The article deals with the problem of future vocal teachers training in performance activity. The author has focused on the psychological readiness for public performance, which is subjectively perceived as a stressful situation requiring psychological, emotional strain, maximum concentration of attention and volitional effort. A significant role of the psychological state for the singer caused by his/her reflection on the phonation-singing aspects; the degree of emotional brightness, artistic perfection in the creation of musical images has been specified. The author has analysed the works of musical psychologists and representatives of theatrical and musical arts in relation to the factors of the performers' unsatisfactory psychological state. Some features of productive and creative as well as excessive unproductive unrest alongside with its causes have been described. Three groups of determinants of the future professional's personal psychological state have been considered: functional; motivational-characterological and operational. A special attention was paid to the types of the future vocal coaches' performance activity such as performances in the form of academic reporting, contests, concerts and other educational events, pedagogical-illustrative methods as well as students' entertainment. The participation in these activities is significantly different in the extent of responsibility for the performance quality and its possible consequences. It has been pointed out how significant it is to choose the repertoire for the performance in accordance with vocalist's real abilities, to hold auto trainings, to create «situations of success», role play and vocal-improvisation games in order to improve students' performing-psychological state.
