IF you talk at all before playing, make it brief and don't describe
Start strong and confident.
Be immediately aware of your volume, adjusting distance to the mic on a
stand. (or are you playing a bullet?)
It's better to be asked to turn up, than down. Watch for a hand to the ear
as a cue
Periodic eye-contact is good
Smile real big during a pauses in playing. They will see your enjoyment,
and it gives YOU confidence.
Speak and play in a volume that would reach the first row without a mic.
Don't let the amplified room sound make you hold back.
