Interview with Dr. Noa Kageyama: Curing Stage Fright

March 22, 2013 at 7:33 PM

Do you suffer from performance anxiety? Have you wondered about taking beta blockers for stage fright? Do you wish you could perform as well as you play in your practice room?

Dr. Noa Kageyama is a Juilliard-trained violinist who, due to a brush with fate, decided to pursue his doctorate in psychology with an emphasis in performance anxiety. What is exciting about Dr. Kageyama is that he is able to combine first-hand experience as a performer with his training and expertise as a psychologist, giving him an informed approach in helping other performers.

He has a blog, bulletproofmusician.com, which has extremely thought-provoking articles on overcoming those demons. I spoke with him about stage fright, how to overcome it, and also something about a raisin. Check it out!

Noa has a true understanding of our art. He's been able to help many colleagues of mine. His process is not a quick fix, but it's the real way to understanding yourself as a performer!
