Either way, it can really throw you off your game, if you don’t know why it’s happening to you, and what to do to overcome it.
I interviewed Jennifer Hamady, Vocal Coach, Consultant, and Counselor to performing artists, on our weekly radio show, and she shared some great tips on how to overcome performance and audition anxiety. Check out the video below, and leave a comment with your thoughts and feedback.
