6 Secrets To Unlocking Your Child’s Talent

6 Secrets To Unlocking Your Child’s Talent

Girl singing with a micCould your child be the next American Idol? The next American president? Perhaps.

Daniel Coyle, author of the bestselling book, The Talent Code, says you can up a child’s chances immensely by understanding one key thing: greatness isn’t born, it’s grown.

Coyle spent two years bouncing between nine of the world’s greatest talent hotbeds—tiny, magical places that produce huge numbers of world-class performers in sports, art, music, and math. And what he found is that parents have been sold an incorrect picture as to how genius happens. Immense talent isn’t written into kids’ DNA, Coyle says, it’s the result of a distinctive and powerful pattern, a pattern that combines three elemental forces: targeted methods of practicing, specific methods of motivating, and coaching.

How kids practice, how they deal with failure, how they get praised

How to Motivate Your Child to Practice

Among the numerous challenges that parents face in handling children’s music lessons (choosing the instrument, finding a good teacher, etc.), getting kids to practice is the most daunting of all. The severity of the problem and the importance of practice make it hard to believe that there are so few articles addressing this. What’s more, parents and music teachers often resort to the failed tactics they remember from childhood in desperate attempts to motivate kids to practice.

● If you rely on your voice to get you through your daily activities, taking care of your voice can be
just as important.

Vocal Coach vs. Voice Instruction

A Vocal Coach is generally hired to help a singer or vocalist learn a specific style. For instance if the singer has sung country music all their life and they want to transfer over to a more pop style. Or if a singer would like to explore more difficult areas of the current vocal style they sing such as gospel / pop vocal runs. Vocal Coaching is great for showing a singer how to improve what they currently are doing and also highlight any song to showcase your vocal range and vocal qualities. Vocal coaching is also wonderful if you are preparing for an audition, a performance or a recording project. It helps to have a trained musician critique and highlight your best vocals.
