Fear. What is it good for? Absolutely NOTHING! Yet it often runs our lives, sometimes hidden, yet other times, crippling. We were instilled with fear to protect us from predatory animals and dangerous situations. But most of us don’t encounter these conditions much?if at all—across our lives. And for us musicians, fear can be crippling. This session will explore the various conditions across our musical lives that push the fear button in us, how that affects our musicianship, and what we can do to change our gut reaction(s) to this debilitating emotion.
