Overcoming stage fright

“If I didn’t get nervous before a concert, I might as well
perform in the bathroom.” 

Itzhak Perlman

Lampenfieber bei MusikernThe great violinist Itzhak Perlman is actually saying that nerves and excitement before a concert are perfectly normal, even a necessity. They provide us with just that extra bit of energy which enables us to walk out on stage and give our best.

This workshop teaches a variety of enhancing and supporting techniques taken from sport psychology, hypnotherapy, body psychotherapy and self-assertiveness training to help us deal with an excess of adrenaline and excitement before concerts. The goal is to create a space for the optimal state of mind in which we are able to give our best and reach our full potential in performance.

The seminar covers the following topics:

  • Bridging the gap between practising and performing
  • Defining a personal goal
  • Managing adrenaline
  • The art of self-care
  • Building self-confidence
  • Mental preparation
  • In the Green Room
  • Creating a safe space on stage
  • Performing in Flow



“I was very excited about how my audition went. I really surprised myself by enjoying every minute and feeling disappointed when I had to stop. Thanks so much for getting me back into enjoying music as a professional again.”

Cathy Irons, violinist, Christchurch, New Zealand
