"My concern was that I had never done an online course before"
"I was really excited about training my mind. But my concern was that I had never done an online course before. Doing this course has been the best thing I have done this year because it has already had an impact on my performances and taken the edge off my pre-performance nerves. This has been a revelation to me.
I would recommend the course to any musician who wants to enjoy performing more and feel a greater sense of satisfaction when they share their music with others. The course is unique in that it goes very deep. Plenty of easy-to-understand information in the right sized chunks, lots of real-world examples and inspiring quotes. I absolutely loved it. It has been the highlight of my year."
- Julia Taranto (pianist - Australia)
"Thank you for a life-changing course"
"Each module has something that resonates psychologically, and practically, for the student. This is not just for now, but acts as a reference for developing musicians over a long period. With this different approach to practice I can already hear the benefits.
Thank you for a life-changing, music-changing, person-changing course. I'm very chuffed to have completed it and I know that I will be referring to it often."
- Hilda Henderson (pianist - Australia)
"I was hesitant to spend several hundred bucks... but I’m glad I did"
"I have played with some really good musicians in my time, but felt frustrated that I could never reach the levels they had achieved despite all the years of practicing and playing I have put in. I know now that I can be a lot better, and more importantly, a lot more satisfied thanks to the confidence I have gained from Unlock Your Performance.
One thing that impressed me about Mark’s approach is that it is based on scientific research into how the brain works. He teaches methods that are used by high performance athletes as well as world-class musicians to achieve their maximum potential. He teaches mental exercises that can be practiced just like scales and chord progressions.
I was initially hesitant to spend several hundred bucks on Mark’s course but I’m glad I did. In six weeks I went from thinking I should be a better musician to believing I can be a better musician. If I can do it, so can anyone. It’s never too late to change!"
- Rosco Bell (guitarist - Canada)
"The tools gave me breakthroughs. Confidence and courage replaced fear."
"I have spent 18 years trying to master traditional fiddle styles. Progress had been frustratingly slow. I liked the look of Unlock Your Performance, but am always suspicious of quick fixes so looked at the reviews first. I learnt that the course was complex and quite long, but everyone was convinced that improvements were happening.
Over two months later, I’m one of those people. Many tools introduced during the Bootcamp gave me breakthrough moments of understanding. My outlook started, and then continued to change. Confidence and courage replaced fear.
The course has such detail, depth and well-planned structure that it’s thoroughly engaging. I can wholeheartedly recommend Unlock Your Performance to anyone who is prepared to commit to it. I‘m so glad I did!"
- Susan Sigsworth (fiddle)
"I was concerned that it might be too difficult"
"Before joining the course I was concerned that it might be too difficult or that it was “just another course”. As a result of taking the course, though, I became more objective about my own playing. I lost my fear of making mistakes, and learned how to use what skills I already had and to be more optimistic about being able to improve step by step. Mark gave very full feedback on assignments so it has felt like a supportive conversation.
An unexpected result is that I have also got better at asking other players how they do things rather than trying to pretend I already know – I didn’t anticipate that.
I would certainly recommend the course. In the past I have looked for people who can show me how to play. That can be useful, but really the only person who can learn how to play is yourself. This course focuses on the mental attitudes and practices you need to do that. I was very pleased with the course."
- John Bayley (guitarist and singer)
