Check out my podcast interview with performance psychologist, Noa Kageyama, where we learn what he meant at age 2 when he said “oa wike mugas”; what it was like to studying with Mr. Suzuki himself in Japan as a little kid, how inconsistency in his performances lead to his study of “performance psychology” at Juilliard; how performers can believe that performing poorly means we ‘suck’ as people; what he learned from daydreaming about winning the Lotto; the difference between the ‘critic’ versus the ‘coach’ his surprising reasons for starting his blog; why he’d tell his younger self to play more soccer; and how he answers the question “is it too late?” You can subscribe to the podcast here and find it on iTunes and Apple Podcasts.
