Don’t Sweat it: mindful performance practice
Do you find performing stressful, even when playing for your grandmother? Do you find that the performance doesn’t go as well as you hoped even after hours of practice?
Here’s a way to transform nervousness into excitement and make those butterflies fly in formation!
Rebecca Blair and Prem Selver will be co-teaching a workshop on performing.
Prem Selver, a teacher of Mindfulness will be our guest who will take participants step by step through mindfulness practises to order to prepare for a performance. Students will bring a piece, an exercise or even a phrase that they would like to perform by the end of the workshop. These invaluable skills can help reduce anxiety and stress anywhere in life.
