Earlier this year, I was working with a singer Rosie, who sings in a semi-professional choir in London. She had always enjoyed singing as a hobby, and she yearned for her voice to be something she could feel proud of. But she was bogged down by an insidious, limiting belief. Somehow, deep down in her soul, she felt that a great singing voice was a gift that you either had - or hadn't. and she hadn't. Still, she felt optimistic enough to come to me for lessons and see if her voice could be improved, at least a bit. So that she could be more of an asset to her choir. As we worked together with my weird and wonderful exercises, we could really hear some new and gorgeous sounds coming through. She was truly surprised what her voice could do with a bit of tweaking from me! Rosie admitted that she still felt under the spell of the idea that a fabulous singing voice was down to Fate / destiny / magic / unfathomable talent. But as she came to understand her voice better, it was a breakthrough to realise that her singing voice was actually a MUSICAL INSTRUMENT that she could LEARN to PLAY more skillfully. When she said it out loud – ‘My voice is an INSTRUMENT that I am learning to PLAY’ - it was like a release for her. ‘This really takes the pressure off’ said Rosie. ‘I see that my voice is not just a mysterious and independent part of me. It's a piece of equipment I can get to grips with, and make work in wonderful ways.’ ( And she did. Over a few weeks, her voice grew in richness, power, and versatility. And she was thrilled with her new-found contribution to the choir. ) It was a real joy for me to hear her feel empowered and liberated like that. And I hope you do too! Your voice can do miraculous things when you know how to play it! If you'd like my help to discover what those things are, you're welcome to book in with me for a Free Consultation.
