Have you ever thought about your singing goals? Not sure what exactly goals you should have? We list some singing goal examples below along with an example of my own 2021 singing goals, too!
What exactly is a vision or action board?
Put simply: it’s a visualization board that helps you manifest your own specific goals. Many people find themselves putting their goals on paper because seeing it in a visual format can actually help you achieve them — and there is plenty research to back it up! Beyond that, it’s a fun creative activity that allows you to reflect on what you’ve achieved and what you still want to.
How Do You Set Goals for Singing? What are Singing Goal Examples?
There are so many ways to set goals for your singing, but let’s consider different singing goal examples based on your experience level.
For the person singing just for fun, I would ask questions like:
- What are you hoping to achieve in your lessons?
- Do you want to master a particular song? Is it for a specific event or special occasion?
- Are you hoping to learn better expression, or to have more confidence in yourself?
- Are you hoping to stretch in new and different ways or are you trying to keep your chin up through in a pandemic?
For the more serious singer, I would ask questions like:
- Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
- What are you hoping to achieve vocally in the next 6 months?
- Do you want to write your own songs or just sing covers?
- Do you want to record demo’s of your work for your EPK?
- Do have a clear idea on where it is you are going & what sets you a part from any other singer out there?
Then I would suggest some goals such as:
Sing every day for 1 hour, in that hour clearly mark out your breathing time, scale time and song time. Focusing on what your teacher/mentor suggests you work on for that week be it refining your technique or mastering your foundation. Breath support, diaphragmatic engagement & vowel Formation. Build your vocal fitness which comes with consistent daily training.
Other goals could be: Write an original song or 2, Record song in studio as a demo. Join a distribution platform and promote said link of song along all platforms to get your song out there. There are so many opportunities and my advice would be to go and get ‘em….don’t wait for anyone because you could end up waiting forever.
Vision Board Tips:
- To make your vision board work, put it somewhere you can see it. Save it to your desktop, phone or print it out to place above your work desk.
- Take a good look daily, or as much as possible. The key is to look at it as often as possible and be mindful of your vision board throughout your day!
- Don’t be afraid to make updates!! Your board will save to your free Canva account and you can always adjust and swap out imagery that no longer resonates with you.
