Here you can listen to my reading of the book "Stage fright - Its causes and cures with special reference to violin playing" by Kato Havas but I also recommend you to actually read it.
Take one section or one chapter at a time, read it and apply it. Refer to it often as part of your practice.
Kato Havas is a violin and viola teacher who developed a way to teach and play , the Havas New Approach, to prevent and eliminate aches and pains, physical injuries (tendonitis, tenosynovitis, bursitis etc.) and nerves, stage fright, related to string playing. Read about the Havas New Approach here.
By eliminating physical tension it is possible to eliminate emotional tension, stage fright.

Did you eliminate pain or tendonitis that prevented you from playing? Did you overcome stage fright? Do you find playing easier, more enjoyable? If you are a teacher, what's the best improvement you had with your students who learn to play with the new approach? I'd like to hear it, tell everybody!
