What others are saying...
"I began working with Amy in 2015 after attending her presentations at the Lisa Gasteen National Opera School. I was really impressed by the way in which her approach to performance coaching is based on an understanding of neurological processes and a knowledge of the latest research. These aspects, combined with her own professional experience, have been of great help to me in dealing with the challenges of performing and of the profession in general. I recommend her very highly to all performing musicians, whether professional or student."
Penelope, Pianist/Vocal Coach
"In any elite activity there comes a time when there is a gap between what you are physically capable of and what you are mentally capable of. Amy has been instrumental for me in starting to close this gap. She is kind, supportive and caring, and has given me so many tools that have allowed me to access more of my potential.
In my opinion Amy is an invaluable resource for any performer and I would highly recommend her. "
Bronwyn Douglass, Mezzo-soprano
"I discovered Amy and her performance coaching, for helping a close relative who is a pilot with a major international airline. A series of circumstances had badly affected his confidence while going through an important and highly stressful promotion process. Amy’s expertise and care made sure that he was prepared to win the mind game throughout the whole process. I highly recommend her coaching for anyone needing help with performance under pressure, fast - no matter what career they are in."

"Amy Radford is an intelligent and superb presenter who impressed all at the conference with her personable, engaged and lucid command of the subject matter. Her first hand knowledge of performance issues really helped and her understanding of the relevant scientific insight was most impressive. Anyone involved in public performance will benefit from her knowledge and experience. Amy has an exceptional ability to bring this across and assist people in developing the complex skills of sustainable success."
