After reading my first post you may say: - Ok, it is cool but I cannot sing. Not only that, I cannot sing a single note of a piano! Don’t worry. The best singers are those who are willing to learn...and never give up before the first audio problem.
Here my humble suggestions:
- Try it in the shower.
Yes, it seems silly but the acoustic is fantastic! I hear your voice telling me: -„I don’t know what to sing“. Ok here my answer: go and pick up your favourite CD. Listen to it many times. Now, concentrate in your favourite song. Listen to it while you are driving to work, while having lunch. I don’t know where, just listen to it. You will tell me what happens next morning.
- If after a while you think you are good; e.g. join your local chorus.
Fortunately for us mortals, choruses are always looking for volunteers. A chorus will help you to lift up your self-steem because while you are singing you are being bombarded with the same tone all over your body. In the end you will not failed the tone. Believe me. Ask the conductor to be mentored /couched by an experienced member. You will meet new people, perhaps you may sing in another city for Christmas. Just prepare to be surprised.
- If you think other members might sing better than you.
Congratulations. You are on the right way. There is nothing worse than having a mushroom attitude in life. We will always find someone who is more talented, gorgeous, intelligent than us. But you can make a difference on how you face circumstances. If you discovered, that singing is boring to you, well done! At least you have tried something new. Chapeau! Go and find something you will really enjoy and keep you up during winter...or maybe singing is the first step to discover your new hobbie.
What I just said about the fact that makes me unique is the way I am passionate about singing. I wake up and I think about music. What I will do. How can I improve this or the other aria/song. And the list continues. Someone called me I dream too much. But this is what passion is about. To accomplish your dream. And it is going to be only you who will have to think about how you can improve your singing.
I will give you just a couple of ideas:
+ Ask your conductor, he will be willing to help you on your journey.
+ Surf on the internet.
+ And least but not last, listen to the singers (good ones of course).
Good luck on your search of your passion!!!
