Subj: How do you relax/energize...pre-performance?
Date: Sun, 7 Jan 1996 09:55:30 -0500
I will be helping to run a workshop on the way musicians can do right
before a performance which will help them play up to their potential.
I'd like to know what you do before or during a performance to
relax, energize, focus : stretching, exercise,
meditation, self-talk, eating do's and dont's, medication, social or other
diversions, or special, last-minute practice routines ? Do you do
anything special right before a difficult passage?
If you know of unusual or effective things that other musicians
do, that would be great, too.
