    What are some remedies for excess spit during performance?

    Do you have any pre-performance rituals?

    How should I warm up before a performance - Flute warmups, mind and body work?

    How do I stop overthinking or hyper-fixating on perfection?

    How do you keep up momentum when you’re close to a performance but exhausted?

    In what ways can you practice to feel prepared “enough” for performances?
