This is part 2!
So, my last tip was about learning to be a good singer. THIS tip is about learning to take your singing "career"/passion to the next level.
If you are wondering how to be discovered, or just how to get out there, this is the tip for you!
& GETTiNG OUT THERE &
So in order to be discovered, you need to make yourself known.
The first thing that people usually resort to is YouTube. Yes, many stars have been found out of YouTube, but that is not the only way.
Here are some ways to get yourself prepared for that...
O1. Sing in your school choir.
Before you get out there, you want to get used to singing with other people and to learn the basics.
O2. Sing in your church youth band.
A lot of singers started by singing in their church.
O3. Find a singing agency and send in a demo.
Before, you do this, make sure it is something you are willing to commit to. It is a big deal. You need to be professionally recorded if you want a chance...your demo need to be GOOD.
O4. Sing in coffee shops and small cafes.
Some small cafes and and coffee shops have open mic nights. Take advantage of this and sing a song that you love and are good at. You may not be amazing yet, but it will get you used to singing in front of people.
O5. Make a YouTube video.
I am SO not against putting your voice out there on YouTube, I am just saying it isn't the ONLY way. But it is a great way to see what others think about your voice. You are sure to get some honest feedback there :)
& RESEARCH and READiNG &
Make sure you do enough researching and reading before you make any big decisions.
Read up on how famous singer got their start and where they sent in their demos.
Read about different agencies and see which ones are the most reputable.
& LESSONS &
I talked about this in my previous singing tip, but I really want to emphasize this. You need to make sure you know what you are doing.
Take lessons and learn as much as you can about music and singing. Learn your notes, learn all of the singing terms, learn if you are a soprano or an alto, learn your scales.
You cannot just expect to all of a sudden be a famous singer. It takes a lot of time and a lot of work.
& TALENT AGENCiES &
If you are really serious about being a singer, then a talent agency is probably right for you. Talent agencies help get your name out there and gives you experience.
You cannot just choose any random agency because they seem nice, or a scout gave you their card and told you to audition. You need to make sure that the one you choose is a good one, your safety and money are on the line.
I was thinking about auditioning for a talent agency called Actors Models and Talent for Christ (AMTC) because they are COMING TO SEATTLE! But, I didn't feel like that was where God was calling me to. But maybe you are being called to audition there! I did a little research on them and, from what I read and heard, they are a reputable agency. If you want to find out more about the auditions and if they will be coming near you, go to www.amtcaudition.com.
Well that is all I got for ya, darlings!
