What should I do if I mess up on stage?

Have you ever been on stage and forgot the words? Maybe your voice cracked? Maybe you just sang the wrong words?

Well, good news: most of the time, no one will notice. The key is to go on as if nothing happened. Forgot the words? Make up new ones. Voice cracked? So what, keep singing. The key is to make it clear that you still in control.

On the other hand, there is a way to minimize the stress of messing up before your performance. Music lessons address this with recitals which can be forgiving. In addition, a teacher can assess your performance and give you tips to get through weak spots with better practice routines and psychological hacks to talk yourself through those moments. Reach out to us and book a music lesson if you have an upcoming performance and want to better prepare yourself!
