Thanks for the replies, much appreciated.
As for the level of her talent, she's not looking to be the next celeb anytime soon, she just loves singing but wants to get better. She is the first
to admit that she isn't star quality, but she also doesn't want to go down that road at the moment. She just wants to sing better. Thats wny i am
after tips for a better performance.
As has been said though, she is only 14 so time is on her side if she does ever want to expand on her hobby.
The "putting more feeling into it" is something that has come up before, i think there are a couple of reasons for this. One, her confidence. Two,
some of these songs, she doesn't know off by heart, so she is reading the lyrics or chords as she sings and plays. That makes for a more wooden
performance i'd imagine. So knowing her material better is something to work on.
I'm getting her out and about to experience more different types of live music, not just typical kids pop music, but all genres and instruments
played by all ages.
To be honest, she has blossomed through her music, and it has given her an interest that takes up a lot of her spare time at the moment, so whether
she is good or not, i'm not going to discourage her. She's a girl who has had confidence issues for a long time, so i'm going to help her get over
that through her singing if i can. It's getting there, baby steps and all that.
Thanks again for the constructive advice.
