General Information

Conquer Stage Fright: Perform with Confidence!
Are the jitters, shakes, and fear of mistakes getting in your way as a performer? As a young musician I was never taught how to manage stage fright. I was told to take a deep breath, practice a lot, and imagine the audience in their underwear—not much help. What were you told? I hope you weren't told to eat a banana. As a performance psychologist and singer, I understand the physiology and the psychology of stage fright. This workshop offers effective and practical tools proven to get stage fright off your stage and move you forward with confidence. A full mental-skills tool box makes performing fun, exciting, and satisfying!
