Mindfulness, Confidence, & Performance
A FREE Seminar and Demonstration with Madeline Bruser
Monday, October 28, Teachers College, New York City
6:00 to 7:30 pm
In this free seminar and demonstration, Ms. Bruser will give instruction in Body and Sound Awareness, and in the Fearless Performing Exercise. A musician will play a short excerpt before doing each exercise, and again after the exercise, to show its effect on the music. Participants will have the opportunity to do the Fearless Performing Exercise along with the demonstrating musician. A question-and-answer session will conclude the seminar, which will be followed by tea and snacks.
“The techniques Madeline teaches are magical. I have better tone and a kind of clarity that is beyond anything I’d ever imagined. I didn’t realize that I could still make this kind of transformation and progress.”
Tang-mei Shieh, pianist, graduate of Manhattan School of Music
“Doing the Fearless Performing Exercise before each performance quite honestly transformed my experience of performing. I actually found myself enjoying the moment, and feeling like I could lose my ego to some extent and just ‘give’ the music to the audience. It’s just turned my way of thinking around about what performance is actually about.”
