Performing Arts – How to Gain Confidence on Stage

Do you suffer from stage fright?

Do you begin to panic and really doubt yourself before those big performances?

Are you worried what others will think and how you will be judged?

Perhaps you perform amazingly in practice but can’t replicate it in front of the audience?

If you are a musician, a singer, or a creative artist, you must be confident and relaxed and your peak performance must come from deep within you – all that you are and all that you have learned and on the inspiration of the moment. You become the music, not yourself.

Ann has worked with many artists over the last 20 years from opera singers to pianists, from bass players to flutists, from violinists to percussion and brass players. She also taught Performance Psychology for 8 years at the leading Australian visual and performing arts training institution, the Victoria College of the Arts, University of Melbourne.

The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra.
Let Ann take you too, from ordinary to extraordinary.

From my personal experience and in observing Ann Quinn’s methods as they relate specifically to performance psychology, I have no hesitation in recording my opinion that she is one of the most remarkable communicators and ‘problem solvers’ that I have come across in my career as a performing musician and as an academic. Her great expertise is enhanced by a personality which is both inspiring and endearing.
