IIRY Podcast: 33. Dr. Noa Kageyama. “Focus on growth.”
On growth mindset versus fixed mindset and what we can learn from making music.

Check out my 2018 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?”
