Nervous About Your Recital? Sports Psychology Applied to Music Performance


The UCLA Percussion Studio is thrilled to present sports psychologist, Dr. Nicole Detling. Co-author of Don’t Leave Your Mind Behind, Dr. Detling has worked with several Olympic medalists and world champions as well as professional athletes from the NBA, the NFL, and MLB. She is currently Director of Mental Performance for USA Nordic, which includes cross-country skiing and jumping for both men and women. Dr. Detling will discuss enhancing one’s musical performances through mental skills training.

This event is made possible by the David and Irmgard Dobrow Fund. Classical music was a passion of the Dobrows, who established a generous endowment at The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music to make programs like this possible. We are proud to celebrate this program as part of the 2020 - 21 Dobrow Series.
