Secrets of Fearless Performers

Secrets of Fearless Performers

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what stands in the way of reaching our musical goals besides the actual musical training.

Often discomfort and fear are the only things holding us back. It’s true for kids and adults.

It’s okay to feel that way, because courage requires vulnerability.

You can do uncomfortable things. You can acknowledge the fear or uncertainty and choose to do what scares you anyway.

I’m reminded of how much courage I needed to muster when I quit my corporate job in 2008 to start my journey as an entrepreneur. Or how I started Portland Musical Theater Company in 2016 with just a dream of producing theatre that would bring audiences hope and joy.

I’m living proof you can do things even if you’re scared. You can feel the fear and do it anyway.

Choose courage.

(and it works the same no matter our gender or age)

Nevertheless, this is exactly how many of us live: we work for eight hours or more a day and then we come home feeling too tired and exhausted to do much of anything with our time. So, we sit and watch TV.

The same thing repeats and repeats and the most excitement we have is a holiday once a year to look forward to. Is that really living?

Learn To Sing Correctly Every Time

Learn To Sing Correctly Every Time

Kids tend to find singing very amusing and never miss a chance to show off their singing talent. For some kids, the desire to sing does not wear off by getting older. In some cases, it grows even stronger and it becomes a passion they wish to pursue as adults. In this case, singing becomes a bit more challenging. It’s one thing to make singing mistakes as a kid and quite different to become embarrassed in a karaoke contest. In fact, many people give up singing as adults, simply because they are afraid of the harsh criticism they may get.
