Coaching Tips

 

  • Song:
    Compose a song that allows you to be exhibited at your best. http://goo.gl/aRpr5x
  • Sound Quality:
    Sometimes it is better to record your vocals and video separately. Then put them together with an editing tool. http://youtu.be/A3ypVoN4NVM
  • 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
  • Lighting:
    Be sure you have adequate lighting in front of you. Too much can wash you out. Too little could be to dark http://youtu.be/7EWEPXHp8u0
  • 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.
  • 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
  • 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!! https://youtu.be/cfOa1a8hYP8
  • Full shot video:
    If you’re dancing and performing, a full shot of your whole body is a must, the viewer wants to see you. In this shot you may not be able to record your vocals at the same time you dance, so you may need to do it separately. https://youtu.be/z3U7Juep6lw
