Psychology of Singer: Be Your Best Fan!

Have the willingness to see clearly: Be Your Best Fan and Achieve Your Goals. I often tell my students to will themselves to be calm, and see clearly while visualizing their success.  Combine this with the Acapelladiva method  of  proper breathing, support, and clear sound placement. Employing these tools,  I remind students to ease their negative thoughts or performance anxiety by conquering their thoughts. Often we let others who criticize us determine our destiny, or we become our worst critics  in our minds and undermine and sabotage ourselves. This totally limits our potential as singers. There are plenty of critics out there  so choose be your Best Fan Not your worst critic! Conquer self defeating thoughts acknowledge your successes each and every day. Master your mind as well as your voice. When mastered you are a singer who knows infinite possibilities the universe has to offer.
