Dr. Noa Kageyama is a concert violinist who did his studies at Julliard School of Music, but he is also a psychologist and the author of a prominent music blog called “The Bulletproof Musician.” Noa uses both his background in music and in psychology (especially in conversation with sports psychology) to work with musicians to reach their peak performing ability. Noa will be one of the guests for this year’s Guitoberfest, along with Fred Hand and Gohar Vardanyan, so we’re excited to introduce him and his ideas to the CGC community.

In episode 33 of the CGC Podcast, Noa guides us through some really insightful conversation about performance anxiety, beta blockers and bananas, and some very helpful advice and data on practicing. Noa also answers some fantastic questions from CGC members. You are in for a real treat here and I think you’ll learn a lot from this great conversation. Leave us your feedback in the comments below!
