Anxiety before a performance assessment can be hard to manage. Here are some tips that might help.
Performance anxiety is not uncommon… and when you have to prepare for and perform as part of a VCE assessment it’s even harder! I’m sure there are music and drama teachers who assist their students to prepare for and manage the anxiety that comes with needing to perform as part of an assessment.
Kim Dunn, of Positive Young Minds, invited me to have a chat with her about some tips that might help students manage their anxiety. The audience was parents of teens so we were talking about how parents might help, but these strategies would equally apply if you’re looking for tips or yourself.
