Why Stress Isn’t Always a Bad Thing

Why Stress Isn’t Always a Bad Thing

If you’re trying to breathe and stay calm in more stressful situations and generally remain cooler under pressure, then you’ll often be approaching the idea of stress as something ‘bad’ that you need to ‘fix’ or address.

How to Create Rules For a Great Life

Having rules that govern your life, behavior, and choices might seem confining and restrictive.
But there’s a profound freedom that comes from living by a set of rules that you’ve chosen for yourself.

You are probably familiar with the Serenity Prayer: 
“God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.”

Do you Overthink?

Do you Overthink?

In the last 23 years working with singers there’s one thing I see getting in their way that has NOTHING to do with the vocal instrument, musicianship, or performance.
