We have had our show last week, I had 3 songs to perform with the band.
There was a very good atmosphere. The other singers, the musicians, the dancers, my new singing instructor are all super friendly. They all seem to like me and always compliment me on my voice and my singing.
The problem is, I saw the videos and did not like my performances at all. I could see that I was stressed and it showed. I oversung, and forced on certain notes especially the low ones. I am beginning to think that those people are not telling me the truth because they don't want to hurt my feelings. (Last year I had the exact reverse experience)
One thing is sure, I will correct myself based on what I see and hear, not on what other people tell me. Perception of music is so subjective I know but one sure way to correct yourself is to make short films and record yourself.
Another lesson for me.
Have a great day...
