Great Start For 9 Year Old

Congratulations to my singer/student Shane Davis, 9 years old.  He was selected to the cast of “Priscilla, Queen of the Desert” a Broadway National Tour that ran for a year.  Shane played the son of the main male lead.

Shane is a talented singer, dancer, and actor.  I am so proud of him.  Shane is also a very nice brother.  He gets along well with his younger brother, Brady (7).  Both Shane and Brady have been working with me for nearly three years.

The year tour is now over and we are so pleased to have Shane back with us.  Both boys work hard to improve their vocal abilities and performance skills.  Currently Shane (10) is performing on

Broadway.  He landed a child role in “Matilda”.

 Never stop training and improving, have faith, and remember dreams do come true.

VOCAL TRAINING – WHAT LEVEL ARE YOU AT?

­Vocal training along with performance experience are key factors to being a successful performer. There are different levels of training.  For instance, a beginner singer is considered a Level 1 student who works on simple vocal techniques and easy songs.  An intermediate level/Level 2 singer who has been singing on their own for a while and has some talent.  This singer works on a little more advanced vocal  techniques and songs.  An advanced Level 3 and 4 student has had vocal training from vocal coaches and some performance experience.  The training levels continue – It doesn’t end there.  Some students take lessons for a year or two and stop.  They think they are ready to go out and “tackle the world”.  The more training you have, the better chance you have of succeeding.  If you’re not sure where you belong, watch Delly’s blog.

 It takes many years of vocal training to accomplish and master vocal techniques.  The more training you have, the better you will be as a singer/performer.  Keep improving and never stop training.  Through correct vocal training, you will gain confidence and self-esteem.  Don’t be afraid to ask questions and get help.   Don’t give up – Dreams do come true.

How to take care of your voice

You need to do is drink plenty of water to keep your vocal cords moist.

Get plenty of sleep before you perform.

If you have sinus problems or seasonal allergies, be sure to take your allergy medicine daily.

A good home remedy is “Nasal Rinse”.  It cleans out your sinus passages.

If you have a mild sore throat problem, try gargling with one table spoon apple cider vinegar, one table spoon salt, mixed with one cup of warm water.
