In this blog, I will be looking at techniques, exercises and activities we can use to make us even more confident as performers. Having worked as a musical performer for 20 years, and performed alongside students who have been less than confident at the beginning, I have learned and shared many ways to improve confidence to the point where performing becomes an exciting part of my everyday life. I started out as an incredibly nervous performer, often so nervous that the circulation did not flow properly to my hands and as a pianist, that was tough. I used to have panic attacks at the thought of being on stage and over the years, through a process of discovery and understanding, I have eradicated all damaging nerves from my performing and am able to perform from a state of excited inspiration. I will be sharing with you a number of techniques and using my own research and findings from fellow musicians.
