Throughout my many years of training, I’ve done singing programs and worked with teachers before that DIDN’T do a great job. One didn’t even bother to give me any critique – I spent $200 to blaze through song after song….I can do THAT at a karaoke bar for free! Another program’s information page was totally misleading (and the program was incomplete), and another teacher turned out to be incredibly verbally abusive. It didn’t matter – because I sang around the world and performed for thousands anyway. You know why? Because I DECIDED that I would. The truth is: even 1 small, new idea can have such a big a ripple effect on your singing and your career…..even if executed imperfectly. Of course – as a coach, I make sure I give my singers everything they sign up for AND MORE – but ideas *alone* don’t get you the results. YOUR EXECUTION DOES. DECIDE you’re gonna get a return on the training you invest in. Implement the ideas, take it to out into the world, run with it. Implementation is the only path to breaking in and making a big impact with your voice. Get moving and get your dream! If you
Happy New Year! I hope you had a wonderful holiday. I was in Florida (where I grew up) for the holiday visiting family and doing a whole lot of nothing which was BLISSFULLY perfect. Now I’m back in the swing of things, and it got me thinking about what words of motivation I have for you as you embark on this new year and new decade. And I was reminded of something my meditation wrote which I want to share with you. “trust your awareness. expand your vision. plant your intention and match your actions with it. cultivate discipline, dedication, and love for your artistic path.” I’ve learned that if you cultivate these things, you cannot go wrong. Lean into these things and your singing and artistry will bloom. Embody these things and your career will thrive. Let 2020 be the year you shift your relationship with your singing to bring you less frustration and more joy. If you need a proven strategy and expert guidance to help you, I would be honored to be your guide. Here’s to the start of an amazing year!
