Get out of your singing rut and try something new – it will make you a better singerListed on August 17, 2015 in Blogs!
I’ve written before about how you can use the long choir break to get better at what you do.
One way is to attend singing workshops lead by a variety of different leaders. It’s a great opportunity to try something new.
It’s easy to get stuck in a specific part or be seen in a particular way if you sing in a choir regularly (see Is how you label yourself as a singer holding you back?).
Being in novel situation (different leader, singing with strangers, unusual song genre, unexpected venue) offers you the chance to experiment and even to re-invent yourself. Who knows, you might discover something new!
Try a different voice part. If you always sing soprano, try being in the low altos for a change. If you always gravitate to the low part, try singing the high.
It’s always useful to exercise that part of your voice you don’t use that often. You need to keep the whole of your range in good shape.
You’ll be amazed when you come back to your normal part – your voice will be richer and feel freer.
Don’t believe me? Try it out!
