I used to be nervous to take on higher notes and my breath control was weak. Through the vocal performance program, I began to work on breath control and do focus on breathing exercises. I gained confidence in my ability to take on higher notes through your constant positive feedback and encouragement. After utilizing the skills you introduced me to I can now get on a stage and take on my performance fully and confidently!
I was searching around for a vocal coach, something I had never pursued before, and came The Indie Artists' Studio. In the program, I was introduced to different tiers of the voice - head voice, mix voice, chest voice, etc., things I never paid conscious attention to previously. I caught on quick how to channel and access these different domains of range and frequency and using them tactfully, thanks to great communication and coaching. The warmups and preparation I took from our time together really has opened me up vocally, and performances are less of a physical strain now and more of an intuitive expression.
Before joining the Social Media and Branding Program, I didn’t have a clear idea of what content to put out, wasn’t aware of how collaborative work makes a difference. Now, I have a clearer idea of what my brand is. I am now aware of how to go about executing it and the types of content to put out. I am currently in the process of working on using the techniques mentioned. It would definitely help me reach out to a wider audience and get gigs, studio work, photo shoots etc. I plan on collaborating as much as I can.
Before joining any of the programs here I was very confused about who I was as an artist and what my brand was, even how to categorize my music. I wasn't posting on my socials nearly as much as I should've been and I really didn't know where to start in order to get to where I wanted to be or even how to clarify what my brand is. Now, I know what social media platforms to focus on and all of my social media platforms visually match now. Overall I was really just able to get a very clear picture of who I am as an artist which has been a HUGE breakthrough.
I decided to join the Indie Artists' Studio because I started doing music by myself and I felt as if I was hitting a wall and this program really helped me expand my view on music while pushing me to perform more and get out of my comfort zone. This program taught me how to properly sponsor my music and build hype over it which lead me to collaborate with an artist all the way in Hong Kong and expanded my circle. If I never took this program I most likely would still be in my room creating things casually instead of building a network for myself out there. I am very thankful for the help and guidance that has been given to me from my coach Jessica. She was there to support me 100% and i appreciate her for that 🙂
The coaches at the Indie Artists' Studio know how to encourage a student and give them confidence. That's really important, because without confidence nobody can sing.
Before we started working together I was confused and not really sure how to handle myself performance and branding-wise. After working with my coach, I got SO much more comfortable on stage than I thought I could be. Jessica taught me to really perform as MYSELF while singing covers or my own original music. I use the techniques I've learned from you almost everyday.
After we worked together, I ended up writing a lot of my original songs and I got a chance to perform my own songs at live shows which was such a great experience and opened up good opportunities. The new song is planned for release very soon!!
