Hi, and welcome to VirtualSheetMusic.com and LivingPianos.com. I'm your host, Robert Estrin, with the second of a five part series of how to improve your stage presence. Last week we had number five, which was take your time, which was of course important for your audience as well as yourself. Today is something a little bit different, and it's to make eye contact.

Just think if I was not looking at you right now. You don't feel as connected to what I'm saying somehow, do you, as if when I'm looking right at you? Boy, when you're in front of a whole audience, if you try to cover as many of the people in the audience as possible, it's really enriching. Did you ever have the experience when you're at a concert and the performer seems to be looking just at you? It kind of makes butterflies in your stomach sometimes because you feel a real connection and it's energy. Remember to make eye contact with the audience any opportunity you get, before, after the performance or even during if you're a singer or other instrumentalist.

When you can look at them, it really makes a difference.

Thank so much for joining me, Robert Estrin here at VirtualSheetMusic.com and LivingPianos.com.
