This week's episode is all about performance psychology in music. Psychologist and musician Alvaro Chang is a PhD student in Aalto University and has a keen interest in helping musicians perform better mentally. Alvaro talks about his own music career and how that sparked an interest in helping others in the field.
In the episode, we discuss performance anxiety, fear of failure and other common feelings in performing arts and sports. Alvaro gives his take on the most important mental skills that musicians should practice. We also discuss future research developments in the field and what non-musicians can learn from musicians. Welcome aboard!
