Won’t the Audience Get Bored?

I was doing an interview at Singing Success awhile back and I was asked, “Tom, if everyone buys your DVDs and learns your Live Music Methods, won’t all the audiences figure it out and get bored?”

Simple answer – “No!”  I don’t teach what I teach so that everyone looks the same.  In fact, I teach what I teach so that everyone’s uniqueness can come through!

To show how true this is, I came up with an analogy (imagine that!)…

You can be a killer guitar hero, or a fantastic vocalist.  But if you do not make an emotional connection with people, the audience is left bored and unresponsive.

As musicians, we think it’s all about the music.  We forget that the audience perspective of our show is a lot different than our perspective.  And we forget that almost everyone who comes to see us is pretty ignorant about musical things.

But not one of them is ignorant about what makes them feel something!

Whether you’re creating food at a restaurant, directing a movie, or performing onstage – making an emotional connection with your audience is what it’s all about.

And that’s not boring!
