Registration for Spring term (Mar-Jun 2022) is now open!
This is an in-person music course, held at the VSO School
This 6-part class, led by VSO musicians Olivia Blander & Julia Lockhart, is an inclusive, non-judgmental exploration of many different strategies to help students at all levels understand and manage performance anxiety, rather than a one-size-fits-all approach. Topics will include the universality of performance anxiety, setting reasonable goals, positive thinking and motivation, addressing negative thoughts and perfectionism, and integrating mindfulness into practicing and performance. It aims to help participants feel supported, courageous, and empowered.
The course is designed to combine discussion with experiential learning, so students are strongly encouraged to perform.
