Fact: Students are hungry for practice tips and a new kind of empowered, positive, and truly 21st century approach in the practice room.

As a workshop presenter, I fold the latest positive psychology research and high performance tips into dynamic, entertaining & interactive workshops with students. Workshops have kept students buzzing long after the standing ovation and help students progress faster, become smart practicers, and take charge of their own destiny. Explore my most popular workshops below.


Empowered Practice

Interactive workshop about practice psychology, habits, and the powerful way we can make our journey more positive.

Discipline & Resilience for Musicians

Learn how to cultivate your D&R chops purposefully, you'll need them in music! Psychology tricks can help us build better habits and become more daring.

Tech in Practice

I demo cool apps with students, using my iPad and a screen (with volunteers on their instruments from the audience). Music, sports, and time management apps.

Stage Fright Training

Stagefright is normal, but nerves of steel can be learned. Simulation training, breath work, psychological tools, and powerful wind-ups give students the tools to tackle stage fright. A heart rate monitor shows them that it really works.

The Artist Athlete: Injury Prevention for Musicians

Protect the Asset! Injury Prevention for Musicians with all the statistics, realities, and remedies for instrumentalists and singers.

Susanna Klein has an uncommon ability to connect with students - her blend of humor, warmth, and genuine excitement about music and teaching create an atmosphere ideal for student learning and exploration.
The presentation  as a whole is really motivating. I know so much more now, and know how to implement strategies.
Susanna’s insights into how students learn and how to help them become more effective in their practicing is great, but not simply because of her pedagogical acumen - it is her ability to help students discover, or rediscover, joy in music-making that makes her approach special. Her enthusiasm is contagious!
♡ it and ♡ you - it was great. Having the stats  gave me a whole new perspective.
 Entirely to the point, thoroughly researched, Susanna's lecture in its delivery left the college students informed and enlightened.
