An Overnight Success?


A major dilemma I face with some students is that they come to me for singing lessons expecting that in a short time, maybe six months or even less. they will be on stage wowing them at a show like “The Voice” or landing that dream role in a major stage musical.  This however is an unrealistic expectation.

With most performers  you rarely hear about the months and years of hard work behind the scenes. You rarely hear about the major catastrophes followed by major miracles that brought about their success. You rarely hear about the hours and hours of grind.

If you don’t have realistic expectations, you can quickly get into the wrong state of mind. You’ll be thinking that to be a success in music you should be a star on stage in just months. Then you’ll give up way too soon.

This notion of overnight success is an urban legend, and very misleading. If you’re starting something new, expect a long and challenging journey. They say 10,000 hours to become an expert. If your worked on your skills for one hour a day that will take 27 years. That starts to put things into perspective, doesn’t it?

But that’s no excuse to move slowly. Many singers think they can achieve fame and stardom without the practice.  Put in the practice EVERY DAY and you will see significant improvement fairly quickly.

Usually what brings about an “overnight success” is that the person is willing to persist until they achieve the success they desire. This is key in achieving the results you want.
