4. While seated:

  • Maintain an upright posture with hands on your lap.
  • Lift your hands and place them gently on the keys.
  • Take a deep breath.
  • Begin playing.

5. Between each song:

  • Lift your hands off the keys and rest them on your lap.
  • Calm any nerves, take your time, and prepare for the next piece.
  • When ready, lift your hands and place them on the keys.
  • Inhale and continue playing.

6. After the final song:

  • Lift your hands from the keys.
  • Rest them on your lap for a count of three.
