Has this ever happened to you, too...

that you should do a presentation and you felt as if every word was just stuck in your throat?

Did your heart race and were you afraid people might hear your heart pounding? Did your head turn red like a tomato or did your face  turn pale like a corpse?

As a musician...

Did you ever have an audition or public play where you could not think anything else but "when is it finally over" and you could not wait to get off the stage?

Did your knees and/or fingers shiver and were you unable to controll them properly?

About me

When I was young...

something happened during my music study that has influenced me on a profound level: I had a stage freight attack.

During the main audion for a Beethoven Sonata that I was playing on the piano from stage it was like in a horror movie. I played the notes like a machine. In my head I could not stop thinking: "when is this going to end". There was hesitancy in the audience when they were applauding. My panicky mood had transferred to the audience! 

I could barely move and I wanted to shrink to the size of a mouse and hide in a mousehole. I don't remember how I got off the stage that day.

To add to my mysery the director came to me and gave me a devastating feedback: "your charisma and energy is not enough for being on stage".

I had a big crisis after this incident, followed by a deep depression over the next couple of months. Luckily one of my colleagues offered some information about stage freight coaching.

This coaching has changed my live. After a only a few months I could play the piano vividly and expressively, without any fear. I am thankful for this experience and the resulting learning & growing. I am now passing on this knowledge of how the mindset can influence our performance on stage in my coachings.

If you recognized yourself in any of these experiences I encourage you to book a free consultation with me to find out if and how I can help you.

I'm looking forward to it!
