Stagefright Workshop with Karin Schaupp

On Wednesday 4th April, NECOM scholarship students were treated to a workshop on Stage Fright led by Karin Schaupp, one of Australia’s leading guitarists with a professional expertise in performance anxiety management. Karin’s interest in stage fright led her to write two theses on the subject, in which she worked with a sports psychologist to develop a programme for musicians. Our students were introduced to a combined treatment approach which uses a number of self-help techniques, including cognitive techniques, relaxation and imagery.
