How I Beat Stage Fright

How to Overcome Stage Fright for Pianists

While most people can play piano in their room, the magic of the stage can be too much to handle.

Ten minutes before my design event, my hands were shaking at the thought of people having woken up on a Saturday morning because of me. I’d printed cue cards (which I have never done, and will likely never do again).

In this video, I share the top tips for performance and beating stage fright, that have worked for me.

If you know someone who might find these tips helpful, please feel free to share it.

1. Power poses. See Amy Cuddy’s research (in a nutshell) and TEDTalk. Also, how to be a superstar piano teacher.

2. 60/20/20 rule. Find your supporters in the crowd.

3. Get up. Dress up. Show up. Noa Kageyama writes a great blog on overcoming stage fright.

I’m working on piano arrangements and would love to share them soon! In the mean time, here’s a peek of my music:
