Perform Your Best With Less Stress Workshop — Tom Kamp
March 16 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Wharton Institute for the Performing Arts (WIPA) presents a “Perform Your Best with Less Stress” Workshop with faculty member Thomas Kamp on Saturday, March 16 at 3:00 p.m. at 60 Locust Avenue in Berkeley Heights. The workshop, based on the teachings of sports and music performance psychologist Dr. Don Greene, is for students of any age or experience level. The workshop is free and open to the public. Participants are encouraged to bring their instrument and a prepared piece of music. For more information, call 908-790-0700.
Students will learn how to quiet the mind, prepare the body, and focus their energy in order to perform their best. Kamp will explore how breathing, visual focus, and centering the body can result in peak performance, including the use of a “cue word” and developing an inner hearing of the music to generate a strong artistic intention.
Says Kamp, “This workshop will help students create their own “pre-performance routine” which can be incorporated into their daily practice to bring their performances to a new level. Techniques covered are applicable to recitals, auditions, concerts, lessons, and even to help you practice more effectively every time you make music.”
