The University of Evansville recently held a workshop presented by Noa Kageyama, a performance psychologist.
Topics that were included in the workshop: “Energy:
How to beat performance anxiety and play your best when it counts; Focus: How
to quiet your inner critic and get into the zone; Courage: How to get past your
fears and doubts and perform fearlessly under pressure; Preparation: Practice
techniques to help you thrive under pressure.”
The workshop was set up to aid in the education of people to
teach them techniques and using sport psychology so they can perform to the
level of their abilities while in situations of high pressure. In attendance at
the event were Evansville students and community members.
Currently employed by The Juilliard School and the New World
Symphony, Kageyama is a conservatory-trained violinist with degrees
from Juilliard and Oberlin. He has expert knowledge on performance pressure
during his time performing on stage since the age of two. Having performed in
the orchestra and at international competitions, he knows what it takes to
overcome performance pressure.
Four different sessions were held in Wheeler Concert
Hall on Oct. 14; they were free and open to the public.
