Today, we're celebrating Stephanie Michele Ruddy, Violin! 🎉

It constantly amazes me what's possible when people have a dream, let go of what's blocking them, do the work and GO for it. That's exactly what Stephanie Michele Ruddy did. I am beyond thrilled for her!!!!!

Here's her story, which is included in my book (see her picture below):

“It's been a few years from the time I discovered Jennifer and the Art of Freedom® Method for conscious living and masterful artistry. To simply say this program changed my life would be a massive understatement.

There is not a single aspect of my life that didn't improve and get easier as a result of this work. I'm in my 40s and things that I'd struggled with my entire life are now so far removed from my human experience that it's actually hard to remember how they used to affect me. I'm talking about behaviors, thoughts, and habits.

I wasn't looking for this kind of change. I wanted to be a better musician. I wanted to be able to perform without crippling anxiety. I wanted to find joy in practicing and confidence in my abilities. I did get all of that, but I also got so much more.

When I began this journey with Jennifer I was hardly practicing. I could barely keep up in community orchestra. And I didn't have a single past experience of performance or audition that wasn't hindered by physical manifestations of anxiety and crippling self doubt and negative thinking despite years of high quality training and a bachelor's in violin performance.

I'm about to graduate for a degree in violin performance. The fact that I decided to pursue this at all is the biggest testimony of my complete mindset change. I was done with institutionalized learning. Done. I swore I would never step foot in a university again. But here I am. And I'm thriving. I'm performing all the time and enjoying every bit of it. Even solo performances which I previously had no interest in.

I'm now playing professionally in several orchestras as a section violinist and won an audition for a principle second violin seat in one of them. I also managed to get on the sub list for my absolute dream orchestra job and I've been able to work for them twice. I was able to show up to those services prepared and calm and I enjoyed every single moment of it.

Practicing is now my absolute favorite thing to do. I love the exploration and approach every day with curiosity and gratitude. I also learned from Jennifer how to be incredibly efficient with my time. I'm a mother of two and the manager of our household, I teach private lessons to children, and I took on this graduate degree and all these additional jobs and still I'm able to manage practicing so that I'm able to show up feeling prepared for everything.

It's nothing short of miraculous.

I continue to practice Art of Freedom Method every single day in all areas of my life and it keeps working. Everything keeps getting easier. I also have maintained some incredible friendships and support from the people who were in The Musicians Advantage Facebook group at the same time as my private coaching. I think about what I've accomplished in two years and I'm excited to see what the future holds.

This was the best investment I've ever made. I can't recommend this life changing program enough.”

ical pain, performance anxiety, or emotional suffering related to your music, I'm a firm believer that there is always hope, and I'd love to bring that hope your way.
