confidence Jan 27, 2021

One of the biggest reasons that singers choose to work with me is because they want to know how to be a confident singer. Totally get it!

 One of the biggest mistakes that singers make is the thought that…
“Confidence comes from experience, so if you just keep doing what you are doing you’ll get better…eventually.” - thinking this is normal...but also a huge mistake.
