This chapter describes the pressure experienced by musicians when they perform. There are a great number of precisely timed events in music performance that must happen in an extraordinarily quick succession, and there is no possibility for a mishap to be corrected once it has occurred. The first misplaced finger or shortness of breath can negatively influence the rest of the performance. The chapter provides a list of preparatory techniques before performing. The first step in moving from practicing mode to performing mode is by playing through a piece without stopping, and conveying musical meaning in it while performing.

Keywords:   musicians, music performance, preparatory techniques, practicing mode, performing mode, musical meaning
