    Carte Blanche mit Dr. Noa Kageyama
    Question and Answer

    Der Musiker und Psychologe Dr. Noa Kageyama von der Julliard School in New York
    kommt an die HMDK Stuttgart

    Nachdem im Rahmen von Carte Blanche im Frühjahr bereits der Sprecher und Schauspieler Christian Brückner zu Gast an der Hochschule war, freuen wir uns, mit Herrn Dr. Noa Kageyama einen Musiker für die Reihe gewonnen zu haben, der sich sehr erfolgreich im Bereich der Psychologie spezialisiert hat.
    Nach seiner Musikerausbildung studierte er Psychologie, befasste sich insbesondere mit Methoden der Musik- und Sportpsychologie und arbeitet heute an der Juilliard School, New York insbesondere mit Musikstudierenden, die bei ihren Auftritten mit Stress, Lampenfieber oder Konzentrationsproblemen zu kämpfen haben.

    Have you ever wondered why you can sound and feel great in the practice room, but walk out on stage a few moments later, feel the adrenaline kick in, and experience a meltdown?
    Or had a piece completely memorized, played it through countless times in rehearsals with no problems, and then suddenly went blank in the middle of a competition?
    My name is Dr. Noa Kageyama, and I’m a sport and performance psychologist on the faculty of The Juilliard School. But 20 years ago, I was a frustrated conservatory student and haunted by questions like the ones above. I knew I had talent. And I knew all about discipline, sacrifice, and what it took to be successful.
    But despite my best efforts, I struggled with inconsistency and was exasperated by how often my playing fell short of what I knew I was capable of.
    I knew none of this was my teachers’ fault; I could not have asked for a better or more complete musical training. Yet, I knew something was missing – I just didn’t know what.
    Then I went to Juilliard, and took a course titled „Performance Enhancement.“ It sounded interesting, but I had never heard of „sport psychology“ and was skeptical that a sport psychologist could teach me anything about being a concert artist.
    To my surprise, what I learned that semester changed not only how I performed, but how I felt about performing. Even my practice habits changed dramatically. Performances were no longer fraught with such uncertainty. I was having some of the best performances of my life, and it felt great.
    But more than anything, I loved the feeling of knowing that I had finally figured it out. For once in my life, I knew exactly what I had to do to perform up to my potential on stage. And as you might imagine, I was hooked. Sport psychology opened up a whole new world of skills to learn, skills that were helping me become a more compelling musician and performer, but which I had never learned. I couldn’t believe that this wasn’t public knowledge. How could more people not know about these principles and techniques? I wanted to learn more, so after finishing my masters at Juilliard, I went to Indiana University to pursue a doctorate in psychology.
