Through personalized coaching and tailored techniques, the Sleep Performance Program empower DJ’s, music producers, and performing artists to harness the power of quality sleep, enabling them to excel in their craft like never before.

The SLEEP Performance PrograMme

Feeling tired? Don’t get enough sleep? Suffering from performance anxiety? No matter what you do on a daily basis, we all know that a good night’s sleep is key. But if have to perform in front of a crowd every night, or work until the early hours of the morning, it might not always be possible.

The environment that DJs, music producers and performing artists has to work in is very demanding, and can lead to sleep deprivation, insomnia and performance anxiety, which will lead to you not being at your best.

The Sleep Performance Programme is designed to help you become the best in your field, by using sleep as the ultimate performance tool. This way, you will thrive on producing your best music and perform in front of thousands without feeling fatigued.

Working With Elite Music And DJ Producers from Around The Globe

I have found that most of the people in the music industry suffer from lack of sleep quality, lack of mental and recovery strategies during the day, has up and down quality food intake and struggle to switch their brain off at night. These are the people I have worked with from around the world, starting by understanding the work schedule of each DJ, producer and performing artist, and taking them through various sleep and recovery assessment tools. I give one-on-one coaching and provide a sleep performance program as well as various cognitive and warm-up plans for performing on stage.

The Sleep Performance Programme recovery assessments include tools like assessing your sleep chronotype combined with an online chronotype test. Here, we match your energy needs for the day with your unique schedule, so that you do the right performance tasks during the day and evening. I also do a sleep science assessment where I look at any sleep hygiene issues, insomnia or sleep deprivation problem

Every DJ, music producer and/or performing artist that I work with is given an individual sleep performance based on their chronotype and performance needs. In addition to this, I have also provided programs around cognitive fitness, where we look at how we can keep the brain fit to cope with the demands in the music industry. I have also provided a warm-up strategy combined with basic brain fitness and dynamic movement exercises to help prepare them before going on stage for a performance.
