Your Voice and LOVE!

| Return|

 

I believe that love is literally the substance that coaxes us out of our shells. We need to feel safe and supported in order to allow ourselves to be vulnerable and sing in front of people. Unfortunately, most people feel they have to be hard on themselves, stress themselves out and beat themselves up if they make a mistake, but I believe the best method for releasing your voice is LOVE.

 

Most of my vocal students are uncomfortable with their voices when they come to me.  They want to develop and get stronger. They feel they have come to a place where they are ready to do something about changing the way their voice sounds.  But I gently help them to understand that they have always had the ability to sing, they just did not think so. And then we prove it!

 

All they ever had to do was accept the voice they already had and work from there.  They are constantly comparing themselves to others and putting themselves down for making mistakes when making mistakes is a huge part of the process of learning and understanding what their voice can do.  They are always in a hurry to change this voice they are discovering when in actual fact, this voice is a direct link to who they really are.

 

Paul Newham said that the voice expresses what is in the soul, so as you develop your voice for singing or speaking, you are developing who you are at the same time: understanding who you really are and why you do the things you do.

 

When you understand more of how wonderful you really are, then you can demonstrate or interpret through singing from your point of view instead of only mimicking or copying.

 

But in order to get to that place, you need to let yourself feel safe and supported and in order to feel that, I believe you need to feel LOVED. 

 

Come and sing and see how different life can be.
