As distinct from teaching, coaching is discussion-based and is without an instrument. For this reason, practice and performance coaching can be offered to any musician, performer, teacher, parent or carer. Topics typically include motivation and purposeful practice to enhance confidence and commitment in performance. Fulfilment in practice will reduce anxieties in performance.
Investment and reward in practice are pivotal to confidence and commitment in performance. From developing an efficient and structured practice process that is both fulfilling and productive to working with and managing anxieties that enable you to perform at your best consistently with confidence and commitment.

Recognising the significance of Performance Science, Victoria Samek introduces OPC, a new and ground-breaking process for the 21st century performer, bringing together the theory of why with the practicalities of how! The fully integrated online digital courses and the ‘Playing with Science’ lectures will be launched in January 2021. But you can have a first-hand taster of this ground-breaking and inspirational approach by booking a lesson or coaching session.
Science is the voice of reason and art is the voice of creativity. Together they make a harmonious partnership. Victoria Samek
“As a professional musician who has suffered with acute performance anxiety, particularly with auditions, I have found Victoria’s explanations a revelation. It is allowing me, through thinking scientifically to cut out the negative internal dialogue and preconceptions and focus purely on the job of music making. In the past I would have thought that the act of working in this manner would inhibit my playing even more but it has had quite the opposite effect”. Professional Double Bass Musician
