About the event

Emotional intelligence (EI) is a core element in human cognition, behaviour and social interaction. EI refers to the identification, expression, understanding and regulation of personal or others’ emotions. It holds significant potential to impact human performance, well-being, relationships and career. Recently evolving research on music performers has found that EI correlates to higher expertise, motivation and self-esteem, and lower levels of music performance anxiety. It also predicts the experience of flow and higher performance. All these components and more are integral in how musicians come to perform, interact and build careers. In the seminar, empirical research findings will be introduced and discussed in more detail (though avoiding scientific jargon as much as possible), by steering the main attention towards a real-life practical application for professional musicians.
