How To Turn Performance Anxiety Into Performance Excitement

March 21, 2011

Hey Everybody,

In case you’ve never come across it, San Francisco Classical Voice is really fantastic website that’s been around since the first big internet boom in the late ’90s.  Although it bills itself as “The Go-To Place For Classical Music In the Bay Area”, I’m tempted to put a “[sic]” after their motto, because there’s so much material that will be of interest to any musician or fan of classical music.

Their recent article on performance anxiety seemed right up the IPAP alley, so I thought I’d share it with you here.  The author, Dana Fonteneau, is a cello-playing friend of mine who has done a lot of work on the mental aspects of performance.  She practices psychology in the Bay Area.

Read it there, and if you have any comments and/or thoughts, please share them here @IPAP.
