Performance Anxiety

Here are some notes on combating performance anxiety.

Ways to combat performance anxiety:

  1. Visualize your performance
  2. Put the moment into perspective
  3. Try playing cold turkey
  4. Wear yourself out first (running up a flight of stairs before playing does this perfectly)
  5. Tape yourself
  6. Have others listen
  7. Deep breaths
  8. Affirmation
  9. Stay hydrated
  • Practice technique and success are directly correlated to your nerves.
  • Pick your goals, and make them attainable.
  • Measure your success yourself.
