Übungsroutine während der Sommerpause

Herzlichen Glückwunsch!

Wie ich in meinem letzten wöchentlichen Nugget schrieb, ist es Zeit, um die grosse Leistung zu feiern. Du hast ein ganzes Semester oder eine ganze Saison in einem Opernhaus gesungen. Jetzt schenke dir und deiner schönen Stimme zunächst eine belohnte Ruhe und Urlaub. In meiner Praxis als Opernsängerin nahm ich mir immer acht bis zehn Tage Zeit für mich und meine Stimme, d.h. etwa 5 Tage überhaupt kein Singen, und dann begann ich langsam, mich auf die nächste Saison vorzubereiten.

Eine gute Möglichkeit, in deinem Urlaub auf dem Laufenden zu bleiben, ist es, wenigstens deine 30-minütige Gesangs-Wellness-Vokalisierung durchzuhalten. Sängern, die sich auf die Wettbewerbe im Herbst vorbereiten, schlage ich vor, ihre Sommerzeit sinnvoll zu nutzen. Hoffentlich bleibt dein Gesangslehrer mit dir auf Kurs. Fordere dich selbst heraus, aber habe auch Spass.

Herzlich
Vera Wenkert

Mindset Discipline Goal Setting

These are topics we singers have to work on constantly . Autumn is an awesome time to do it because auditions coming up, the Theaterseason has just started etc..
Today I want to lead you to ask yourself a couple of questions that will empower you to find your individual way towards reaching your singing goals:
1st: Is your audition repertoire vocally and musically ready to present with shine?
2nd: What do you really want to achieve with your singing?
3rd: Are you doing the things you can do to achieve the most out of the opportunity you have?

MINDSET
Your mindset is really important when it comes to your singing success. Believing that you can be a good singer and performer, that there are opportunities, where you can sing either for money or just for the fun of making music is very important. You have to believe it first before it can happen that you are shining as a singer otherwise you can find yourself talking yourself down and distracted by doubts and negativity.
First you have to decide that you are going to work with determination towards your goals that goes hand in hand with being grateful for the people and things you already have in your life and the things you already have achieved.
Ask yourself the question: Why do you want to have this singing career?

DISCIPLINE
Very important in a singers life is discipline. Yeah! You calmly have to work towards your goals every single day with dedication, which means to work on your vocal technique and on your music. Keep going and that is how you make progress. I promise you will love it, when you be in the music every day and find the phrasing, solve vocal challenges of the aria or part etc.
Grab your pen and notebook and write down what is in your individual power to get your mindset and discipline in place to work towards your singing goals. Every career path starts with a clear mindset and discipline!
Wishing you a wonderful journey into your special Musicland today
