Is your goal to be a professional singer? Are you taking singing lessons in Bend, Oregon or Los Angeles? What are you doing about achieving the ultimate goal of working professionally in the music business or getting a record deal? Someone once said that a goal without a plan is just a daydream. Dreams are an important part of life, but what happens when you can’t get that dream out of your head? When you eat, breathe, and sleep music… that’s when it’s time to take action. No one ever became a Grammy winning pop singer by dreaming alone. It takes wanting it so bad that you are willing to put in the time to become the best. You are competing against the most talented, and polished singers in Bend, Oregon, Los Angeles, frankly the best all over the world. These artists take singing lessons weekly and work their asses off to make it happen. Malcolm Gladwell has a philosophy that to become the best in your field at something, you must put in 10,000 hours of specific dedicated practice. This means that you would spend three hours a day, for approximately ten years to become a master. He studied the top violinists in the world, the top golfers, pro athletes etc, and found 10,000 hours was the average time it took to be at the top of your game. You want a record deal? What are you doing to be at the top of your game?
You may be starting from the beginning taking singing lessons or even hiring a voice coach for the first time, and thinking, ‘I don’t have 10 years to spend training’. Believe me, I understand your pain but there is an answer. First you need to start taking singing lessons today with a professional voice coach who can teach you all the skills you need quickly and without wasting time. While there are no short cuts to ultimate success, there are things that I can teach you will greatly accelerate your results. For example, I teach you a breathing technique that would take you six weeks to master with any other voice coach in Bend, Oregon or Los Angeles in only one session. This cornerstone technique will make you a significantly better singer and without it, you can’t build your castle. The reason I became a voice coach in Los Angeles was because I had the same dream that you have. I wanted to be a singer in Los Angeles, more than anything in the world, but I didn’t know how to make it happen. After seven years of singing lessons with the top vocal coach in Northern California I moved to Los Angeles to pursue this dream. I had no idea what I was doing in regards to the business and had to learn everything the hard way for another decade. That is why I decided after living my dream in Los Angeles, to pay it forward and open a studio in Bend, Oregon as well. I took everything I learned in training and working with the elite and teach you how to make it quicker, easier, and how to enjoy it along the way. I created The Golden Voice, and decided to not only teach singing lessons in Los Angeles, but to do Artist Development. Lo and behold my business took off and I was blessed to be able to work with many of the voices you hear on the radio today. The Golden Voice team has sold over 50 million records and has 100 million plays on Youtube, and relationships with all the major record labels. I could go on, but really this is about you.
Despite what you may believe, the key to making it as a pop star first is talent, then your brand which is created by Artist Development. I have discussed this at length with Larry Rudolph who created Britney Spears and still manages her career. You must know who you are as an artist, and for someone who is young; this is the most challenging part. Do you know who you are? If so, how does that translate into a marketable money making product that a record label can sell. Every artist out there has some type of brand, and if you work with The Golden Voice, I will teach you how to find yours, just like Larry Rudolph helped Britney. You may think Britney is a bad example but the according to Billboard, she has sold over 100 million albums, so my point is concrete.
If you are willing to take singing lessons and grow as an artist, together we will develop you into a marketable version of who you are on the inside. As an artist myself, my goal is to help you find your sound, your look, your persona, all based on you. Nobody likes a faker, that’s why Britney worked, she really was this naughty little school girl. Who ever you decide to be as an artist, you need to make the world not only believe it, but love you, so it’s gotta be 100% real. You must be the best singer you can possibly be to beat out all these other people trying to make it in Los Angeles. This requires taking singing lessons regularly. My students who are signed, take singing lessons five days a week on Skype when they are getting ready to record or tour. If you’re not signed I suggest taking a minimum of one singing lesson a week at my Bend, Oregon studio or via skype, and then practicing the other four days on your own. Skype is a great was to take singing lessons if you don’t live in Bend, Oregon or Los Angeles. Either way, your talent level is up to you. No one is going to hand you your dream career. It only works that way in Disney movies. In Los Angeles, becoming a pop star has a method. I can teach you that method. Nothing makes me happier than helping someone who deserves it, someone who works hard for their dreams. With hard work, dedication and a good attitude you can have that edge so that when your opportunity comes, your ready.
