Break Down The Fear Wall is Luther Mallory's leading seminar on Artist mental health covering topics that performers rarely discuss, but are affected by daily on their paths towards becoming professional Artists.
The Fear Wall Seminar changes the conversation on Artist mental health.
Luther tackles fear, depression, attitude, overwhelm and other mental/emotional barriers that affect the progress of almost every Artist in pursuit of the dream.
Luther Mallory brings the live music strategies and methods he has used to coach Artists from every major label, the JUNO Master Class, and CMI's Artist Entrepreneur Program to Artists across North America.
In this high-energy live seminar event, Luther works spontaneously with Artists in the audience to demonstrate how focus and energy can create an emotionally connected performance in an instant.
Luther then works on stage with a band or solo Artist to design a dynamic, expressive, visual, undeniable show for the small club or big stage that feels connected for both the Artist, and the audience.
This small group workshop is an extension of Luther Mallory's Artist mental health seminar, Break Down The Fear Wall.
After a trust-building conversation with the Artists about the psychological elements of performance like over-thinking, fear, obsessive judgement, and self-doubt, Luther forms
"The Circle" and the real work begins.
Part improv class, part therapy session, and part live performance, "The Circle" offers the Artists no place to hide. Each Artist, Luther included, performs in the middle of
"The Circle", with no musical accompaniment, surround by the other Artists.
Luther works to identify each Artist's mental/emotional barriers and coaches them to push past their limiting beliefs and into the connected, present moment where Artists feel the most freedom to express themselves.
Luther Mallory brings his private coaching work to any Label, Management Company, Agency, or Organization with a roster of Artists.
In Luther's Performance Bootcamp, Artists work with Luther privately in 2 hour sessions to tackle methods for designing an undeniable show that connects with the audience while addressing the mental/emotional barriers that are holding the Artists back from taking chances and truly making an impact.
This is the same format Luther uses to coach both the JUNO Master Class Artists and the Artists from CMI's Artist Entrepreneur Program.
