Top Ten Rules for Performers

Spotted on bulletin board at Moody Music Bldg.,
University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa, AL


1. Be on time and prepared.
2. Create the need for music.
3. Know what you're saying.
4. It's not an aria, it's a duet.
5. Play the moment.
6. Act before you think.
7. Silence and stillness are golden.
8. If it's obvious, why bother?
9. Screw it up from time to time.
10. The Countess does not wear Crocs (wear appropriate performance attire.)

Isn't that awesome?! So many of these stand out and demand more thought and  consideration... and you know, I think it applies to far more than musical performance.
