GENERAL COACHING TIPS:


  1. Song: Pick a song that allows you to be exhibited at your best. Your favorite song isn’t necessarily the best song for your voice or range. Try different songs, ask for your friends’ critical opinions before you decide on the one. http://goo.gl/aRpr5x

  2. Sound Quality: Sometimes it is better to record your singing and video separately. Then put them together with an editing tool. http://youtu.be/A3ypVoN4NVM

  3. Music: Try not to sing acapella, If you don’t have music to accompany your song, try this http://goo.gl/e9gL7B or http://goo.gl/r5M7NQ

  4. Lighting: Be sure you have adequate lighting in front of you. Too much can wash you out.  Too little could be too dark  http://youtu.be/7EWEPXHp8u0

  5. Physical Background: Try and keep the background simple. Try to sing with your back against a  plain color wall. If possible avoid singing at your desk or in your bedroom. (Or do so in a way where the viewer can’t tell you're in your bedroom!)  We want people to stay focused on you and not your superman bedsheets, even if they are awesome. http://youtu.be/TSYEGMsDs1c

  6. Outfit: Wear properly arranged clothes, remember you want to look like a star. Also be sure that your clothes don’t blend in with the background and that the colors are video friendly. .http://goo.gl/y8gyS0, http://goo.gl/OqfkMu

  7. Movement: Try to dance and perform like a star. If possible don’t record yourself sitting down or on your bed. If you find yourself with no other option, be engaging. Remember practice makes perfect.  Make a dynamic performance & have fun!! http://youtu.be/TSYEGMsDs1c

  8. Full shoot video: If you’re dancing and performing, a full shoot of your whole body is a must, the viewer wants to see you. In this shoot you cannot record your voice at the same time you dance, so you need to do it separately.
