We have a choice to be “problem” focused or “solution” focused. Fright or fear comes from focusing on problems, real or imagined. If you identify the problem for even a second, then switch to solutions, things often improve right away!
People won't like me. Re-frame the thought to “What can I give to my audience?” or “What can I share with them?” or “How can I help them have a better day?” Perform to individuals with eye contact and share the meaning of the song. Become the actor or better to say, become the character in the song.
What is a carbon credit?
Before we start understanding about carbon credit, it is important to know about carbon emissions, or rightly put, the emissions of carbon dioxide into the environment. Carbon dioxide is one of the most common greenhouse gases that goes up into the atmosphere, along with water vapour, methane, nitrous oxide and ozone. The word “greenhouse” implies that these gases formed a layer that traps heat from the sun, causing a greenhouse effect on the earth surface. These gases will eventually escape into space gradually and this warming of the earth’s surface is important to sustain life.
From 2010-2016, Iris spent a large part of her time to learn business management, funding and consultancy working alongside her husband and partner Raymond Ng in Candle Consulting / Get Funding. She believes that this valuable time in learning about business will be very important in the next stage of her career as she builds ChorusArt Pte Ltd to be the leading edutainment company in Singapore, capable of making a mark on the world stage.
ChorusArt Pte Ltd is the concert promoter for the Vienna Boys Choir event in Singapore from 2018.
In one article previously, we covered a topic about “Speed-Songwriting”. But these three songwriting exercises from this topic are kind of different and they are designed to get you into the flow of writing without thinking.
Your best ideas come from the subconscious, and you can tap into this with regular practice. Remember to do these exercises quickly, spending three minutes on each in rapid fire succession. I set the timer on my handphone. Don’t judge or question ANYTHING you write down. This isn’t a test! The sole purpose is to train your creative thinking to respond on command. For me, personally, I found it more helpful to write with pen and paper, instead of typing. A lot of studies show that your brain responds differently when writing, as opposed to typing.
Most people think of songwriting process as something that would take weeks or even months. Sometimes, yes, the whole production process (including arrangement, recording and mixing) might take a long time but in fact, the songwriting itself is usually a quick process, simply because a song is the emotions, feelings and expressions of the writer about a specific topic in a specific period of time, right? So, all these feelings and expressions should be translated into a song before they are all gone! Then later the artist can go back to it and “polish” them and prepare them for a proper production!
Through the years that I am in this music industry I was lucky enough to meet countless number of talented musicians, composers and songwriters who have these great original material and then there is one huge problem most of them are facing and that's the fact that they mostly have absolutely no clue on what to do with this awesome piece of music in their hands! Well, just like anyone else most of these musicians want to earn enough money for a living from doing what they love to! Who doesn't right?
