When i got my first chance to sing in a school campus I was just get nervous by seeing the crowds, my singing teacher came beside me and said dont watch to the crowds just concentrate on your singing and i do the same. So its my first experience what about you have you ever faced like this kind of situation....

Hi. ashish3090. Welcome to myLot! Your singing teacher has told you the right thing. That was some great advice that she gave to you. This should make you feel confident into singing as you stand in front of the stage. When I was in middle school, I sung in front of the audience. I was in a group with about 15 other students, and I still was nervous. But with me being combined with all of the other students, has made me less nervous. I really believe that I am less nervous when performing in front of others.

I have always been a natural in front of a crowd and always love that sort of attention, which I suppose is part of the reason I chose performing dance for a career. I am not as natural a singer as I am a dancer though. I just now got into singing, and plan to make my singing debut in the not-so-distant future, and of course I am pretty nervous just thinking about it mainly because I have never done it before, and I am not sure how well-received it will be. I know my friends and family will like it because that's just how friends and family are, but predicting how total strangers will respond is another thing. I just don't think my singing will be up to par with what they've heard from other singers. I do hope, however, that I am at least good enough at it do be able to do it semi-regularly. As at ease as I am in front of a crowd doing what I am used to doing (dance being my main thing), I do always get this feeling of apprehensiveness just because I know there are so many things that can go wrong up there. The desire to do well and make an impression can really put a lot of pressure on you mentally. I have found the best thing to do is just relax, breathe, do what you've programmed yourself to do in all the endless rehearsals you've had and forget about the impression you're trying to make. You'll perform much more naturally that way. At least that is my experience.

Yes I've performed many times on stages in school. I absolutely love it, whether it be singing or dancing or speech, I just love it. But now it's been quite sometime since I've stood on stage but if I get a chance, I'd love to do it again . And yeah the first few seconds I get really nervous but later on everything feels fine and great.

It is a normal feeling to be nervous when you have to face a crowd. I really don't like performing in front of a public. I really get so nervous. In fact, I didn't pursue my piano lessons because I need to do a recital. There are times when I was in school that I really need to overcome my nervousness because my grade would depend on my performance. I have no choice but to conquer my fear and when I am done with it, I am just so relieved!

Hi dear, I traveled a long journey from there and all those days are just a piece of memory for me now. The days of school and college were the ever green and ever ending sweet time in everyone life, I think. My studies for the school time was little different because from the very beginning (Std. I to Std X) I continued in the same school with promotions and I moved to college only after the completion of Xth standard. I think if we move to a new or a different school, such frustrations would happen, especially when we are in a early schools. But I think in you case, you are grown up and forget about all such frustrations and as your teacher said, concentrate on studies. All such things will move away within 2-3 days and you will surely get acquainted with new situations and will get good friends after some days once the school is started. Best of luck and have a nice day. Thank-s

i don't sing too well, but i like playing sport and in such event there are lots of audience too, some are my supporter and some are for my opponents, but what the coach always said in a gain everything is empty just me my opponent and the sports we'll be playing don't focus on the surrounding take a deep breath and focus your mind with the game, in your situation don't mind the audience it's just you the music and the microphone, focus on your business and don't mind anything else or else you might end up messing your moment

Yes. I also had a feeling same as yours. Everyone who have a very first experience to be in front of the crowd will feel the same way too. Sooner or later you can over come that experiences.
