Manage stage fright, performance anxiety, tension or nerves

Many music lovers want to play, but are overwhelmed by frustration. Creating a positive practice attitude is the path to joyful music making. Stage fright, nerves, performance anxiety or tension all interfere with the fun of music. Learning to manage these creates a positive relationship to audiences and paves the way for real confidence in performance.

Performance Confidence

Manage performance anxiety, stage fright, nerves or tension

Competence at the instrument is not all it takes to be a performer. There are things we can do which make performance, or practice either a negative or a positive experience.

Most of us have enough positive experience to keep us going through all the negative experiences, but recognise scope for playing to be more fun. With a background in performance and the constructive thinking skills of Alexander Technique, Jeremy can help guide players of all ages and abilities to find more confidence and comfort in playing.

This is not just dealing with performance anxiety, or stage fright. Many musicians feel frustration even when practicing at home alone. Sometimes the feedback we are given, or the way we have interpreted our teachers’ or critics’ advice can be very demotivating. Learning to navigate through this is a way to make playing a more energising and joyful experience for yourself. Naturally, this will flow on into more inspired public performance.

Jeremy can also assist with coaching on other aspects of performance, personal and musical presentation.

Suitable for musicians of any instrument, genre, age or ability.
