One of the most important qualities a singer or pianist can possess is confidence! The more you perform the more your confidence will grow. This is a key issue for your development if you want to be a performing artist. Being confident is nothing more than believing in yourself; confidence comes from within.
To build confidence as a singer it is important to warm up with vocal and breathing exercises. Proper posture makes you feel confident and daily practice helps perfect your vocals. Also, try singing in front of your family or friends, have a karaoke night. Recording yourself objectively (as if you were listening to someone else) this allows you to hear your current strengths and weakness, and work on them.
What does it mean to play piano with confidence? For many piano students, that feeling of confidence is not an easily obtained. Sitting down to play can create feeling of self-doubt and anxiety. It’s important to practice daily, even if it is for a short time and try recording your practice. Listen to the recording and focus on improving and not putting yourself down; never compare yourself with others. Everyone has strengths and weaknesses, focus on the strengths and work on the weaknesses.
JOKE FOR THE DAY:
Why does the orchestra have bad manners? Because it doesn't know how to conduct itself.
