Performance Coaching

Performance is a skill that can be learned, and improved with practice.

Whether you're preparing for a concert or a festival, an exam or an audition, you need to be able to do more than merely sing or play the pieces you've been learning.

I can help you to

  • Develop your presentation skills onstage

  • Communicate with your audience

  • Explore your music more deeply to enable you to bring out its nuances and messages

  • Learn strategies for coping with performance nerves

  • Discover out how to cope with an introduction, applause and encores

I can also offer advice on programme building and writing programme notes.

This service is generally aimed at more experienced musicians, but can be beneficial for learners too. It is not a replacement for lessons with your own teacher, but supplements their teaching by offering an objective musical viewpoint.

This service may be used either as individual sessions, or in a workshop of up to 6 participants. Please contact me for details.
