A recording of your music is supposed to be the best representation of your talents – better even than your live shows. Your recordings are your professional opportunities to showcase exactly what you have to offer. They should be engineered to achieve the specific desired effects that you want with good production and effective mastering completed. Your goal ought to be to produce a master-quality representation of your music.
You have to be taken seriously and you have to show your talent in every performance. You have to be at a place where you are using not just your mind but also your body to express out various emotions through the use of body language. Try and set up your own little performance for your friends or a group of people. Complete songs that are in your range so that you can impress people with your talent. You have to stay in practice regularly so that you are quick in mastering a new song. Entertain people with your true style and integrity. Give away your music free of charge. These may be small actions but set an example for others.
Your body language when in the recording studio should exude confidence and you should speak with your hands only. Your facial expressions go along with the tone of your voice. Every note you play should flow from your heart. You have to carry a happy and upbeat mood even when you are feeling down in the studio. Let the expression and the feeling for the song exude from your heart.
When you want to make your own recordings in the studio, you may need to try a less instrumental approach. This is also known as making music in a box. The advantage of this type of arranging is that you do not need to have all the equipment that you need just to record. You can simply plug your headphones into your personal stereo for amazing music.
Your mood and the way you feel are a great gauge of how you will perform. Make sure that you conduct yourself with class and champ in every performance. You will be amazed how the first few sessions go so well if you use the same frame of mind. You will suffer from nerves and experience your first few takes. This is all part of the process. Listen to the drops you took in the toilets on the recording night. Didn’t they just splurge millions in a toilet bowl? If you don’t think it sounds good, you had better rip open a can of beans.
A fresh set of auspicious moments are usually the best. Singing on the streets, on a bench, or anywhere else, will help you feel more comfortable and bring out those creative juices. Sometimes the pressure of recording can cause a drop in your immune system. This is normal and if it happens, you won’t feel a lot of joy. If you feel extra special or unique it is best to get yourself a different set of clothes. This could be your regular everyday wardrobe but once you hear the unique sound you like, you will be tempted to try something new.
For your voice, you don’t need to go all out. S Responsibility for your voice is at the forefront. It is no good having someone who sounds great in the studio but can’t carry a tune in a crowd. It is best to have one or two people who are versatile and can play on electric or studio mics as well as sing.
In summary, you need a great technique, great support and above all, you need to believe and look forward to getting the audience involved and enjoying themselves as well as you. Set your goals today so you don’t find yourself in a situation where you have to close your eyes and wonder what might have been when you have your glass of red in hand and your audience is enthralled by the sound of your voice. Don’t be afraid to admit it when it’s going badly but don’t let it put you off. If you are having trouble with a particular song or performance, write it down and refer to it if you need to. If you are feeling young or gutsy, try mixing it up with another technique. If you are still in the initial process of learning it, set your goals and improve them over time, just as you would if you were learning from a tutor. If you are needing extra practice, make sure you have some form of practice established, be it daily, weekly or monthly. Set different small targets and mark them down as soon as you are able to. Discipline, even to this, will help in achievement, and patience and persistence will help you endure and endure will help you endure.
