No one cares about your mistakes more than you.
Singing is storytelling. Singers are storytellers.
To become a better singer, immerse yourself in music.
If you are talking over someone else, then you are not listening.
Sing every day.
It’s better to hit a wrong note than to make excuses.
Smiling opens the sides of your mouth and helps with projection.
You can only teach yourself so much before you hit a wall.
If you’re trying to think of what to say next, then you are not listening.
To loosen up, dance while you practice your song/speech.
Bigger is better. Don’t hold back!
Drink water. Stay hydrated!
Everyone has a talent. Many choose to ignore it.
Participate in open mics, karaokes, spoken word, poetry jams and improv.
Listening is equally as important as singing or speaking. Be teachable!
To avoid vocal fatigue, warm up hours before your performance.
Relax, slow down, take your time and don’t rush. Less is more!
You are never too old to learn to sing.
Don’t stop just because you made a mistake. Keep going!
Be patient with yourself and you will learn faster.
Practice everyday in front of a full length mirror.
Have a cold? Drink warm liquids and rest before you perform.
When you perform, Smile! If you think you’ll look silly then consider what it looks like when when all you do is frown.
Practice daily in the shower. The steam helps open up your sinuses.
Mumblers are never taken seriously. Open your mouth and people will listen.
Stay focused on your goals.
It’s not about you, its about connecting with the audience.
Listen to yourself. Appreciate the good, fix the bad.
Focus on the message and stage fright becomes less important.
Exercise/energize hours before you perform. Run, swim, yoga etc.
Humming is an excellent vocal warm up.
Use stage fright to your advantage. The more scared you are, the bigger you should be.
