How to prepare for a music concert
02/09/2017 Concerts Michael Kenney

Preparing for a concert can be a hard thing to do. There are so many things that one will need to do. Various aspects should be considered and checked to ensure that one is ready for the performance.

Here is how to prepare for a music concert

Artistic aspect

ew454657tryetBefore one considers applying for performance in a musical concert, they should have known the kind of music that fits their style. One should then make a point of learning that style of music so that every phrase delivered comes with its conviction. A sure way of ensuring this is catered for is by practicing. One should not get tired of practicing until they will feel they are ready for the performance. However, one should be cautious not to be like the ostrich who danced lame before the main dance. Ensure that you do not harm your voice as you practice hence destroying it on the material day of the concert.

Technical preparations

All the people involved in the presentation of your music should also be prepared. They should be in top command of the musical instruments. The crew should also be in the knowledge of matters about the concert performances. This includes the lighting and sound systems. If your crew does not have experience in such environments, they whole crew can decide to volunteer in other events as backstage professionals so that they get accustomed to this kind of environment.

Mental preparations

Better concert performances are achieved when one is emotionally engaged and mentally cleared. Most people get their clarity during practicing. However, they should go ahead and work on it to ensure that they remain the same during the concert. In case of any difficulties, one can use different scenarios during their practice sessions to ensure that they can stay put during the concert.

Physical preparations

One will need strength before they perform. They will also need to manage their activities before the main event so that they are fresh when they perform. One should find time to rest amidst the vigorous rehearsals. Eating well and getting enough sleep should be the main focus of the day before the concert. For those who intend to stay fresh even during the few days before the main event, they should strike a balance between the practicing, eating and even resting.

If one does not know the venue, they should organize to come early so that they reach the venue in time. One should also know what to wear and the effect it will have on their audience. They should also have all the instruments they need for the concert and ensure that they are at the venue on time for proper setup and even testing.

The organization is necessary even during the performance to ensure that switching from one song to the other is also orderly and flows with the rhythm. All these should be considered.…

My dad is a hot freakin’ mess. He was kicked out of high school because he punched a teacher just before graduation and had to get his GED.

Dad was an over the road truck driver for almost…
