Hello everyone, I am Sherry Kennedy and from the time I was 5 years old, I was on stage singing.
Over the years, I have been fortunate to be able to follow my passion and make a good living doing what I love. For me, singing is all about letting your soul dance.
Everyone is different and different things work for different people. I am going to give you some tips on how to improve your vocal instrument but be open and allow yourself to experiment with the instrument you were given.
Don’t be afraid to play with it or make mistakes, we learn by the mistakes we make.
Make sure you find yourself a safe place to practice! Your loved ones may feel they are being supportive but sometimes they may not actually know what they are talking about and their well-meaning words may be very discouraging or hurtful.
Singing is such a personal art form, it is different from playing other instruments because it is internal and it is a part of you! That does not mean you won’t accept constructive criticism or that you don’t have to work on learning how to get the best sounds from your instrument; all part of learning.
Remember it takes practice, but it also takes TLC. If we are too hard on ourselves we will never get better and if we think everything we do is all that and a bag of chips, well, we will never reach our full potential.
Anyone who plays an instrument has to start at the beginning so don’t be discouraged, it is all about developing the skill.
It is best if you don’t compare yourself with others, just learn to be the best you can be and enjoy that process. So here we go; good luck and most of all have fun doing this. See how great it makes you feel as you begin to accomplish some of the steps we will be going through.
