Erika Qureshi, oboe
What are the mental, emotional and physiological effects of performance anxiety, specifically as they pertain to life as an oboist? What exactly is performance anxiety? Why does it occur? What are the symptoms? How can I work through and overcome it? All of these questions will be addressed in relation to practice, performance, reeds and pedagogy in hopes of helping musicians gain deeper understanding and resilience under pressure.
