While for many people, this time of year is about relaxing with family and reflecting, I know that for many singers it is audition season, and multiple solo singing jobs. With all of the anxiety and stress that this can bring, allow yourself time to reflect upon what the past year has brought you.
Your year will have undoubtedly brought accomplishment.
it might have been something as obvious as securing a manager, landing a big contract, winning a competition, being accepted into a grad program or training program OR it might be something more subtle like finally nailing down a tricky aria that now feels ready for audition, tackled Russian successfully so your range of audition pieces is expanded, found just the right teacher or coach, etc...
Whatever the accomplishment this year, allow that to be a counterbalance to the stress of auditoning, singing Messiah when you have a cold, or any of the other stressors singers have!
I hope that the new year will arrive finding you refreshed to jump back into this wonderful thing we call singing!
