I always makes time to consult with and work with YOUR referrals!

WHO IS THE AUTHENTIC YOU in the audition????

Stay out of the box that the business wants to put you in!

Instead of defining your TYPE,  I challenge you to discover your TAG LINE!

Each audition can demand a new tag,  and YOU decide what that is.  YOU decide what you choose to reveal to that room and in that room.

You control more than you realize!

Train, study,  know how your voice functions and how it works!
Work with a performance coach on musicality,  on style,  on dramatic intention,  on being PRESENT in the moment.
Discover how that intention motivates the voice.
Decide what that reveals about YOU.
MAKE REAL CHOICES.
MAKE HONEST CHOICES.

It isn't about jazz hands.
It isn't about pretend.
It is about YOU.
It is about YOUR authenticity.
It is about YOUR reveal.

YOUR TAG.

It's up to you.

SUSAN'S RANTINGS!!!!!!!!!

Do I use my legit voice? My belt voice? My mix voice? Is it my head mix or my chest mix or my mix mix?

STOP DOING THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Learn how to SING!  Get the voice balanced and TRUE.  It can't do ANYTHING if it's not balanced. 

I have a secret....are you ready????

SING WITH YOUR OWN VOICE!  PERIOD.  DAMMIT!

The style and genre of the MUSIC informs HOW you dress that voice.  Learn what the voice does first.  Do not get lost in the minutia of "voice speak",  which at the end of the day,  doesn't matter.  It is language that only makes sense IF you or the person who is listening can actually evaluate it.

THE STYLE INFORMS THE TONE. NOT SOMEONE SAYING SING IT IN BELT, MIX BELT,  HEAD MIX,  CHEST MIX, LEGIT.
The shape of the LANGUAGE informs the tone.

In the business these words are thrown around mostly by people who know nothing about singing, and wouldn't be able to explain it technically, nor demonstrate it.  DO NOT GET SUCKED INTO IT!


It simply cannot inform,  if the voice isn't balanced and healthy. 

How are you going to decide what "voice" Ella sings in?  Or Sarah Vaughn?  Or Judy Kaye?  Or Lillias White? or Teresa Stratas? Or Teresa Berganza? what about Aretha?  or Diana Ross? 

In the male category,  what about Pavarotti?  or Sting?  or Bruno Mars?  what about Thomas Young?  Raul Esparza? Phillip Boykin? Trent Armand Kendall?

"Voice Speak" has often developed from the business - to try to evaluate what they hear - without the knowledge of the vocal instrument or the style.

Good singing is simply...GOOD SINGING.  It is healthy.  It is resonant.  It allows you to perform 8 times a week.  Or get through an opera and the rehearsal process without amplification.

Could we simply learn to sing with vibrancy??? With intensity??? With clear and balanced resonance??? And find an instrument that is aware of its physicality and athleticism in order to achieve what is required of it?

SO SING DAMMIT!!!! SING IT WELL!!!  Dress it in the music, and accessorize it as needed, because you CAN!
