You would do well to practice a lot to help you get over the fear of singing in front of an audience. This is something that takes time, and is not automatic. It’s true what they say, practice makes perfect.

When singing in front of an audience, try to establish eye contact with the audience. However, you should not focus only on one particular person in the audience. You don’t want to make any one person feel uncomfortable and thus lose or take away the value of your performance. A good thing to do is to focus on a certain section of the audience for a while before moving on to the next.

As long as you feel prepared, you need not worry excessively about how you’re singing or trying to figure out what people are thinking while you are singing in front of an audience. This will help you gain more confidence and work through and conquer that feeling of nervousness.

If this is new to you, then try to choose songs you that you know really well. This will make you feel more comfortable and more confident about your voice and performing in front of an audience, because you are already familiar with the chosen songs, and you will be less nervous to perform them.

Once you are on the stage, remember to smile and look confident, even if you are feeling terrified and insecure. In many cases, you might have to work hard to hide your nervousness in front of the audience. When you are on the stage, focus only on the song that you are going to sing. If you know the song very well but still feel nervous of performing in front of a crowd, then perhaps you could find and focus on an object slightly above the audience, instead of their faces. For example, some people focus on a clock in the rear of the room, or on the railings of the balcony.

It might be helpful also to choose a song that the audience is familiar with, or knows and can join in with you in singing.

Above all, enjoy yourself while you’re singing. It will help you to calm your nervousness even if it doesn’t go away completely. You will appear confident and you will leave the audience feeling the positive, enthusiastic mood of your performance hours, even days, after the performance is over.

Singing has many types and genres and through it, we find ways to express emotion. Singing in harmony requires a lot of practice and skills, especially if you are singing in duet, or as a duo. Singing in a duet requires some points to be kept in mind. First of all, both the singers must be able to perform entire parts of the song. Don’t just practice your part because you need to comprehend your partner’s melody and words as well. That way you don’t have to feel unsure of the song itself and both of you would be better able to rely on what you hear, musically speaking, while singing in duet. Practicing in such a way would increase your confidence and allow you to perform it perfectly together.

Singing in duet, or in a duo requires acquiring the correct melodies and harmonies. This is because, without this, one singer could detract from the other’s singing. You have to maintain your individual melody and correct notes, whether singing soft in volume, or singing loud on a high note. Working with this in mind would lead to a nice blending of harmonies and make singing in duet sound good. Since there is another person singing with you, don’t let your performance go astray. Remember, you are not singing the whole song by yourself. Losing focus of your song is a big no-no. So, it is vital not only to practice as a duo but also practice the song as if you are singing as a solo. This way you will be able to listen to your part, and also hear and put all of the parts together. This will synchronize everything and drive the song. If you take all of these into consideration prior to singing in duet, or as a duo, you will be able to develop harmonies and also be able to find and hear notes separately and together too. You can successfully sing and perform a duet if you have the ability and enthusiasm to perform together as a team. Because complementing one another’s performance is a must, while performing in a duet, or duo.
