The Hysterics – Great to see you performing your own song, it had a nice chorus although the first verse was a little immature with the lyrics but you’re still young, click here for more on tips on writing lyrics. Liked the way you lined up with one on guitar and one on keys. Good potential in this group. Try not to let nerves affect you; click here for how to deal with your nerves. Very mature performance.

Meli – Lovely tone to your vocal but going forward look to work on the projection which a good vocal coach will be able to assist you to be even better, click here for the importance of vocal training. Performance wise, you are very static and need to learn to work that stage click here stage performance tips

London Music Competition – Pre-Teen Regional Final Feedback 

Leni Zieglmeier – Great look! Loved your tone and rasp to your vocal, just take with your mic control which needs developing click here for more on microphone techniques for singers and maintaining consistent sound levels. Good expression which really helped to convey the emotion in the song. Really nice song of choice. Make sure the energy doesn’t ever leave the performance, you have buckets of it. 

Beatrice – Don’t be frightened to commit even more to the performance and really come to the front of the stage. Vocally, you have a nice punch to your voice but take care with your breathing and it would be worth you looking at the following article on music dynamics. Good stage presence, nice to see some confidence but make sure you practise the performance, click here for stage performance tips.

Jika – Your personality shone through your performance. Not sure your song choice did you many favours, click here for more on good audition songs. Good to see you use the stage but commit more to the performance. Don’t be frightened to bring the emotion you feel from the song into the performance, click here for tips on how to sing with emotion.

Sirine – Very confident performer! Your image is fantastic. Lovely tone to your vocal but going forward look to work on the projection which a good vocal coach will be able to assist you to be even better, click here for the importance of vocal training. Performance wise you are very static and need to learn to work that stage, click here for stage performance tips. Perform more and you will develop bringing out your personality on stage which will be endearing. 

London Music Competition – TeenStar 2015

Kate Jukes – Nice tone but you need to project more, better mic control will defiantly assist with this click here for advice on microphone techniques for singers. Although you are a little grounded in where you stand on stage because of your guitar, you need to give your performance a little more attention. This performance might have been better if you’d used a backing track and allowed yourself to perform better. 

Ayse – You’ve got such a powerful little voice! Your voice really soars in the upper register. Getting nearer to that mic will really help with your projection to the audience. You sung beautifully but song choice was a very popular and over sung making it hard for you to stand out, click here for good audition songs

Ameya – You look great and your confidence came through quickly after the initial nerves. A very static performance, both in terms of positioning on stage, and in presence and facially. It’s important to show the emotion from the performance in your facial expressions and to incorporate that into your performance, click here for stage performance tips and facial expressions and hand gestures whilst singing
