What Is Singing? Seriously. What Do You Think?
by Sally

Singers all hold ideas in mind about what singing is and what it isn’t. I was leading a MythBusters for Singers workshop for the NY Singing Teachers Association, a workshop dedicated to examining those untrue thoughts we all have about singing, when the following exchange happened. It was the perfect teachable moment!

The singer had skipped a few measures of the song while singing the first 16 bars or so and I asked him to start again. This is the conversation that followed.

He was upset and said:
“Darn, I didn’t even start singing yet.”

Sally:
“Really? What were you doing then?”

Student:
“I was just telling a story.”

Sally:
“So what’s singing then?”

Student:
“Well… it’s certainly more than telling a story!”

Sally:
“Is it? Were you telling a story with music?”

Student:
“Yes I was.”

Sally:
“So what is singing then if it’s not telling a story through song?”

I could not have had a better set up to demystify one of the myths of singing. Myth: singing is something extraordinary – outside the norm of communication.

Truth: Singing is the most natural form of communication and the more real and natural and normal it is, the more engaging and amazing it is.

Minutes after this conversation with a redirect from me on how sing the song this man brought the audience to tears with his emotional honesty by simply telling a story through his song.

As he continued to sing the song, his simple honesty allowed him up to really wail and it was thrilling to hear! The audience told me they got goose bumps from his performance. The singer felt empowered.

It is amazing how simple, honest communication through song communicates volumes to your audience.

Is it time for you to examine what you think singing is? Let me know! I’ll help you change your mind about singing. With Sing Like You Speak™ singing is as simple and natural as talking to your best friend.

Singing Is Praying Twice

Our spiritual director is always telling us that singing is praying twice. The vibrational level of singing calls out to the Universe on a higher wavelength. Our singing – your singing – is a great joy to Spirit.

There are those who would say to me – a voice trainer – that God would not find joy in their singing because it’s so bad. I respectfully disagree.

Everyone is born with the perfect musical instrument – your body. The human body is an amazing machine that functions automatically at a level that is difficult for the human brain to comprehend. When you ask your body to open up in a certain way, it will respond with, “Yea! You remembered! I can now support your voice.”

Last week I had a new-ish student who all of a sudden got the breathing and her voice completely opened up. She said, “Wow, I just had this flashback moment. It was like my body remembered breathing this way when I was a very small child.

YES! That’s it! The breathing was taking her back to Source.

The absolute perfection of the human musical instrument is yours to claim. With a bit of help to use your voice naturally, you can sing. You can feel the joy of singing your song and singing your affirmations.

I am leading a Master Class titled, Sing Your Affirmations|Praying Twice™. Sing your affirmations for double the energy and possibly double the manifestation!

I am so excited about leading this Master Class! It brings together those things I care most about. I love to teach singing. I love how happy I feel when I’m singing my affirmations. I love the empowerment of prayers manifested.

Please join us for an empowering and joyful evening and discover for yourself the Singing is Praying Twice.
