Ovations and Encores is the book for all musicians, both instrumentalists and singers, who want to learn and apply the fine art and technique of stage presence. Subtitled, The Musician's Guide to Getting the Best
Response from Your Audience, Ovations and Encores
includes techniques that professional entertainers and
musicians use to get the very best response from their
audiences. “If you want to reach your audience, if you want to give them a rewarding, entertaining experience they will long remember, if you want to move them from tepid applause to a rousing standing ovation and cries for an encore, then there is much here that will
be of value to you.” Ovations and Encores could be called Stage Presence 101 for Musicians. It is full of valuable information to help the reader become an incredible, vibrant, dynamic performer. “Becoming confident on stage is a study which should be as important to you as learning
an instrument, or learning how to sing or write songs.” Ovations and Encores could also be called Success and Survival 101 for Musicians. It contains “vital information that you will need offstage, to make your time on stage more productive, enjoyable, and rewarding.” Information that includes such topics as life on the road, wardrobe, effects and lighting. Ovations and Encores includes hundreds of examples of great stage presence from real performers, including Garth Brooks, Mariah Carey, the Corrs, Janet Jackson, Sarah McLachlin, the Rolling Stones, Smashing Pumpkins and Talking Heads. All genres of music are represented, from Classical to Country to Jazz, Rock and Rap. Over one hundred songs are cited as examples of the right song to use at the right time to get the right effect. Quite simply, there is nothing else like it available. Written by Everett Reed, and based upon his 20 years of experience as a professional touring musician, Ovations and Encores is required reading for any performer who wants to be the very best.From the Author:
From the Introduction ...
Ovations and Encores began as a short article about some of the techniques used by entertainers to get a standing ovation. After beginning work on it, I realized that there was much more material than for just an article.
A search of books available in print, led me to believe that there was a need for a book on stage presence for musicians. There are books that address this issue for actors and public speakers, but not for instrumentalists and singers.
Being a musician on stage is a daunting task. It is not easy, even if talented and well prepared musically, to face an audience.
But facing audiences is what becoming a musician is all about. Becoming confident on stage is a study which should be as important to you as learning an instrument, or learning how to sing or write songs.
Besides learning how to act on stage, there are a lot of things that a musician has to know, to make being on stage less stressful. Ovations and Encores also contains information that you will need offstage, to make your time on stage more productive, enjoyable, and rewarding.
To that end, Ovations and Encores is dedicated to you, the reader. I hope that what you read here will turn you into an incredible, dynamic performer. One who knows how to dazzle an audience and achieve spontaneous and heartfelt ovations and calls for an encore. May you find success in all your musical endeavors.
