He suffered from nerves in music exams and played badly as a result. Now he’s passed his Grade 8 and actually ENJOYED the experience
CASE STUDY SUMMARY
- Name: Yemi Okoro
- Location: UK
- Instrument: Piano
- Experience level: Amateur – adult learner
- Main problem: Suffered from nerves when playing in front of others – especially when he took formal exams
- Success: Passed his Grade 8 and enjoyed the experience much more than previous exams
About 2 months after we recorded this chat, Yemi got in touch to say that he’d taken his Grade 8 exam again. He felt he could do better now that he’d spent several more months continuing to train his mind. Here’s what he said:
“I got my result this morning and I achieved a good merit and this was 19 marks more than I got in March.
What was really pleasing was that this was the first time that I’ve left an exam feeling good. My handling of nerves on the day and leading up to the exam was vastly improved. I was full of belief. I had been working on focus and performance preparation over the last 3 months and this really helped. Whilst there were still wobbles during my performances, at no point was there any doubt, just focus on recovering.
I’m sure that Unlock Your Potential has been key in my improvement.
