Having a few good songs to sing at any time is a great confidence booster for a vocalist. You know that you can stand & sing a song that will please both you, the artist, and your audience whenever you have the opportunity. And this is one the the 12 things that I think a singer needs most!
You know that you can stand & sing a song that will please both you, the artist, and your audience whenever you have the opportunity.
And this is one the the 12 things that I think a singer needs most!
Here is the list of all twelve:
ability to feel deeply along with the
desire to express those feelings.
Self Esteem and
Confidence - (& a few more
Confidence Tips.) 8. Especially for those who want to have a career- you need to develop some self promotion wisdom. That is, over time you must find the right ways to
Market Your Unique Self! And here are
4 ways to prepare for that.
12. An ability to let go; to release (dis)stress. Find outlets that renew your mind and body. (Exercise is a great one!). Meditation (of your unique choosing, of course) can also be very helpful. It is enormously important for artists to be able to draw back, to step away from their usual life rhythms and gain new perspective. Learn to let go of the feeling of struggle that can come with any artistic venture.
Of the 12 qualities I have listed above, this one comes near the top of the list in terms of importance. Singers must find ways to renew themselves.
13. And for good measure, I have made this a "Baker's Dozen! or 13 rather than 12 elements.
The thirteenth "thing" is - make sure that you have a few good songs to sing that you can easily do when someone asks you to perform.
Have at least one song that you can sing without accompaniment, and 2 or 3 others for which you have a nice karaoke arrangement. Always be able to sing in public, (when you are technically able to do it). This will help boost your confidence enormously. Remember - choose
SIMPLE songs that are EASY for YOU to sing. (PSST! SINGERS, SIGN UP FOR MY FREE NEWSLETTER -

I hope you find a few good songs to sing that will boost your confidence and open the door to even greater singing!
