This episode is a follow up to episode #39, to give you even more creative ways to find gigs so that you can build your bio, resume, and peformance experience. Remember, ask not what other people can do for you, but what YOU can do for them!
In this episode, Sara answers a common question that poses quite a paradox for beginning singers. A student wrote that she was trying to get gigs. How do you get the gigs if they want a resume, bio, and MP3s, when you can’t build a resume/bio without getting the gigs? Here Sara will help you find how to include some of the concerts/activities you’ve sung at or participated in and put them into your bio/resume so that they can help you get more gigs.
In this episode, Sara gives you a few guidelines on how long you should be working/practicing before you see results. Beginners, this is for you. However, if you’re more advanced, and want to make a living out of music and singing, pay no attention whatsoever to time. Real musicians? REAL musicians don’t look at our watches when we’re in the practice room. We don’t play and sing music because we want money, fame, or any kind of recognition. It is our sole source of expression. We make music because we have no other choice. It pours out of our souls, our pores, or being. It is not separate from us. It IS us. If you’re looking to be a professional singer, you won’t pay attention to the time it takes for you to improve. You will put your head down (not literally) and practice, practice PRACTICE. And you will enjoy it.
Cheers. Now go practice.
