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.
