Dear ASTA MD/DC Chapter Members,
On Sunday, April 19 we will be holding a WEBINAR online for our annual Mini-Conference. Although we are unable to meet in person, we are glad to announce an alternate way to bring us together. Our presenters, Dr. Karin Hendricks and Dr. Tawnya Smith, are tailoring their presentation to address the stress we may be feeling as we stay at home, attempting to keep ourselves, our loved ones and our communities as safe as possible. They will also present ideas for how we can help our students to manage their stress during these unprecedented times. I look forward to seeing you online!

President, ASTA MD/DC Chapter
STARTEGIES to BOOST PERFORMANCE CONFIDENCE and
SUPPORT STUDENTS in STRESSFUL SITUATIONS
Overly self-conscious thoughts can lead to anxiety and interfere with our musical development and success. In this session we discuss research-based strategies for managing fears and turning negative thought patterns into confidence-boosting affirmations and habits.
We will engage in embodied relaxation activities and focus on strategies for managing stress in difficult times and using music for emotional release and expression.
The WEBINAR will take place on Sunday, April 19, 2020 from 3:00-5:00
Guest Speakers: Karin Hendricks, PhD and Tawnya Smith, PhD
