Singing Is Really Good For You!
As a vocal coach I get to facilitate and then witness the magic of singing.
People take vocal lessons for various reasons. They may want to improve there singing voice by learning new techniques, or they may have always wanted to learn how to sing and finally find the courage to just do it. Some take vocal lessons because they want to become better speakers (annunciating and breathing are just a few techniques that are worked on) and some take lessons because they are tired of being shy.
We all have gone through something in our lives that sometimes leaves us feeling unworthy of being heard. Like when you go to speak up at an office meeting and find your voice not cooperating with you. These are just a few of the issues that can be marvelously eradicated through singing.
Picture yourself in the middle of a crisis, bogged down with heavy-duty paper work and the day seems to be pressing you into a corner. Then out of the blue you start singing “don’t worry about a thing, cause every little thing’s gonna’ be alright”, the chorus from a Bob Marley song “Three Little Birds”.
This seemingly simplistic action, singing, can change your mood, release some tension and help you clear your mind enough so you can go back to dealing with whatever issue is waiting for you.
This is what Confidence Booster students learn how to do while they are singing. They get to develop deeper breathing, relax their bodies while working through exercises that assist them in ear training and voice control. They also get in touch with their emotions, but that is a discussion for one entire blog.
Through private lessons and or play shops like “Sing Your Stress Away” and “Crossing the Line” people have noticed changes in the way they feel and how they respond in their life.
This is not a counseling session or a psychological assessment, this is singing from the heart and learning how to let go.
Singing is really good for YOU!
Keep on singing,
