By far the best book I’ve read on stage fright and performance anxiety

By far the best book I’ve read on stage fright and performance anxiety. I took a college class on performance anxiety and this was our textbook. I use the concepts constantly both in my own performing and in teaching. It’s worth the money. In fact, I bought two books so I could lend one out and still have one to refer to.

If you are a musician, or any other performing artist, this is a must read – extremely helpful. Greene gives step-by-step instructions on how to identify and support the exact skills YOU need in order to perform at your best. You can use his website to take the performance inventory, which is even more helpful. Highly recommended!

Make sure the lions are facing out and not at you.

great book by the famous Don Greene. Teaches you how to avoid stage fright, to accept it and embrace it. Teaches techniques to get over fears and the pressures of auditions. Great book.

Great book for the aspiring musician! I use this when teaching my college classes in performance pedagogy. My students find it useful in analyzing where they need mental work on their performing approaches. The supplemental resources on the accompanying website are also helpful.

This book empnasizes on how to manage your fear, stress, emotion and all situations that will not let you perform adequately. Mr.Greene gives some good examples on how to use your right side of the brain, the place where everybody would love to be. Also there is a series of questions that will let you know at what level of performace you are at that moment, and according to the score, he tells you how to improve on it. So all you people out there looking for a book on self control in front of an audience, this is it!

Great Book

I bought this for a music class and was inspired by the personal stories found in this book. The dialogue style made it easy to read and easy to explore my own performance questions. Definitely worth reading for any performer, or even for the average person who has to do speeches or presentations at work.
