Joe's Work Log
Anyone else have things that they do in a performance without thinking?
Usually if I can't feel the tempo I'll start bobbing my head to get a feel for it, it makes for some hilarious videos when you see one kid is doing something with his head.
When i got off tempo or out of step, i can't help but look at the people besides me and trying to get back in sync with them. Very bad habit since the judges are right at my face.

When I was in band, concert and marching band, whenever I would make a mistake I would always make faces that were really noticeable that I messed up. Band director finally caught me tape doing it and I haven't done it since.
While playing piano, if the piece is bombastic, I tend to bob my head. I did it a lot with John Adam's Lollapalooza (it was really difficult not to, the piano part was difficult rhythmically).
I constanltly bob my head too. It started because the directors wanted the pit to move with the music and perform more. Three years of this later and I do it for everything. Marching band, concert band, listening to music on the radio, listening to my ipod, you name it.
After the last note, my director know if i did good or bad because of my facial expression. Its either a big smile or an intence frown.
At the end of the big hits of our marching show last year when we were at a stand still, I would almost always rock my head to the beat like crazy. Yes, it may have been bad, but I was so into it I didn't really care.
Every time I perform, the awesomeness usually makes an audience member faint. And that's when I know what it's like to be Joe Lesko
During jazz sets, I really get into the groove and start moving with the musics. The judges normally feed off of it and always compliment me in some sort.
During field shows I would kinda mark time with a rhythm, it almost appears as though I'm dancing. My director definitely broke me of the habit freshmen year though haha.
I tend to frown when I make a mistake, And when I get in to a performance I make the least photogenic faces ever.
I have this habit of being awesome when I perform. :P
I grin any and every time I'm a part of a bassline that lands a feature squarely.
I raise my eyebrows a lot, and make faces all the time. I look really funny when playing.
