       Some tips for performers

        - Please be tuned up and ready to take the stage when it’s your turn.

         -Stay close the mic …it’s your friend

        - Everyone makes mistakes, blows chords, forgets lyrics sometimes. Don’t worry and don’t apologize.

        - Be positive and encouraging in your comments. It takes guts to stand up and play your heart out!   

        - After you play, the polite thing to do is stick around and listen to others. And you’re polite, right?

        - Keep coming back. You’ll get better and better ,and bring your friends to cheer you on!
