How to find time
Hey i was wondering how will i be able to find time for this course as I am a full time student with a part time job? how do you do it? Plus where do you guys train as my mum keeps telling me to stop it as I am so loud doing the lah and leh stuff hahaha
I would watch the videos at night, and do the workouts on my way to work and on my way back home. On the weekends, I would do workouts in the garage, so that I could pay full attention to the lessons, rather than have to pay attention to the road. It was worth it to me, because I really wanted to improve my singing.
Maybe you can find some time to do the Lahs and LAA's when your Mum is out of the house, or you can go somewhere that won't bother her.
It can be difficult to practice but you have to do whatever it takes..even if it means lockin yourself away or finding an empty car park.
Or like Bob says.. When your mum is out of the house..
Grab that moment
Just a suggestion. I hope this helps!
Anytime I have any kind of car ride that is around 40 minutes, I break out a Level 2 workout - if it's an hour, a Master Level workout.
Made a deal with my wife that after dinner and before the kiddos bedtime, I could have that time for voice practice; she does her thing and I go into the music room (my office/spare room) and get after it.
On weekends, any time the family goes off to do something, I squeeze in a practice session then, too.
I am not as consistent as I want to be and my voice is nowhere near where it could be HAD I been more consistent, but that's on me; when I want to badly enough, I find a way to be consistent and get the work in.
Hope that helps...
I try to hit 4-6 evenings a week, and am pretty happy with the progress so far!
I am starting to work these principles into the songs we are doing at this point, and practice standing up with my guitar. As luck would have it, I am also the sole guitarist.... so the expectation is that I am supposed to be some crazy cross between Ritchie Kotzen and Phil X
I am working hard at it, and while I may never be like those 2, I will most certainly become the best version of ME!
I love Phil x, especially in Bon Jovi!| Keep at in man!:)
I sing about a hour per day,30 minutes after eating(as Bob recommended).
I usually attend the gym after having breakfast ,get some lunch as I get home and after 30 mins of admiring my favorite singers(which gets me really motivated for everything) ,I rehearse on and on.
I am currently finishing my masters degree but thankfully i usually have some time in the evenings to get some work done on music and singing. I focus mainly on getting my physical exercise and singing exercise done every week. Some extra time goes towards playing guitar/music things. Thankfully i already learned a ton of guitar for a long time now, giving me more space to practice singing.
> Totally... you wouldn't believe how hard it is to retain composure when very funny people try their best to make you laugh. I am not only learning focus, but crowd interaction :-p
My clownish sibling tried doing that to me once out of boredom.
I looked at him with a "u so funny " face and thus he cutted that out.
Currently I manage 30 mins (to go through the first volume workouts) and then I do around 10-15 mins of song practice. Ideally I'd do an hour but I can't because I live in an apartment and that's how late I get back from work. Also when I'm driving anywhere (not that often really) I do the workouts as well. It's not ideal, but just think how much better that is that no practice at all? And then from there the more you can do... the better. Basically the ideal is an hour every day, but anything is better than nothing right? Which reminds me I need to get a new Lah video up on my post and ask Bob if it's gotten any better haha The eternal LAH dilema.
I will add something from myself.
I had a long break, but now I am very motivated to be doing this again.
I noticed that it is hard for me to really focus when there is someone that can hear me
Better when Im certain that Im alone in my apartment but still.
Now I often go in to my car, drive somewhere, stop and excersise. I know that sitting isnt the best but at least I have a back mirror
Managed to train almost everyday for 2 weeks and intend to keep it:)
Ha, ha! So helpful when they do it with you!
Woke up? Sing. Finished studying at your own? Sing. Back from the school? Sing. Took a shower? Sing. Moon just appeared in the sky? Sing. Watched TV? Sing.
Taking a shower?Sing (careful with that one,trying to do tongue exercises under such circumstances might get you choked).
I know the feeling you get when someone can hear you. But if you're not bothering anybody, try and learn to ignore it. Maybe try and be alone in a room at least and just relax and do your thing. If you know the people that can hear you, you can arrange a time where you do your practicing for instance.
It really helped me to reduce the airflow and do it very softly, as Ken requests.
I'm pretty sure no one was there, but I still have to wonder if someone might have been and thought I was completely mental LOL
I just practice when my flatmates are gone, then I can do it with no worries
Fortunately they are gone quite often
When I'm home and my family's around I don't care, I used to but now I don't and why should I, it's better than playing video games right (from my parents' point of view? hah
Did you reduce the airflow on the servers you were maintaining or was that your voice you were referring to?
Those servers are total blow-hards and are going to lose their voices any day now! He who sings last, sings best !
