Over my 27 years as a professional singer, I’ve learned the 5 steps to singing and performance confidence and I use them EVERY time I sing.
Step 1: Prepare
These actions are essential for looking after my body and voice to help me build a solid foundation for my instrument.
Step 2: Practice
Having a practice plan helps to focus on what areas need development.
Step 3: Polish
I use my Song Study method to polish and make a song my own. An easy to follow guide that keeps me on track and reminds me of all the creative options I have available so I can be intentional about my performances.
Step 4: Perform
My favourite step and the reward for all your hard work!
Performing, whether live, in the studio or posting or live-streaming, helps to strengthen many elements of your singing and performance ability.
It also gives you something to work towards and that makes all the difference to keeping motivated in each step.
Step 5: Coaching
You can move through all of these steps by yourself, however you can fast track each stage and boost your confidence in your ability by getting guidance from a vocal coach.
