Lari gives insight on becoming a more complete and well-rounded musician by developing the correct mental approach to singing. She shares advice for bringing the correct attitude, style, and substance to your craft.
- This segment of level one…I call mind, or the thinking singer.…So we're talking about this whole musician approach,…mind, body, spirit.…We talked about keeping our bodies healthy…and our instruments health physiologically.…Now we're going to get into…the mental process, the intellectual process…and how that plays into being an excellent vocalist.…
I personally have experienced what I call…chick singer syndrome,…or for guys I think it's called the prima donna syndrome,…which is that little bit of stereotype…or discrimination or prejudice…that gets in play when singers are perceived…to be less than a musician…because they're just singers.…You know that's the stereotype of the rock singer guy…that shows up at rehearsal…and he doesn't really care anything about…what the rest of the players are doing,…he just wants to be the star and sing.…
Or the girl who shows up…and it's all about the gown and the look…and again she doesn't care about the players…or the music being made,…it's just all about being a star.…I'm sure we all know some people that have helped…
