Freeing the Creative Mind - An exploration of thought patterns and their effect on musical performance (last edited: 2016)

About this exposition

The subject of the Psychology of performance has interested me more than anything in the past few years. The reason behind this is that I believe that all trouble that I encountered as a musician (fears, creative blocks, procrastination...) are products of my mental activity. I set out to observe my own mental activity, conscious and unconscious and to collect data from related literature and scientific research to utlimately attempt to reprogram my thought patterns to work for me, rather than against me. The end product is this "reflective practitioner" research that I've completed for my Master of Music degree entitled "Freeing the Creative Mind".
