Although not precisely about singing technique, this post relates to the need for inner and outer calm to fully liberate your voice. That’s why I want you to know about a new solo piano project I’m creating: Morning Peace.
I have composed 20 pieces but will be choosing between them to see which ones feel right to me then editing the chosen ones before I release them for sale.
Here is a sample of one of them for you to enjoy. I created it using my Music in the Moment (formerly Impropera) style of composing, which is to say that I do not plan or write down the music. I simply improvise it all in one take and either do not edit it at all, or edit it minimally at most. This is the type of music I make in the moment.
Enjoy the possibility of calm in your life… and therefore in your potential to fully liberate your authentic singing voice.
Beautiful. Wonderful. Contemplative. Thank you.
Thanks so much! I’m happy that you enjoyed it. More to come!
my name is Lucy, I’m 15 and I love to act and sing, but I get terrible nerves before performing. when I’m on my own I’m absolutely fine, but as soon as an audience is out in front of me, even someone from my family, I get nervous and sing no where near my full potential. this upsets me because it makes me feel that I can’t show people what I really have got, if you know what I mean?
I get so nervous and I have a shaky voice and shaky hands and legs. I get scared that I’m going to mess up and forget the words or sing a wrong note or something. I need to get over this fear but I don’t know how to? I’ve looked online at a few different ways to calm my nerves but it’s not working. I want to get over this fear and my nerves so that I can show everyone what in really made of and give 100% in all my performances! I love to act and sing and my ultimate dream is to be in musical theatre.
what do you suggest?
p.s. I was also wondering if you have any tips on singing with a cold? I currently have a bad throat and I have a very important performance tomorrow and I want to do my best
It’s taken me forever to get back to you. I apologize for that. It was not because I didn’t care, but rather that was in the middle of a major move August-December and didn’t have internet for quite awhile.
But I’m back now and wondering how you are doing? Has the nervousness gotten any better. Or worse? How are you feeling about your voice?
