Describe how mental imagery might influence Zane’s ability to perform on his oboe during the performance evaluation.
Mental imagery, or visualization rehearsal, will allow Zane to be more prepared for his evaluation. Before his evaluation, Zane can mentally imagine himself giving his evaluation and “see” what notes he has to play and how he needs to play his oboe. Through mental imagery, Zane can run through his performance while waiting without having to actually play his oboe. If Zane is satisfied with his run through in his mind, he will most likely feel more confident in his evaluation and obtain better results.
