Walk It Off!

Mike Lawson • January 2021Playing Tips • January 8, 2021

“When in the final stages of preparation for any form of concert or performance, be sure to allow your students the opportunity to execute a ‘walk-through’ of the event.

In other words, make sure all students understand how and when they will enter and exit the performance area and that ‘off-stage’ responsibilities have been fulfilled. This can be especially helpful when two or more ensembles (such as band and chorus) are performing in the same program and the movement of large quantities of people and equipment is necessary. When students are relaxed and not worried about the logistical considerations of a concert, the performance itself is almost always of a higher quality.”
