music performance

It's time to improve.

Learn better ways to practice and perform classical music.  

The Performing section focuses on different aspects of mental preparation for a performance as a soloist, a chamber musician, or an orchestral player. How can you experience being in the zone or being in the moment during a performance in front of an audience. Performing classical music is very engaging and challenging. It is an amazing feeling when you are able to play close to your abilities. That is something few people get to experience. 

Once you graduate from college and start your own independent life as a professional classical musician, it is easy to lose your ability to perform. Playing solo and chamber music concerts has multiple benefits in maintaining your skills as a professional classical musician at the highest level. Performances will push you to practice on regular basis and improve your own skills. You will discover better ways to improve your technical and mental preparation. It will also help you to be a much better teacher. 

In the Performing section you will find a lot of useful information from experienced classical musicians who actively perform as soloists, chamber musicians, and orchestral players.
