    Live Stream: Tuesday, July 9th at 3:00pm ET (check your local time zone)


    Hi guys! We are back with Live Lesson EP068! This month’s topic is: Overcoming Stage Fright!

    In this session, Matt shares tips on becoming a confident performer on stage or in front of the camera.

    This month’s topic should stir up some great questions! So please post all you have below and I hope you join us for the live stream. 🙂



    Q: What happens in a live lesson, how long is it, and when does it occur?

    A: Live lessons are usually 30-45 minutes in length, but can extend until all questions are answered. The first 20 minutes will comprise of the lesson, while the next 10-25 minutes will be a Q&A session for premium members.

    Live lessons take place every second Tuesday of the month at 3:00pm ET (check your local time zone).

    Q: Can I submit questions beforehand?

    A: Absolutely! Basic and premium members are welcome to post questions that are related to the topic in THIS thread.

    Q: Who can watch the live stream, how do I watch it, and how do I chat with Matt and other members?

    A: Premium members will be able to tune in and watch the livestream. Premium members will also be able to chat live with Matt during the broadcast.

    To watch the live stream, simply navigate to the Live Lessons Page. You will see a YouTube video embedded on the page (if you don’t see it, double check that you are logged in).

    If you do not wish to participate in the live chat, you can stay on the page and watch the embedded video. If you do wish to participate in the live chat, you will need to sign up for a YouTube account (100% FREE).

    To participate in the live chat, click on the embedded YouTube video’s title. This will open up a new tab and take you directly to the video on YouTube’s website. The live chat box can be found to the right of the video (on desktop). For mobile and tablet, the live chat is embedded inside the video and can be turned on or off.

    For further clarification, here is a video showing how to do the above (for desktop).

    Q: I can’t make the broadcast. When will live streams be released publicly?

    A: The live lesson will be released for everyone to view the day after the broadcast (second Wednesday of the month). If you cannot make the broadcast, no worries; you’ll still be able to watch the lesson. Don’t forget that you can submit questions for Matt to answer beforehand (see the above FAQ).


    One way to overcome stage fright is to personify your uke and turn it into an Emotional Support Ukulele. That actually kind of has helped me. 😅 One of the googly eyes fell inside of it though and now it’s permanently stuck there… 😂

    But I think the only way to improve stage fright is to go through the scary situations. But also, share your playing with people who are kind and supportive as much as possible, like I have here on Rock Class 101 and with Matt in private lessons – and with certain people I know that I can trust. Sharing that way has helped improve my confidence in playing and speaking so much and I’m forever grateful for that. If you have that kind of fear, it’s always there, but there are ways to help make it better.

    Really looking forward to this lesson, thank you so much! 😊


    Thanks to everyone who tuned in today. The replay will be out next Monday 🙂


    Thank you so much for this lesson on addressing stage fright! It really spoke to my experience, and I appreciated Matt sharing his own stories and feelings of anxiety that inevitably arise for most of us…makes me feel like I’m not alone in my “terror”. 🙂
