Welcome to the Eversole Music & Acting Studio blog!
I'm glad you've made it to this page and I'm hoping the tidbits and thoughts I post here will inspire and encourage you to work on your craft with focus, fun, and joy.
Over the past several days I've done much thinking about what it means to "level up" in your performing life and how that may manifest.
For some, it's about just being able to play through a piece or scene in front of others without fear of mistakes. For others, it means moving to the next tier of bookings in your performing career. And for beginners, it may just be taking that leap to start lessons with a teacher.
In order to level up, you have to be able to manage your nerves, you must be willing to commit to studying and practicing your craft frequently, you need to have the willingness to learn new things and make mistakes (even when your perfectionism is telling you to quit because you didn't do it right the first time), and most importantly you have to find a balance between your performing life and just life in general.
Yes, you want to be committed to doing what it takes to get to where you want to go, but you cannot do this at the sacrifice of your health and well-being. Finding the balance is KEY to truly being able to level up and have longevity in your career.
