At the start of each year (or whenever I need a pick-me-up) I make a list of goals. Some are about musical pursuits, and others are about general health and wellness. As your voice teacher, it's my job to help you achieve your voice-related goals!
It's time to get SMART about our vocal goals this year! Goals should be:
For example, if you want to sing an A5 in head voice by the end of March, that would be "SMART."
If you want to be in a Broadway show by November...that wouldn't check off the boxes of "SMART" because you can't measure week to week or by month how close you are to achieving this! It would be better to set your goal of attending 5 Broadway auditions by November! Make sense?
Let me know what your vocal goals are for this year and we will get to work! :)
