I am not a magician. I am a voice teacher. But I can teach you how to create your own magic. Are you ready? Do you believe?
When I was 14 my voice teacher said to me, “Alisa, if you don’t start practicing, I’m not going to teach you.” I was horrified. I loved my teacher, and more than anything I wanted to be a good singer. So I started practicing. Regularly. Every week, a few times a week I pressed play on my cassette player and sang along to my lessons. And the most amazing thing happened! I got better. And better! I was improving so much more rapidly. So I kept practicing! I was hooked. It was like magic.
I truly believe that the results you can get by practicing are as close to magic as you can get. But you have to do it. You have to practice. It might even be fun. Perhaps not every day you do it. Some days will be frustrating, some days you won’t feel like it, some days you would rather do anything than press play on your voice memo from you lesson. But…then one day…one day you will be hit that note that was always just out of reach. One day you will sing that song the way you always wanted to. It may take a month, or a year, but the joy of singing that follows, well, I think that is like magic.
