  • I have a question for Julia.

    I have so much difficulty disconnecting from my self-awareness and focussing totally on the ‘musical’ message I’m about to share with an audience. What I mean is: when I  feel the pressure of people watching me as a person, I tend to play tensed, more rigid and less free than I usually do. I’ve been active on stage as an actor and that was very different: I could easily and totally step into my theatric role, still being myself. Why is that so hard when playing our instrument?

    I know that some guitarist (also intermediate, or even not very good players) don’t have this problem and impress any audience with their flair, even when playing wrong notes or style errors).

      joosje It's very interesting to hear about your experience in theatre and how it differs from the concert stage, Joosje. One thing I've noticed in my own (always amateur) 'career' on the stage is that I'm generally quite comfortable when playing with others, but am prone to be a nervous wreck when performing as a soloist. I guess I just don't enjoy being in the spotlight!

    • David Krupka interesting. And it answers for a part my feeling. Being part of a team makes the difference. I feel the same: playing even in a duo is so much more comfortable than solo. Whereas, a solo presentation on stage (text) felt less stressfull than a solo concert performance….
