If you have come across this article, then the chances are that you have a music performance coming up and you’re conscious about it. Well, I can understand, and my first advice to you will be calm down, stage fright or anxiety before a performance is normal. Here mentioned below are six tips that will help you with your performance.
1. Record your performance
The first thing that you should do is record yourself. I recently had an open mike that I had to go to, and this helped me a great deal. While looking at myself perform I was my own harshest critic, and that helped me to overcome all the faults that I saw in my performance.
2. Eye contact
Remember that you have to make eye contact when you are on stage. People need to know that you are not scared. When you give off an anxious vibe, it interferes with the effect of your performance. Eye contact shows that you are confident and it gives people space to connect with your song rather than focus on you.
3. Engage with the fans
You should also engage with your fans before your performance so that you feel like you’re performing in front of your friends. When you know the people that you’re performing in front of, you’re not as anxious as you would be in front of total strangers.
4. Explore the horizons of your voice
People often get bored if a song does not have highs and lows. You need to experiment with your voice and learn different ways to make your song more alluring. Try to adapt notes that you’ve heard different singers use and see if you can master them for your performance.
It is good to consult a voice coach before you finalize your song as they can assess your voice and its hidden magic better than laymen.
5. You should be familiar with the tech
If you are performing for the first time, then you need to be familiar with your tech. Sometimes you need to take your with you on a USB, and sometimes they have a karaoke machine that you can use you should confirm these kinds of queries before you agree.
Make sure if you are taking your USB that it doesn’t contain any kind of viruses. You wouldn’t want your music to get corrupted when you attach your hard drive.
6. Practice and ask for honest reviews
One thing you should add to your routine is that you should practice in front of friends and family and be open to constructive criticism. If you’re looking to get yourself a karaoke machine for better performances, then check out Karaoke Bananza.
Practice makes perfect may sound like a cliché, but it is true. If you plan on performing in front of a crowd, you should definitely practice a lot. Nowadays the music industry is like a junkie on drugs looking for its next fix, and if you aren’t able to provide it, then there are other means to get it.
