Don’t Chase Your Tail
Of course this is a very difficult path, and self doubt is at every turn. But keep your patterns of growth in motion. I often ask people “where were you as a singer 6 months ago?” “Where will you be 6 months from now?” Success is a multi-dimensional landscape, and it’s impossible to control all of the variables. But you can control the tangible aspects of certain things that can lead to success, like “are you getting better or not?”
Many singers and musicians in general do not like the idea of practicing.
What I’ve created is a vocal warmup that becomes your practice session. Just by warming up with the proper method (as shown in “The Art of Body Singing), you’re getting your practice on.
All of the elements in voice need to grow up together. When singers get out of balance with all of their focus on one element of voice (i.e. range, break, mix, belt, repertoire, performance), their overall end result suffers from being either “too technical” or “not technically correct enough.” That’s why it’s a good idea to have some variety in your routines that cover the full range of skills needed to sound great and let them all gel and “grow up together.”
