In this talk, Charlotte Tomlinson encourages musicians to move on from performance anxiety that is uncomfortable and detrimental, into a place where adrenalin can enhance the performance so that playing in public can become truly enjoyable. Charlotte Tomlinson is a Performance Coach who helps musicians manage performance anxiety, deal with issues such as memory and focus, and much more. Her approach has been developed from her own experience of teaching and performing as a classical pianist, alongside a strong background in personal growth, psychology and bodywork techniques.
As a duo pianist and chamber musician Charlotte has travelled the world. She has been an accompanist for all the London music colleges, for BBC Young Musician of the Year and has broadcast for national and international radio. She has worked as a vocal coach for the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts. Charlotte interviewed 43 top musicians on film about how they manage performance stress and was interviewed for BBC TV Proms Extra (2015), as an expert in performance anxiety. She is currently writing a book for school children about managing performance anxiety in exams.
