In this episode with Dr. Noa Kageyama, founder of the Bulletproof Musician:
- How understanding Performance Psychology can help performers step up their game
- Nerves and anxiety for the performing artists: Factors, causes, and solutions.
- Simulation of performance environment and performance conditions during practice.
“The better we know ourselves, the better we know what happens under pressure, the more effectively we can prepare for those things.”
“An excuse really becomes an excuse when you use it to justify not doing more to prepare.”
