  • Hello Daren,

    I thought I’d give you a little update on the mediation vs performance anxiety. I had a rehearsal for a gig I am doing in November. Before I started mediation, I would have this apprehension even prior to a rehearsal, this would fade after the initial warm up stage of the rehearsal and then I would ok.

    it’s hard that, not getting bogged down with technique.

  • Hi Daren,

    Thanks for the reccommendation! I will have a read. I’m doing beginner’s mindfulness meditation as well as loving kindness. I’ve only done a few sessions and it seems to be getting easier to at least sit there and breathe. Will let you know how I go when I have my first rehearsal.

  • This looks like a great place to share some things I have experienced. I worked as a professional singer for 5 years after finishing drama school and had to stop as my performance anxiety got the better of me. The last professional gig I did was 4 years ago when I froze on stage in front of thousands of people, unable to sing and had to walk off…[Read more]
