UNSW Music Performance Unit | Overcoming Performance Anxiety

29 October 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm AEDT

FREE ONLINE WORKSHOP

If you dread the thought of getting up in front of a group of people and performing, you are not alone. Millions of people suffer from performance anxiety, commonly called “stage fright.” Studies have shown that most people would rather get the flu than perform. Athletes, musicians, actors, and public speakers often get performance anxiety.

Nearly any situation can trigger performance anxiety, from competing in a sporting event, to taking a test in school, to parallel parking while your friends are watching.

Join our expert panel: Greta Bradman, Soprano, Psychologist and Radio Broadcaster; David Griffiths, Associate Professor of Music and Australia Ensemble UNSW Clarinettist; and Georgia Winkcup, Australian Olympian and UNSW Alumna, to learn about performance anxiety, and what we can do to perform our best.

Please note: The webinar will be recorded and housed following the live event on the MPU website. By registering, participants agree to their image being captured and used in this way. Participants are welcome to turn cameras off.

This event is supported by the UNSW Division of Equity Diversity & Inclusion, as part of Diversity Fest 2021
