Stage Fright: What Is It, and What Can Be Done About It?
The single biggest problem in performance, the most misunderstood, the most well-meaning “personal and home remedies” and even some charlatanism offered up to deal with it, the most “personally misdiagnosed” malady. I know because I suffered from it terribly, and so did my students.
We work hard to prepare, but nothing works to fix the fear right? What if there is just one more thing we haven’t tried? Wouldn’t that be a relief? There is!
What if we could play everything above tempo, well before a performance instead of working on hard sections up to that day? We can. What if we could play exactly how we play at home or in the practice room? We can, and with less reps and work.
