I tell my students that singing is 90% mental! So many people come to me holding on to their vocal limitations, or what they perceive as their vocal limitations, saying 'I can't sing high', or 'I'm not a solo singer' or 'I'm terrified to sing in front of an audience'. In making those statements they are reinforcing that belief. That limited view has become their reality! Even though they don't know it, their cellular memory is programmed with 'I can't' sing high' etc.; based on suggestions given to them long ago by someone else. When we're young, and haven't yet formed a strong self-image, the comments and suggestions of others (usually negative) become our reality. As we grow, those thoughts of limitation become an ingrained part of our brain chemistry and forge strong neural pathways because we play them over and over in our head!
My method, The Lawrence Vocal System works on that mental and emotional level to bring to consciousness those faulty beliefs, and get rid of them once and for all. When my students learn correct vocal skills they begin to see that those limitations they held on to are based on faulty information, and with my support, they begin to forge new neural pathways that are based on correct information! Their confidence soars, and they're able to sing beyond their wildest imaginations! They've created a new belief system for themselves, that is positively reinforced every time they sing!
