😍 We’re super proud of all our amazing students who took to the stage yesterday to perform at our Christmas Performance Party!!

👏 We like to organise these events for students who sing for pleasure as a way to ensure they put into practice what they’re learning in their lessons!

🎄 It’s also made us feel very festive!! 😁

Sometimes when you’re developing your singing technique you have to go through a period of sounding worse before you sound better!! 😬

This can be difficult to understand but it’s best explained by the concept of going for function over sound. Your muscles might need to learn a new coordination and the quickest route to finding that may be to make some exaggerated sounds. 😝

The good news is that this is only a temporary measure and once your body understands the coordination we’re going for it’s a lot easier to refine the sound into something we like!! 😁

How often do you check in with your chest voice?

So many singers come to lessons with issues getting the quality and ease they want in their high notes and are surprised that the first thing I do is work on the lower notes! That’s because the chest voice forms the foundations for everything above it and if your foundations are weak so will the rest be!

Photos from Heather Baker Singing Studios's post 02/11/2023

Have you tried singing high notes and not quite made it as successfully as you’d like? Perhaps you used one of these strategies that tend not to lead to easy, efficient, effective high notes?!

Or was it something else? What other approaches have you found leading you into trouble?!

Today is the day I present my final Masters Research for assessment!

I have spent the last 3 and a bit years studying, writing, researching and tearing my hair out in between continuing to run my businesses, teach my wonderful clients and train some fantastic teachers! Occasionally I even saw my family! 😂

This final research involved learning how to do statistical analysis which is no easy thing for a creative mind!! It’s been challenging but hugely rewarding.

So here’s a huge shout out to everyone who supported me on this journey! I cannot wait to get my day off back… and maybe tackle a few things on my ever growing “to-do” list that has gone ignored while I obsess over this!! 😂 👏👏👏

🤗 We believe building your performance skills is an essential part of learning to be a great singer and that’s why we run Saturday Sessions every 2-3 months!

Our next sessions take place this coming Saturday 23rd September:

4.30-5.30pm under 16s

Some photos from our Saturday Sessions that took place last week!

👍 It was the first time we’d run a session specifically for kids as well as our usual adult sessions and what a great success that was!! 😁

👏These sessions are designed to give our singers a safe environment to begin working on performing in front of people! Most had never sung solo in front of an audience before and they all went away having a positive experience of doing so!

We’ll be running some more sessions in September so keep an eye out for details on those!! 😁

Don’t get confused about relaxation when you sing… this is a result of things you do… it’s not the
process you go through to sing well!

So instead of constantly telling yourself to relax… figure what you can control to get to a feeling of relaxation when you sing- you’ll be more successful this way! 😃
