A warm, flowing, buzzing feeling in your heart, throat and chest. A rush of tingly energy in your eyes and face. This is what the joy of a well-appreciated singing performance feels like. I've been lucky enough to experience this many times since I was 17. And much more often these days, as I perform my own songs live, regularly. Whether you want the buzz of performance, or the high of participation in singing, I, Selena Mara, Singing Coach here at Sing With Style, support and encourage you on your journey of growth and fulfilment. And I know, from working with hundreds of singers, that not everyone automatically feels that unadulterated joy. Many people struggle with difficult emotions around their singing - fear, nervousness, worry, inhibition. I really feel for them. And I'm not a stranger to those feelings either. On my singing journey, which started when I was about 14, I've had a whole mix of feelings from embarrassment to elation. But the positives have always had the upper hand. Otherwise I might not have kept going! I do feel extremely fortunate that I had one thing which acted like a launch pad, an escalator, a fuel for my singing from very early on. It has nourished and sustained my singing path and helped me pursue it confidently.
I believe it's been the secret ingredient for me to succeed in singing. So what was it ? Something very simple but fundamental. Encouragement. From childhood, I was encouraged (gently, not in a pressured way) by my parents to sing, to play music, to take lessons, to perform. And ever since, they've continued to encourage my singing, whatever form it took - writing, performing, or teaching. This has had the biggest positive impact on my singing journey. I also got encouragement from quite a lot of my friends, in most stages of my life, and also teachers, mentors, peers and co-singers. I feel really lucky. I know not everyone has had this vital emotional/spiritual input. And that means your singing path maybe hasn’t been as energised, supported or propelled forward as you might have wanted or needed.
And I honestly think every singer needs this ingredient. But that's what I'm here for. (Whether or not you ever choose to work with me personally.) Even if all you do is read my blog posts or my emails… Know that I'm always sending encouragement your way. Imagine a big bright, glowing sun-like orb of encouragement, flowing from me to you, cheering you on, to follow your singing passion. Let it fill all the gaps where you needed encouragement in your life and didn't get it. Let it inspire you to sing wherever you want.
Let it lead you to success, whatever that means to youu. Let it help you feel the joy and love of singing outweighing any fears. So you can express yourself fully and confidently, and connect with others as you do so. Yeah! And if you ever do want my personal support, you're welcome to book a one-to-one Free Consultation.
