Dr. Noa Kageyama, performance psychologist, talks about a 1 week audition countdown, Part 6 (Day 4).
Performance psychologist Dr. Noa Kageyama serves on the faculty of The Juilliard School and the New World Symphony, where he specializes in teaching performing artists how to utilize sport psychology principles to perform up to their abilities under stress. Also a conservatory-trained violinist with degrees from Juilliard and Oberlin, Dr. Kageyama’s understanding of performance pressure and excellence come from his own experiences on the concert stage from the age of two. Through 23 years of training, complete with television and radio appearances, solo performances with orchestra, and international competitions, he experienced first-hand the discipline, hard work, and perseverance it takes to reach an expert level of performance - as well as the frustration of performing poorly at the worst possible moments. Dr. Kageyama’s work has been featured in media outlets ranging from The Wall Street Journal to Lifehacker, and he has has provided seminars for institutions and organizations such as the New England Conservatory, US Armed Forces School of Music, Perlman Music Program, Starling-Delay Symposium, Music Teachers’ National Association, and the National Association for Teachers of Singing. - See more at: http://www.creativitypost.com/authors/profile/103/nkageyama#sthash.ZG8EJ5hi.dpuf
