Dealing With Pre – Performance Nerves
Before going on stage, jump up and down to get pumped up! visualizing the performance going EXACTLY the way you want it to go, imagining the whole song going perfectly, and the audience responding with a thunderous applause. This may seem silly, but when you feed that nervous energy with positive thoughts like that, you generate excitement.
When you feed that nervous energy with thoughts of fear and doubt, then performing is going to be about as fun as getting a cavity filled at the dentist.
