Voice & Performance Tips

If you are talking over someone else, then you are not listening.

Stage Fright

Use stage fright to your advantage. The more scared you are, the bigger you should be.

Listen to yourself. Appreciate the good, fix the bad.

Humming is an excellent vocal warm up.

Don’t stop just because you made a mistake. Keep going!


When you perform, Smile! If you think you’ll look silly then consider what it looks like when when all you do is frown.

Participate in open mics, karaokes, spoken word, poetry jams and improv.

Listening is equally as important as singing or speaking. Be teachable!

Everyone has a talent. Many choose to ignore it.

Mumblers are never taken seriously. Open your mouth and people will listen.

It’s not about you, its about connecting with the audience.

Focus on the message and stage fright becomes less important.

You can only teach yourself so much before you hit a wall.


Bigger is better. Don’t hold back!

If you’re trying to think of what to say next, then you are not listening.

Smiling opens the sides of your mouth and helps with projection.

Relax, slow down, take your time and don’t rush. Less is more!

Stay focused on your goals.

Be teachable.

No one cares about your mistakes more than you.

Practice daily in the shower. The steam helps open up your sinuses.
