This new singing tips video is a response to some of the confusion I've heard/seen around YouTube and in general surrounding singing and how to sing!
Specifically, I want to debunk three lies:
(1) That singing is "natural" and in order to sing like a pro, you just have to forget about technique and FEEL the music! While this is, to some degree, part of the art and craft of singing, so many people underestimate how much time and effort goes into finding your singing voice.
(2) That if you can't learn how to sing a song the very first time you attempt it, you'll never be able to sing it! This is a huge mental block people experience, and I want to explain how this is simply NOT the case.
(3) That belt singing or big hefty sounds require a ton of TENSIONS and EFFORT in the face and throat. This is a misconception! Even though performers make "belting faces" and emote in their faces when they hit high notes, it has nothing to do with the production of sound. In fact, when done...
The number one topic singers ask me about is belting. I can't blame them -- belting is super fun to do, incredibly popular, and sounds super cool when you nail it.
A lot of you have joined my complete, A-to-Z belting course called Belt Your Face Off!, which is loads of fun and incredibly effective. It's the "belting mothership," and is a comprehensive look at belting that takes you, step-by-step, through warmups, practice sessions, homework, audio downloads, and enables you to master belting. I highly recommend you check it out if you're serious about studying belting.
But what if you're just dipping in your toe? Maybe you're just a little bit curious, and aren't ready to take the plunge? What if you want a "crash course" in belting -- the cliff notes, if you will -- before you decide if you're ready to go on the Belt Your Face Off! journey with me?
Behold! A brand new, completely free, completely fun belting course (taught by me) that teaches you the top three steps to belt...
