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


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

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

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

Everyone has a talent. Many choose to ignore it.

Be teachable.

Bigger is better. Don’t hold back!


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

Be patient with yourself and you will learn faster.

Focus on the message and stage fright becomes less important.

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

Stay focused on your goals.

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

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

Practice everyday in front of a full length mirror.

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

Humming is an excellent vocal warm up.

Drink water. Stay hydrated!

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

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

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

No one cares about your mistakes more than you.

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

Stage Fright

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

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

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

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