Overcoming Performance Anxiety on the Stage of Life

Join pianist, teacher, composer, and author Seymour Bernstein as he discusses the
genesis of the documentary Seymour: An Introduction and his book Play Life More Beautifully, and shares nuggets of wisdom he’s gathered through an extraordinary life. Seymour reflects on nervousness and its role in our eventual success, and how practice is the only way to hone our natural talents. By tapping into our individual “spiritual reservoir,” we are able to find the success most meaningful to our inner selves. Ever the teacher, Seymour offers his philosophy of playing life with courage to guide us in finding joy in the moment, enabling the feeling of a life fully lived in the future.
