What is your goal when singing?

   (0 reviews)

OK, so by now you may have undertaken some complex tasks to learn to sing to a level that can make people really listen and cheer for you every time you perform?

Feels good, doesn't it?

I guess now you may be wondering what is the next step? Here is where I sometimes discover that singers are a little unclear about what they have in their heart of hearts as their goal. When I say their heart of hearts I actually choose my words very carefully. Having been a vocal coach since 1999, I know that if your heart is not in what you are doing, you are never going to really dig deep to progress to the next level.

Yes, singers spend a great deal of hours working on technique and notes, and range, and their look, and their song hooks. But sometimes it is worth taking a very daring look at what the next tangible step for your singing career?

So, here is where the BE/DO/HAVE exercise can come in.

I want you to look at what you think your goal with your singing might be. Don't worry, it does not have to be absolutely set in stone, it can be moulded later, but for now pop down a goal on a piece of paper for your singing.

Then underneath that overall goal write out a list of the things you need to

BE  in order to obtain that goal

DO in order to reach that goal

HAVE  in order to make that goal a reality

So for example

SINGING GOAL to have 2 gigs a week in the diary for my originals project

Be booked up a month in advance for gigs, clever at marketing, organized, good a negotiating, motivating to work with, appealing to an audience

Do proactive approach to getting gigs, calling 10 new venues a day in order to secure gigs

Have A PA system, promo materials, press release, recorded songs for sale, a mailing list of potential fans.
