Everybody’s having a blast a karaoke... Except me.
These people were ripping out Whitney Houston, Adele, all the great Broadway tunes, and after they got done singing they were rewarded with high-fives, hugs and complimentary shots.
Not Me... just crickets.
I felt terrible, here you are all having a great time and all I got was the obligatory sideway glances and congratulatory pats on the back.
I was so embarrassed…
An acquaintance regaled this story to me after I mentioned that I was an opera singer, and had a voice lessons studio in the Boulder area.
Now, what can we do to learn from this infomation?
We don’t want to be embarrased or fail! We all wanna slay the dragon - be the hero, save the day, or just kick some serious tushy at karaoke!
I propose a few ways to move forward from here:
1. This might seem a bit obvious, but choose an appropriate song. Do some research; sing along to some karaoke tracks at home, and see if you can actually hit all the notes.
2. Take some voice lessons.
Voice teachers can help you learn how to sing better. Actually, these videos that I made will help you learn to sing better, and are totally free.
3. Practice, Practice, Practice – but practice with proper technique. If you don’t know proper technique, see #2.
These ideals can appeal to all types of performing – School plays, Community theatre, Auditions…
