This week, we're tackling a topic that every performer grapples with at some point: performance anxiety, nerves, stress – call it what you will. Let's dive in!


Ever felt those butterflies fluttering in your stomach before stepping onto the stage? Or may your palms get sweaty at the mere thought of performing in front of an audience? Well, you're not alone, my friend. Even the biggest names in the industry have been there.

But here's the thing – it's normal! Yep, you heard me right. Feeling those jitters is all part of the singing journey. So, let's debunk the myth that real singers don't get nervous, shall we?

In this episode, we're spilling the beans on some tried-and-true strategies to combat performance anxiety. From Queen B (aka "Beyoncé"), who channels her inner Sasha Fierce, to the legendary Bruce Springsteen, who flips nervousness into excitement – we've got some stellar role models to inspire us.

Ever thought about creating your own alter ego? It's not just for the stars! Channeling a different persona can boost confidence and banish those pre-performance jitters. Plus, it's pretty fun!

And how about reframing those nervous symptoms? Instead of seeing sweaty palms and shaky legs as signs of fear, why not view them as indicators of excitement and readiness? It's a game-changer, trust me.

It's not all about mind tricks and alter egos. Solid preparation is vital! Just taking an exam requires study, and delivering a stellar performance demands vocal technique and practice.

The initial crucial step is to focus on refining your vocal technique. This serves as the cornerstone, the fundamental aspect where you gain proficiency in utilizing your voice healthily. If you're ready to embark on this journey, I'm excited to invite you to this free training session that covers these essential fundamentals, paving the way for your progress.
