Freeing The Creative Mind

Makram Aboul Hosn


The subject of the psychology of performance has interested me more than anything in the past few years. The reason behind this is that I believe that all the trouble that I've encountered as a musician (fears, creative blocks, procrastination...) are products of my own thoughts and because of bad directions from my teacher(s). I set out to observe my mental activity, conscious and unconscious, collect data from related literature and scientific research to finally attempt to reprogram my thought patterns to work for me, rather than against me. The end product is this "reflective practitioner" research that I've completed for my Master of Music degree entitled "Freeing the Creative Mind". If you would like to read it, I can e-mail you a copy. Go to the 'Contact' page on this website and send me a message request.
