Learn to self-advocate, and hit the high notes of your life!
There should be an instruction book on how to be a professional opera or musical theater singer. On the contrary, singers often need help finding opportunities. As we get older, services become less and less available, and the discouragement can lead to giving up.
The typical scenario does not have to represent you. Stop hitting that brick wall of limitation and map out your career. Learn how to thrive as a mature artist. Use all of your strengths to blend two professions in a way you had never considered, adjust certain rituals to make your days more efficient, and create opportunities for yourself. Mindset coaching and career mapping can set you apart and bring you to a high level of performance.
Although this thoughtful, purposed approach is not usually a typical element in a singer's training portfolio, it can mean the difference between resignation and manifesting your ideal artistic lifestyle.
In addition to her career as an internationally recognized Verdian soprano who regularly performs at the English National Opera, The Royal Opera House, Glyndebourne, Oper d'Lyon, and other major houses throughout the UK and Europe, she is a mindset coach with clients from all over the world. She has helped singers launch international careers by bringing attention to habits and beliefs that may be hindering their success, then building concrete strategies to pave new paths forward.
She combines mindset work and operatic performance to create a sustainable path forward. She founded her opera and mentorship program 'Everybody Can!' in 2015 to provide a platform to encourage and support other artists in recognizing and achieving their visions. She is often casting for her "Over 35 Series," which exists to promote mature singers, providing a platform for their work. She encourages singers to reframe the idea of a 'career' into a lifestyle. We then expand as artists rather than chase a dream, which is the most sustainable way to live your reality as a successful singer.
