How to Sing With Confidence

Boulder Voice Lessons Teacher, Joshua South

First and foremost… I’m a singer.

I’ve always been a performer, from playing Tiny Tim when I was eight years old, to the current day where I’m working on five different shows within the next two months.

I get it.

Trying to get confident is a little bit scary… when you walk out on that stage, you’re all alone.
-The lights are bright.
-You can’t see the back of the house.
- What if you forget the words.
- Maybe you’re worried you’ll crack
- What if people will laugh at you… not like you…whatever.

We have All. Been. There.

I can show how to overcome those fears.

I can give you a vocal technique that will teach you to sing with your true self, your true voice, and without any fear of cracking.

I’m not saying you’ll never be nervous again.
I’m not saying it will be easy, or you won’t have to work hard.

This vocal technique is life changing… and it makes you improve FAST.

Hey Josh, soooo…. When am I going to get better at singing?

Do you want to learn the proper singing techniques? Set up a voice lesson with me... I’m more than happy to show you!  (also check out my YouTube page)

Hey Josh, I know you sing opera, but I want to sing rock ‘n’ roll....Are you gonna make me sound like Opera Man from Saturday Night Live?

Josh: So you want to sing like Axl Rose? Yeah, me too... how about we work on your voice, and you can sound like your best you. You are unique and so is your voice. Let’s get to work on it and see what we can do! By the way, I also sing Jazz, Musical Theatre, Pop, Gospel - anything I can get deep on!

And.....How can I get better at performing?

Josh: confidence, confidence, confidence.... get’cha confidence here. Nothing says confidence like being a master at what you are doing. Bruce Lee had confidence – Jim Morrison had confidence…

Do you want to learn how to sing the high notes, do you want to learn how to sing the low notes, do you want to control an audience with your voice?

How a child’s temper tantrum taught me to sing better

It was a simple mistake.... I should’ve known better.

I hope I didn’t mess this kid up for life, but…

I cut his pancake in half.

Cue the earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear meltdown now.

This poor little snowflake son of mine tilted his head back and let out the most primal, and yet coordinated, chest voice and falsetto functional sound you have ever heard. I’m gonna have to cut his pancake tomorrow, just so I can record this for you.

My amazing teacher Franco Bertacci, talks about this sound as the natural sound of the Larynx.

With no vowel, lots of air, and a neutral sound, this is basically called - the function sound!

Try it...have somebody cut your pancake, and let out (dys)functional sound. It actually feels really good. It’s like a bombshell of emotion exploding, after seeing your sweet, beautiful chocolate-chip pancake being destroyed before your very eyes.

Don’t try this at home, kids. For real. Hit me up with the online session, and we’ll talk about it.

For those seeking a strong chest voice that you can take higher in your voice, this is an invaluable addition to your arsenal of vocal technique!
