Just practice in front of a few people like family and friends then start getting more new people and do what you have to do. Just have faith in yourself, and just get on a stage and do what you need to do. Then you'll realize it's not that bad. Once you get used to it you won't have stage fright. Good luck. Hope this helped.
Actually, the BEST way is to get up on a stage in front of people and start talking, or whatever. Realizing that it's not that bad once you start doing what you're doing is probably the best stage fright cure there is
don't listen to people who say pretend they are all in under wears that's impossible well its is possible but not btw i want you tob know just take a deep breath speak in front of people i was once a stage fright person and i got over it in a sneeze if you keep on thinking omg they r going to laugh at me they r going to c something embaeressing NO you should just think in you'r head i'm doing grate keep it up next think you know you will be ready to be a talker OR you can just take moddoling class or take a special class SORRY I FORGOT WHAT IT ITS CALLED and it will help you a loat with your speaking GOOD LUCK :) HOPE YOU GET OVER YOU'R STAGE FRIGHT
Well there are different ways.Being a singer,I have had to do this as well.I think you never completely get over stage fright,like,the nerves will always be there right before you go on,but it WILL get better with experience.I suggest trying to think about yourself being a pro ,go up there with confidence,and make sure you know what you're doing.It will ease the anxiety tremendously if you know you practiced and know what you're doing. :) Another tip,drink something warm before you go on stage,such as chamomile tea,because it's naturally relaxing.
Have a purpose. In high school, I was really shy, especially, in front of groups of people. My best friend wasn't. So I asked him if he would be my vice president if I ran for club president (because he was good at getting people's attention and starting the meetings). After I became president, I had an identity and a purpose for being in front of people and I lost that nervousness. I could handle the stage and really didn't need my friend, even though I was thankful for his support. Realize why you are on stage and focus on that PURPOSE.
I work in hospitality,so i talk to people all the time,but i was asked to use a microphone and froze......so maybe your friend is the same.....its different when face to face.....I find that if I know I have to talk ,I use my family...hey thats what they are for....good luck
Try not to make eye contact. Drink plenty of water. Wear comfortable clothes. Practice your breathing. And above all, learn improve! You never know when someone else could forget a line. Make sure you have good posture. Go break a leg!! ;)
best way? stay off the stage. If that isn't an option, an old pro trick is to wear a loose rubber band around your wrist and lightly snap it when you feel anxiety. It redirects sensation long enough to regroup.
If you are starting to play get a electric guitar and small practice amp. With headphones input. Electric guitars are easier to play' use .008 Ernie ball strings and later get acoustic if you want. Get a tuner, chord book and use guitar scales to strengthen your fingers.
the way i got over stage fright was i just got up on stage and had fun at first it can be a little scary and be a little nerve wrecking but then after bout 50 seconds it will be fun and when its over you will REALLY want to do it again :D

I've heard that standing with your back to the audience at first, then start to sing/dance or whatever before turning around helps to prevent the stage-fright "freeze-up". Eventually it gets better, particularly if your BFF realises that mistakes are usually not noticed if the performer ignores them and continues confidently without pause.
I had really bad stage fright. I played the violin and had to do recitals and things. I didnt concentrate on the audience, I concentrated on the violin instead, and then i found myself getting used to audiences.
Think of it as a job.That way you'll be thinking of the best way to do your job,and forget that people came there to see you entertain them,cause after all,it IS a job,and isn't it always worth doing a job as best that you can?
A great method is to imagine the worst possible situation prior to speaking, to the point of making yourself sweat if possible. For example, think about getting up there and having everyone turn against you, forgetting your lines and so on. Then when the time comes, you will be surprised how easy it becomes. In addition you must practice, practice and practice, preferably in the same room that you will give your presentation.
I too had the same problem..And my teacher told me to practice talking or singing while looking at the mirror and avoid eye contact with anyone when u r on the stage...I have killed half of my stage fright by this...Hope it works for u too...
Put your self in that type of situation more often. You will adapt and become more comfortable, day by day, the more you are exposed to it. You can join speech team, debate team, choir or band, school plays or get a job answering phones, reception, something dealing with customer service would help.
For people with stage fright, this is gonna sound really weird by the way, but do whatever it is you have stage fright doing (singing, dancing, public speaking, etc.) in front of lots of people you don't know. A lot of people say to only do it in front of a few people you know, but to me that's worse. If it's lot of people, then it's easier for you to just look at them as kind of mass and not as specific people, and if you don't know them, you'll never see them again. It will be harder the first time, but the more often they do it, the easier it gets. Hope this helps!
Hmmm.. Welll, you can do your talent in front of a few family members, or really close friends. Some times just doing the performance to yourself helps... If you don't like someone, and they really get on your nerves, try to do it around them, to prove that you can do something they cant.. Lol.. Just some suggestions. :)
Also, in addition to many great suggestions here, remember that they are just people. No one is going to remember you were ever in front of them a couple days from now. Most people wont even be paying attention. It will all be over quicker than you think. Don't stress yourself out :)
