Whats a good way to relax and get in the right mind set before you sing in front of people?
I'm an off and on signer for a band, and have recently been asked to step up to the plate again as the lead singer. I get anxious pretty easily. I start thinking about what they want and then my throat closes up and then I'll sound like I havent had any singing training at all. I'm friends with all of them, but I still feel like people are going to try and pull on my like putty to get what they want. What should I do?
Give yourself in to the power of music. Music is the most beaufitul and soul nurturing thing on this earth, just let it take control of you. I perform classical piano and I get nervous as well. However, I let God take over. I tell everyone: "God is not only your pilot, he's your pilot, co-pilot and everything else in between.
