I’ve been reflecting lately on my inability to sing! I can sing amongst others as long as I can’t hear myself but I can’t imagine standing up on a stage to sing a song! Over the many years I’ve been a musician I’ve stood on lots of stages however opening my mouth to sing with no instrument for protection is a really scary thought. (When I say scary I really mean terrifying! )
I would like to sing though. Watching our Scotland Sings project grow makes me want to sing. Also I feel if I’m talking about and promoting Scotland Sings and someone says to me – “sing us a song then” I should be able to do something! I have a bought a book on singing techniques and I did speak to the fantastic Christine Kydd about getting some lessons a while back but I failed to carry it through.
Maybe this is the year I learn to sing. I’ll report back. Any suggestions for me?
