I first picked up the violin at age 2, and spent the next 20+ years battling performance anxiety and wondering why I couldn’t play on stage like I did in the practice room.
Then, I went to Juilliard and discovered sport psychology – which totally changed my playing and opened my eyes to a whole new world to explore. After graduation, I put my violin down to get a Ph.D. in psychology. And now, I’m back at Juilliard, but on the faculty, where I teach musicians how to utilize the same skills and techniques that elite athletes have used for decades.
If you’d like to become a more confident, skilled, and “bulletproof” musician, I’d love to share with you what I’ve learned.
