Being a good singer/musician is not the same as being a good performer. Frankly, I would never go to a Lana Del Rey concert, but her albums are my muse on mellow summer evenings. On the contrary, I am not a huge fan of the lyrics of T-Swift songs, but that girl has a significant potential for stage performances. She can vow her crowd! And then there is Adele! The list could go on and on.
My point, my friend, is that your ability to perform on the stage determines how popular you would likely be among the people. Today, I am going to give you a few tips on how to ensure that you offer your best performance on stage!
I still remember the song that introduced me to this wonderful, young female artist Birdy.
It was a cover of Bon Iver’s ‘Skinny Love.’ I mean, if I were him I would be proud. I suggest that you sing covers. Even if the piece that you are playing or singing is not your own, add your unique voice and style to it. Some might think it is a risqué thing to do, but I believe your unique style would make your performance incredible.
Rehearse In Front Of A Mirror
As odd as it may sound, it is a tool that helps all kinds of performers. You might not want to be scrutinized by someone, but there is no harm in watching yourself in the mirror and figuring out the flaws in your posture or style. You can take it a step further and record yourself. It will help you keep track of your mistakes and improvements. All you need is the perfect musical equipment in order to record a classic song at home, browse here to learn more about it.
Take Care Of Your Body
Your throat is a part of your body, and it plays an instrumental role in the life of a singer (quite literally!). Make sure that you take good care of your throat for at least three days before a live performance. Have tea, and keep yourself hydrated. Avoid dairy, alcohol and cigarettes at all costs! It is also mandatory that you take rest before your big day.
Singers tend to get lost in their soulful music; as appealing as it may sound, I suggest that you keep your attention towards the audience. Remember, you are singing to your audience and not at them! An entertainer has to captivate his audience; you cannot do that by being nonchalant towards them. There is no harm in making eye contact with the audience. Impersonate your musical piece and watch people fall in love with you.
Do Not Forget The Lyrics
This one is probably the most important. A young artist who never really sings before a huge crowd can panic and forget the lyrics, doing a good drill before your performance is a great way to deter this problem. Also, if you remember the lyrics and utter them like it is a reflex, you would be able to focus better on your energy and singing.
I wish you all the best for your performance, rock the stage!
