Episode 96 Mental Rehearsal For Performers

Mental rehearsal has quite a broad effect on your performance. So how is it done properly?

There are techniques you can use when putting yourself through a mental rehearsal to make it more effective. You didn’t think it was just thinking through your material did you? I should hope not. While that may help you with knowing the material, the actual process of a mental rehearsal should have structure, just as a physical rehearsal would. First, You must do a relaxation exercise to clear your thoughts. Then you begin to run through the material. You will run through the performance at normal speed, half speed and double speed. Each speed gives you a new focus. Slower speed let you focus on technique and movements. Normal speed helps you apply those techniques, and double speed boosts your confidence and will empower you to correct yourself in real time when performing. At the end of the mental rehearsal, there is another meditative exercise to conclude your process and help retain your developments. Use this method 2-3 times between rehearsal and you feel incredible about your progress each time.

Please Note: You can also use this for smaller sequences within the performance as well

Episode 95: The First Time Performing on Stage

The first time you step on stage is one of those unforgettable moments in life.

There are many different ways a performer will experience the first time on stage. It may be in front of a large crowd, it may be in a small intimate setting. You may be sharing your talent or you  may be speaking or singing with emotion. Whatever it is there are 2 things you need to make the most of the experience. First, you should be prepared. You must know your performance backwards, forward, and inside out. Second you need the focus to get through the first 30 seconds. If you can make it through the first 30 seconds of a performance you will make it through to the end. If you focus on those 2 things you will make the most of your first time on stage. The 3rd and final thing you need is enjoyment. You must perform with the intention of enjoying yourself on stage. This is your moment to show what you can do, have fun with it.

Episode 94: When Life Gets in the Way of Your Dream

Life Happens. Excuses Happen. Disappointments happen. What do you do when you find yourself putting off your talent?

You make new commitment to yourself. You decide that you are going to make time for your dream no matter what. And then you stick to it. Yes, without a doubt, life will come back around and knee you in the stomach. You will again find yourself making excuses. It happens to everyone. But then you commit again. And again. And Again. Every single time we fall down we must get up and recommit ourselves to our passion. I challenge all performers to rehearse three times a week, minimum. No. Matter. What. You make time for your talent. You make time for your dream. Meet me in The Being On Stage Group on Facebook and let’s get after this thing!
