Let Your Voice be F.R.E.E is a simple structure to help singers focus their efforts in the right way!
F is for 'Focus the Mind': So often we get caught up in our heads and the brain goes crazy thinking "what if I forget the words?", "what if nobody likes my voice?", "what if I'm not good enough?". This is completely normal, it's just not very helpful! Learning to give your brain a different job, keeps it focussed on the task at hand - how to sing and why to sing. And that's where the rest of it comes in!
R is for 'Relax the Body': your body is the home of your voice and a relaxed home makes for a more relaxed sound. It's very normal to experience tension in the body (typically the jaw, tongue, throat and abdomen) when singing. But with practice we can learn to release that tension and the result is more freedom for the voice!
E is for 'Energise the Breath': No sound happens without breath! Lots of technique is centred around learning how to breath properly (deep belly breathing as opposed to shallow breathing that lifts your shoulders up and creates unnecessary tension). Over time, you can build your breath capacity and learn how to control the release of you breath more effectively. But it takes energy! And Practice!
E is for 'Engage with the Emotion': this is vital and harkens back to the first step to 'Focus your Mind'. If you find yourself feeling nervous and scary 'what if' thoughts are flooding in, gently guide your mind to the emotion behind the song. We sing to tell stories and every story has some emotion behind it - sadness, joy, anger, passion. Learning to engage the emotion and communicate effectively is your most important job as a singer. We only learn all the rest of it so we can tell the story with more colour and more confidence
