Young musicians: Do you feel anxious when you perform?
There's a recital coming up in early June at the Conservatory. Is stage fright preventing you from performing in it?
For some young musicians, their stage fright is so intense they don't even want to perform any more.
What if you were able to get up in front of a crowd and perform without fear?
How amazing would it be to be able to show off your stuff this June and to give a moving performance, all the while feeling totally comfortable and relaxed?
"Performance Without Stage Fright" is a workshop for young musicians whose performance anxiety gets in the way of their ability to perform.
In this workshop we will uncover any fear-based beliefs about performance, as well as habits of body and mind which cause performance anxiety.
By the end of this workshop, young musicians will have some practical tools for relieving the stage fright that might otherwise prevent them from performing in this upcoming recital, and beyond.
This workshop is based on the principles of the Alexander Technique, a mindfulness-based method of relieving tension and anxiety. Joseph Arnold is a violinist, Alexander Technique teacher, and founder of Pain-Free Music. Joseph has taught at the Conservatory for 6 years.
