Are you used to overcoming obstacles in life but feel puzzled when it comes to performance anxiety? Perhaps you are already comfortable speaking and presenting in public, yet unable to play or sing confidently in front of people. Or, despite your love of performing, you are simply terrified of being in the spotlight.

If you would like to build confidence to perform for others and find a sense of freedom and self-expression in your music-making, teaching, presenting or other performance, this online course is for you. During these live interactive sessions, we will discover a series of theoretical concepts and practical tasks that will provide you with a clear roadmap to prepare for a performance. We will explore the physiology of the anxiety mechanism and the “tool shed” concept of approaches in depth (including movement, functional breathing and focus), introduce cognitive rehearsal strategies and investigate links between anxiety and nutrition while identifying bespoke daily rituals and routines.

The course is open to musicians and other creative practitioners / educators of all levels of ability and experience.

Tuition will take place online via Zoom. Classes will be supplemented with a detailed resource handout, intervention videos, unlimited email consultation during the course and an opportunity to stay in touch for ongoing support and free performance forums after the course.
