Description A practical workshop with Gregory Daubney MSc MBPsS and Dr Alison Daubney, authors of Performance anxiety: A practical guide for music teachers, published by the ISM Trust. This workshop explores many of the common underlying causes of performance anxiety and helps teachers identify its presence in their day-to-day work. Participants will take part in a series of practical exercises to try out a range of strategies across three key time-frames over which anxiety commonly occurs. This course will provide music teachers working across all contexts and with pupils of all ages with easy to use, practical strategies informed by rigorous psychological research to integrate throughout their own practice and positively enhance their students’ development over time.
