Last Thursday I hosted a Facebook Live Event with my Singing Transformation class and we discussed a key revelation I had recently:
Singing does not stop after you're done singing.
Instead, it is a state of BEING that CONTINUES well after you finish creating sound.
Crazy, no? Allow me to explain! Check out the video below -- excerpts from the event. We'll also sing through a couple key vocal warmups together!
In the video above, you will:
- Sing through an easy example of a Singer Ritual/vocal warmup session -- 2 simple vocal warmups, the lip trill (starting at 3:38) and an "NG" exercise (starting at 6:08)
- Sing along to the warmups with "Visual Cueing," singing cues written on the screen to help reinforce technical concepts like singer breath, mouth shape, and resonance (Visual Cueing is a technique I developed to teach Singing Transformation)
- Learn how singing is a state of physical, emotional, and mental alignment that extends long AFTER you warmup.
- Discover that this is your singer superpower! Singing doesn't stop after you're done singing....
Singing sets the tone for your life. Practicing a daily Singer Ritual helps you establish a state of presence and joy that can extend into the rest of your day.
What do you think? Does the idea of singing as a state of BEING get you psyched?
Did you sing along to the warmups? How did they feel?
Leave me comments to let me know!
