The sweet spot

When I sing a heart-felt song that I’ve written, I want to express all the passion I feel. My singing sometimes gets a little too emotional, as if the lyrics and the music don’t fully communicate the message.

To prevent this, I use the dial back method. In rehearsal I keep singing it over again, each time making it more emotional until it’s clear I’ve gone over the top, then I dial it back a notch. Taking it over the top in rehearsals is a way to discover just where the sweet spot is.
