The invisible line between performer and audience is a barrier that, for most musicians, is best to break. Making a connection with your listeners and engaging them is important for a few reasons.

Additionally, you’ll increase the chance that the person who hired you will call you back. Some performances require musicians to be nothing more than wallpaper, but even the most subtle attempts to break the audience/performer barrier can have a positive impact. These ten tips should ensure that you and your audience have a good time.
