If you’re trying to think of what to say next, then you are not listening.

Bigger is better. Don’t hold back!


You can only teach yourself so much before you hit a wall.

Practice daily in the shower. The steam helps open up your sinuses.

Smiling opens the sides of your mouth and helps with projection.

Focus on the message and stage fright becomes less important.

Stay focused on your goals.

Don’t stop just because you made a mistake. Keep going!

Be patient with yourself and you will learn faster.

When you perform, Smile! If you think you’ll look silly then consider what it looks like when when all you do is frown.


If you are talking over someone else, then you are not listening.

Mumblers are never taken seriously. Open your mouth and people will listen.

Everyone has a talent. Many choose to ignore it.

It’s not about you, its about connecting with the audience.

Relax, slow down, take your time and don’t rush. Less is more!

Use stage fright to your advantage. The more scared you are, the bigger you should be.

Stage Fright

To loosen up, dance while you practice your song/speech.

Have a cold? Drink warm liquids and rest before you perform.

Listen to yourself. Appreciate the good, fix the bad.

No one cares about your mistakes more than you.

Practice everyday in front of a full length mirror.

Exercise/energize hours before you perform. Run, swim, yoga etc.

Humming is an excellent vocal warm up.

Be teachable.

Listening is equally as important as singing or speaking. Be teachable!

Participate in open mics, karaokes, spoken word, poetry jams and improv.

Drink water. Stay hydrated!
