Career Advice For Singers During COVID-19

Some career advice for singers during Covid-19…… I’ve been thinking about time lately. (Covid-19 is definitely making me introspective these days!) Being stuck at home without the usual daily routine – I’m experiencing time so much differently than usual. And I’m so present to the fact that none of us are promised a tomorrow. That could be seen as very morbid, or it could be really motivating depending on your mindset. And I know that a lot of you reading this may not yet be where you want to be in your life, in your singing or in your career yet. Then the thought came to me…..what if there were a pill that could magically get you to that next level in your career right this moment, would you take it? Of course you would! Who wouldn’t want to skip all the periods of self-doubt and angst we go through on this artistic journey? But then the thought came to me……….what if it doesn’t have to be such a struggle? The more time I spend working with mind/body connections in singers, the more I am convinced that the “magical pill” to unlocking the consistency and growth we all want, is in understanding how to use Present Moment

SINGERS IN THE TIME OF COVID-19: How To Stay Sane While Everything Is Going A Little Nuts

Here’s a little hope and help for performers during Covid-19. The pandemic is obviously top of mind for everyone right now, and it’s affecting each of us in different ways. Today I wanted to bring you some of the training I do with the singers in my Intensive Program because the same ideas can be really helpful to center yourself amid Coronavirus and everything associated with it. There are some great tools and reframes in here to help you find some sanity and grace amid all that we are experiencing right now. You can access it by clicking below to watch. SINGERS IN THE TIME OF COVID-19: How to stay sane while everything is going a little nuts. I want to support you in the ways that I can to give you some hope right now and this video training is just one small gesture. The performing community is dealing with a lot of fear and uncertainty right now given the effects of COVID-19 on our industry.   The ideas in this video are aimed at guiding you to create a new emotional home for yourself around the challenges we are all facing.   In doing so, I hope you will

Truth Bomb

I’m gonna be brutally honest for a second. Right now, there are thousands of singers trying to make it in this business. They’re twisting themselves into pretzels to be, sound and look like what they think the industry wants. They’re obsessively focused on mastering technique. They’re going on TV reality shows like The Voice, Idol  and AGT just to get noticed. They’re even paying  to perform instead of getting paid to perform (pay-to-play gigs and YAPs). And despite all of that, most of them aren’t even close to getting paid to sing regularly, much less touring around the world to widespread acclaim. If you’ve been following me for a while, then you know that the strategies I mentioned above – people pleasing the industry, technique tunnel vision, reality shows and “pay-to play” gigs  – are absolutely worthless, in my opinion. If you want a world class singing career, you’ll never get there in a million years if you do those things. There’s a much shorter path. But is that the REAL reason talented, professional singers are struggling? No. The real reason is that most of these singers lack vulnerability. VULNERABILITY. When they perform, they present a façade of who they think they need to

Change Your Singing With One Question

Have you seen yourself and other singers asking: “But what if it doesn’t work out?” “What if I’m never able to make a living as a singer?” “What if I’m rejected by the industry?” “What if I’m never able to break in?” “What if try it and fail?” “What if I can’t do it after all the training and effort?” This one question stunts most singers’ growth severely. It prevents you from taking a chance, from doing something differently, from having a shot at success. And in the meantime, most singers asking this question are wasting the MOST important non-renewable resource in their life: TIME. While this question continues to run on the treadmill in their heads – getting nowhere fast, preventing them from success – hours turn into days, weeks, months and years – AND NOTHING CHANGES. 3 years in – they’re still putting themselves out there and coming up short. 5 years in – they’re wondering if it’s time to let their artistic dream go and commit to a “real” job. 10 years in – they’re feeling bitter that all this hard work went into their singing and didn’t count for anything. So, I want to flip this question for

Wisdom for 2020

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!

Three Blindspots Preventing Growth In You Singing and Your Career

Are you doing everything you can for your singing? I bet you’re not. And I say that with zero judgement whatsoever cause I’ve been where you are. If it feels like you’re close, like you’re one step from getting the sound you want whenever you want, you’re one performance away from feeling like you “own” it, like you’re one step away from that big break…. Listen up. Your singing is a reflection of you. There’s something you’re doing that’s holding you back. It happens to everyone. But the real problem is, it can cost you years of your life and waste thousands of dollars if you don’t figure it out. If you want to know which ‘blind spots’ are holding you back, so you can get past them once and for all and make a big impact with your voice… Don’t miss this training I did earlier this week: “Three Blindspots Preventing Growth in Your Singing”.   Watch HERE 👇

Why Singers Feel Burnt Out

Ever wonder why singers feel burnt out? Let me know if any of this sounds familiar: “Start posting covers on YouTube”, they said… the fans will come rushing in. “Play out, book as many gigs as you can”, they said. Better yet, do FREE gigs for exposure. No, wait….PAY to play! If you’re an opera singer or musical theater singer: “Change your repertoire” or  “Loose 10lbs” they said, ” Just move to NYC!” Give away your best stuff. Free downloads for an email address then cross your fingers those people come to a show. Post on social media 12 times per day.And I love this one… “Try to be authentic”. (I mean seriously . . .if you have to try, then is it really authentic?) All that and you’re no closer to being at the level you want in your career. All that to barely earn anything back. All that time, money and energy spent pursuing this passion and still coming up short. Ugh. If you’re like most singers, you think “I got into this so I could connect to people, move them and create some meaning in this world with my voice on a large scale….not to spend my

This Tool Is Like Rocket Fuel For Your Technique And Your Career

If you are a singer who is currently feeling stuck and unhappy with where your singing and your career is… And you’re ready to bust through the blocks, build a foundation and sing in a way that yields much bigger results… And not just any results, but the kind that you’re actually excited about… Then you won’t want to miss what I have to share with you today. Since 1999, I’ve sang with major opera companies around the country, made two pop records, sang opera on movie soundtracks, sang pop in national commercials for major brands and had my voice and my songs licensed by tv shows on every major network…. my voice is even in a singing Barbie doll! One could say that I’ve got that whole “singing” thing down. But what looks like a whole lot of success on the outside, was really just my own limiting beliefs run riot on the inside. See, what you don’t know is: I ran from genre to genre, from one city to another (NY to LA), from one goal to another, achieving a modest amount of success in one place before I’d reach a wall that I couldn’t figure out how to get past

A Tool For Stability In Breath Support

When it comes to vocal technique, I think the thing singers struggle with the most is (drumroll please). . . . breath support! Would you agree?? That’s why regardless of if you’re a pro who’s been at this for a while or you’re a new singer just starting out, you can never have too many tools in your arsenal for good breath support.  And of all the things you can do to improve your breath support, there’s one global idea you need to know to make all the other tools work. Watch this video to find out what it is and learn how to implement it!

What Perfectionism, Joy and Detachment Have To Do With Singing

I went to an elementary school talent show recently, and it was about as chaotic and hysterical as you would imagine. But one thing struck me as each kid got up to do their thing – how much JOY they had while performing. It didn’t matter how good or bad of a dancer/singer/magician/violinist they actually were. Those kids were just SO happy to be up there performing their little hearts out, sharing their excitement and energy with us. It got me thinking how far we stray from that as we get older. Remember how it felt to sing when you were younger? I used to dance around my bedroom in my jammies singing to Whitney Houston and George Michael (I’m a child of the 80’s, what can I say!). Remember how it felt before singing became this thing you had to conquer and perfect? The thing is, perfectionism leads us to over control. The more we try to control our sound, the less we trust our technique and the worse our performances become. Perfectionism is the thief of JOY. Yet so many of us are such control freaks and perfectionists around our singing! I should know because once upon a
