Master Teacher Blog: Stage Fright

One of the most common things that musicians struggle with is stage fright, also known as performance anxiety. It’s a very difficult thing to get up in front of an audience to display your music, which is something so extremely personal and vulnerable. What’s weird about the whole thing is that the only way to overcome performance anxiety is to actually perform. We at Park Cities School of Music in Dallas, TX do our best to provide as many opportunities as possible for our students to get the jitters out.

One thing that can soothe the anxiety of getting up in front of an audience is preparation. When you feel prepared, it’s more likely that you will have a fun, relaxed time on stage. Not knowing notes, words, rhythms, etc. will certainly do nothing but add to your fears. But when you know your music, it adds a great level of confidence to your experience. This is why, at Park Cities School of Music in Dallas, TX, we encourage consistent practice so that our students can comfortably and regularly take advantage of performance opportunities.

Fear of the unknown is also a huge contributor to stage fright. When we don’t know what to expect, or fear the response of our audience, it makes us anxious and less likely to relax enough to do well. The only way to get over this fear is to face it. The more accustomed we become to presenting our talent, the more we are able to calm down. Also, receiving positive reinforcement, praise, and encouragement from our audience boosts our confidence enormously. This is why it’s so important to allow young musicians to as many opportunities as possible to perform. Here at Park Cities School of Music in Dallas, TX, we do this with our open mic events, regular recitals, special productions, camps, and stage presence classes. We strongly encourage all students of every instrument to take full advantage. It is such an important part of their musical development.

COVID-19 UPDATE

UPDATE

A brief update from Park Cities School of Music regarding the continuation of lessons as we work to protect our faculty, students and families from the COVID-19. Our priority has always been, and will continue to be, to provide top quality music education in a safe and secure environment.

While Park Cities School of Music will continue to provide lessons to students in-person at our physical location, please be advised we are taking every opportunity to clean and sanitize our facility, studios and instruments. Understandably, if you feel more comfortable taking your lesson from the comfort of your home, PCSM can provide an online class for you in place of your usual in-person lesson.

Students coming to PCSM should be prepared to arrive a few minutes early in order to wash their hands with soap and water provided in the restrooms prior to their lesson. Faculty have been advised to wash their hands between each student, as well as wipe down any keyboards used between lessons. PCSM underwent a deep cleaning yesterday, as it does weekly; however, we will be increasing the cleaning of the facility during the coming weeks in an effort to keep germs to a minimum.

The PCSM Calendar will continue as planned. Online, at your home, or PCSM studio lessons will resume on March 23. We want to maintain regular schedule as much as possible.
