- When we’re so focused on things outside our body we’re completely unaware of what’s happening inside our body.
- Your body can either be your biggest advocate or your worst enemy when it comes to singing.
- It all goes back to mind body breath and voice.
- Every time you phonate you’re training yourself. You’re either reinforcing something that you want to change or you’re reinforcing something that you want to keep.
- What comes out during performance is what you’ve done multiple times and what you’ve trained the body to do.
- A new teacher will have to learn how to serve the student and how to read what the student needs as opposed to imposing their own experience on the student.
- It’s super important for teachers to allow themselves to not be perfect.
Thanks for listening!
