When you are listening to recordings in your live performances,
do you have an experience like you were like being “Uh-oh!”
Was blowing with such a sound ー, was blowing on this pitch of ー,
improv was so out of tune ー, and so on.
I guess everyone have been shocked once or twice or more with being quite different as their own performance they had expected.
I recommend recording and listening to your performance on the spot soon you recorded from usual practicing time as well.
you record, such a thing happens.
You can immediately check the nuance of your performance like
” I tried to play with being careful of this but I wonder how was it??”,
and you can notice “Oops, I haven’t known my bad habit of playing…Not cool.”,
just like you thought “Uh-oh” when listened to recording of your live performances.
And you think “Uh-oh” by youself , and when noticed the reason why thought so, ….
This is a wonder!!
Practice to fix about noticed things in next only 5 minutes,
and blowing up again, try recording.
Surprisingly, could cure bad habits with only 5 minute.
I’m sure you will like it!!
In addition, by making a recording from the usual practice,
you can grasp in real time how your performance is listened to audience.
You can avoid an unnecessary panic or tension.
