A Singing Space that Works

It may seem trivial in comparison to finding your next performance opportunity or rehearsing your next song, but creating a space to sing that inspires and feels comfortable is worth the effort. 

Here are a few things you can do to your rehearsal space, whether it is an entire room, or just a corner of your bedroom. 

  1. Have an image visible that inspires you. It could be a photo, a painting, or an inspiring quote.
  2. Tidy up. Even if you like a little clutter, make sure the clutter is clean and dust-free.
  3. Add an item or a picture that reminds you of a performance of yours that you are proud of.
  4. Make it comfy!  Keep a warm sweater, fan or a cushion to sit on in your practice space.
  5. Add or remove acoustic absorption. Soft surfaces absorb sound, which can help you bother your neighbors less! Reflective surfaces can help you hear the reverberations of your own voice, which can be nice too. Make adjustments to suit your needs.

Here is something that inspires me – I always keep it nearby wherever I am working:
