Learn to Sing with Complete Artistic Freedom
Whence training one of my pupils the other day, I came across this little stumbling block that was evidently impeding my pupil’s progress as a singer: Holding back. Not letting it out. Not allowing oneself to let go of your old ghosts to find your musical freedom. Your TRUE artistic freedom! This is a pretty common scenario. I come across this all too often.
When you've done the training, to the letter, and by this I mean singing in key, working your way up and down the scales with a clear, powerful, connected tone and with good control, you SHOULD be able to do exactly that when you sing ANY song. Training prepares the voice. It prepares YOU. It helps you FIND your true voice. So why then should you not use that to YOUR advantage? I know… it's easy to regress into your old ways, but if you really want to improve your singing voice, allow yourself to adapt to change. Stop holding on to the past! USE your voice. Don't hold back. Let it out! It really is that simple.
What you need to understand is that if your voice has been there in training, it can do it again if you let it. So instead of THINKING too much, WORRYING too much and such like—let the voice do the job it is meant to do. If it HAS been there before in training, YOUR voice can do it again when you sing a song. Try to understand WHY you train. And try to APPLY your training. Best way to go about it, is to just let it happen. Throw away your inhibitions and Sing with Complete Artistic Freedom! It's a lot easier than you think.
You are the instrument, learn to sing like a pro!
