How to Build Confidence When Singing in Front of Others

1. Positive Self-Talk:

  Remember, your thoughts shape your reality! If you can't muster up your own positive affirmations like "I've got this!" or they just aren't cutting it, find short affirmations that deeply resonate with you. Websites like Pinterest can be a goldmine for these.

  Invest in cute Post-It notes, like these , and place them wherever you need that extra boost of confidence. Repeatedly recite these affirmations, even if you don't fully believe them yet – because you will in time!

2. Energizing Music:

  Music can be your best ally before a performance. Find songs that pump you up and put you in a positive mindset. Here are some suggestions:

  - "Believer" by Imagine Dragons

  - "BIGGER" by Beyonce

  - "Don't Stop Believing" by Journey

  - "Expression" by Salt N Pepa

  - "Firework" by Katy Perry

  - "Flames" by David Guetta & Sia

  - "Main Vein" by Jamiroquai

  - "Show Yourself" by Idina Menzel

  - "This Girl Is On Fire" by Alicia Keys

  - "Thunder" by Imagine Dragons

3. Release Nervous Energy:

  Engage in activities that make you feel empowered, like exercising! Choose something you genuinely enjoy. Personally, I follow the inspiring YouTube channel GrowWithJo for motivation and mood enhancement.

4. Mind-Body Connection:

  Incorporate yoga into your routine, especially Yoga for Singers/Musicians. Check out Yoga With Adriene on YouTube for excellent guided sessions.

5. Keep It in Perspective:

  Remember that singing is not rocket science. It's not as complex as building a rocket for a mission to Mars. Relax and ease off the pressure.

6. Your Audience Supports You:

  Most of the people you're singing for want you to succeed. They can't imagine doing what you're doing, so recognize the courage and passion it takes to step onto that stage.

7. Believe in Yourself:

  If someone believes in you, why not believe in yourself? Your self-confidence is your best asset.

8. Visualization:

  Visualize your success. See yourself performing well, from what you'll wear to how you'll walk onto the stage. Even imagine the celebratory meal afterward!

9. Practice Builds Confidence:

  Sometimes the best remedy is repetition. The more you perform, the more comfortable and confident you'll become. Discover what conditions work best for you, such as avoiding excessive socializing before a performance.

10. Embrace the journey of self-discovery and SIMPLY enjoy singing
