Performing Your Music for Others

Thanks to Margaret R. for this excellent post about performing for others. I've been playing for a very long time and this article may be the best information I've ever read about this subject.

Here it is:

I have played in front of an audience of one to thousands (downtownMinneapolis Convention Center).

A few things:

  1. Practice, practice, practice joyfully. I find that practicingslowly and meditatively can renew the creative spark of the piece.It also relaxes you when you play so during a performance in frontof an audience your body's muscle memory will be relaxed.
  2. Play in front of an audience as often as possible. Start with asmall group such as your friends.
