The workshop will include:

  • Exploring the symptoms of music performance anxiety and the affect these have on performing.

  • Identifying some of the common causes of music performance anxiety. Participants will also be encouraged to self-reflect on how their own experiences may have contributed to their performance anxiety.

  • Looking at the habits, behaviours and unhelpful coping strategies that can make music performance anxiety worse.

  • Learning pre- performance and mid- performance techniques that can help manage performance anxiety, as well as some longer term actions to take.


This workshop is facilitator lead, with group discussion and an opportunity to discuss your own experiences with performance anxiety.

"...Music performance anxiety can be debilitating and if left unmanaged can negatively impact one’s career. By helping young artists to understand and overcome their music performance anxiety we are supporting them to maintain and move forward in their music career."
