Anyone who performs and sung on a crowded venue had experienced everything, times where the crowd is controlled and other times when the crowd is not controlled. Other crowd may be wild because the performer allow them and reach their souls, and some crowd will just pass at the event because they cannot relate or be involved in the one performing. Crowds got a different taste in music; it’s a matter of performing and giving your best to every performance.
Just like you can learn to be a great singer by working with a vocal coach and improving your technique, you can learn to be a great performer. The secret, it is all about the preparation.
- Prepare for Maximum Greatness by observing the Three Day Rule
In order for you to deliver a fantastic performance, you need the vocal box to rest; fortunately there is an easy way to follow it:
If you are a singer, your body is your instrument that is a fact. It needs time and extra care to recover and be ready to sound its absolute best. Three days before your show drinks as many glasses of water as you could, avoid dairy products, and smoking.
- Make a video of all your rehearsals
Be very keen with all your movements and all the things that needs more practice. It is easy for you to look perfect on stage but you would not know that you might be slumping at the shoulders and there are movements that you still need to practice. If you want to get fancy on your performance set up a video camera and perform while it is recording that way all your movements can be recorded and once done you can watch the things you need you improve.
- Make eye contact
By making eye contact with your audience this means you are making a personal connection, this will help you tell the story better and created the lasting relationship with your audience that will keep them coming back for more.
- Practice and plan for body language
The goal in this is for you not to look like a robot in front of your fans and admirers. Did you know that 55% of communication is body language? This is true in your everyday life, so how much more when it is during your performance? You have to plan what to do with your hands and how to hold your posture. You do not want to end up in front of a microphone with your hands on your pocket, it won’t show confidence.
Confidence is something that can be learned, just like becoming a singer or a performer.
