About the Performance Mastery Course.

The Performance Mastery Course is designed for musicians, singers, dancers, actors, and public speakers who want to perform their best when it really counts. This course teaches performers how to channel nervous energy, build confidence, strengthen courage, intensify focus, and develop resilience.

If you have ever wondered…

What is holding me back from performing my best under pressure?

Then this is the course for you!

The Performance Mastery Course is similar to the cutting-edge information that I taught at The Juilliard School, New World Symphony, Colburn School, and to my professional clients, but now updated and expanded. With it, I have trained thousands of performing artists to win jobs and have great performances. You can now access this information from the comfort of your home or studio. The course is four months long, with a brand new Performance Mastery Assessment and Profile, and the acompanying workbook, videos, and audio programs.

Your Instructor.

Dr. Don Greene, a peak performance psychologist, has taught his comprehensive approach to peak performance mastery at The Juilliard School, Colburn School, New World Symphony, Los Angeles Opera Young Artists Program, Vail Ski School, Perlman Music Program, and US Olympic Training Center. During his thirty-two year career, he has coached more than 1,000 performers to win professional auditions and has guided countless solo performers to successful careers. Some of the performing artists with whom Dr. Greene has worked have won jobs with the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony, San Francisco Opera, Montreal Symphony, Pittsburgh Symphony, National Symphony, Cincinnati Symphony, Pacific Northwest Ballet, and the Dance Theatre of Harlem, to name just a few. Of the Olympic track and field athletes he worked with up until and through the 2016 Games in Rio, 14 won medals, including 5 gold. Dr. Greene has authored ten books including Audition Success, Fight Your Fear & WinPerformance Success, and College Prep for Musicians. In 2017, Dr. Greene was named a TED Educator and collaborated with musician Dr. Annie Bosler to produce the TED-Ed How to practice effectively…for just about anything. The video went viral receiving over 31 million views across Facebook and YouTube.


"Dr. Greene teaches the focus necessary to be at your best when it counts the most."

– James Fayette, New York City Ballet, Former Principal Dancer

“My wife Akiko Tarumoto and I refer all the time to a heavily dog-eared copy of her workbook from your Juilliard class.”

– Nathan Cole, Los Angeles Philharmonic, First Associate Concertmaster

“The work I did with Don at Juilliard laid the foundation for fearless performing. He taught me how to turn the most outlandish ideas into reality.”

– Maria Miller, Sonic Escape and Former Riverdance Violinist
