Performing can be a daunting prospect, especially for the first time, yet most singers find the sense of achievement and learning outcomes outweigh the nerves.
Jasmin performed for the first time at our mid-year concert and while she was a little apprehensive, a warm-up prior to the concert proved to be a successful strategy.
“I warmed up for an hour in the morning so I could forget about technique and just cope with anything new that would hit me when I arrived, like the culture of the audience,” she said.
Yet it wasn’t all smooth sailing, with Jasmin finding it a challenge to connect with the emotion of her first song. “I knew my voice would be fine, I just found it difficult to convey an emotion due to nerves.
“I felt a lot more relaxed during the second performance because I had already performed and I felt more of a connection with the second song. It was easier to connect to an emotion and transfer it to the moment.
“After the performance, I felt a great sense of achievement with my voice goals.”
When is your next opportunity to sing in front of an audience?
