At Brighton Singing Lessons HQ with Chip Jenkins, you will also discover more than just the physical actions of producing a vocal sound. Ideas about the psychology of performance and recording will also be explored. These are some pointers for you to consider in your own singing career:
One thing you will notice about successful singers and people in the music industry is that they exude an air of self-belief that’s easy to admire.
They have their feet firmly planted on the ground as there is a lot of consistency required to be a successful singer, even Beyonce has to rehearse hard! In fact, that is what has got her that good in the first place.
They are also centered – once you start having success as a vocalist or songwriter, you need to keep your wits about you to ensure that you look after your interests – everyone will suddenly want a piece of you!
Their view of the world is that of an optimist – motivation works far more in people taking action than self criticism. Get rid of the inner chatterbox that gives you a running commentary on what went wrong with that note, why your voice cracked or you ran out of breath. It does not do you any good – Focus on what is good!
Next, they will have genuine enthusiasm and passion for their music, singing, songwriting, promotion (be that photography, promotion etc) and of course the business side. Without this type of passion, how are you going to overcome the obstacles that even everyday life throws in your path?
Quick-witted to adapt and change if appropriate – would Madonna have remained a leader in her field if she were still using the same musical trends as when she released “Like a Virgin” and was prancing about in black lace fingerless gloves with crimped hair?
They are usually surrounded by like-minded, and often equally successful, friends and colleagues who radiate a similar positive energy. Look at those surrounding you and evaluate if they are helping themselves in their own life and moving forwards? If they are just sitting around criticizing everyone who has succeeded, perhaps it is time to work out how the time could be better spent?
They realize the importance of a support network – the idea of being a self-made man or woman is a false one as “It Takes Teamwork to make the Dream Work”
Lastly, failure is the furthest thing from anyone’s mind when these people are around.
