Talent Competitions – Developing Children’s Vocals

Ways in which talent competitions can be used to help a child’s development.

Talent Competitions – Developing Children’s Vocals: Many singers choose to enter talent competitions as a way of getting noticed in the industry or for exposure to a wider audience. They can be a strong way to develop as a singer; here are some benefits of entering talent competitions.

Developing Children’s with Talent Competitions

Performance Experience

Singers can use talent competitions as a way of gaining more experience in the music industry and performing on stage. Without any experience it’s difficult for a singer to gage which songs work well for an audience and which don’t. Performance experience is an invaluable skill to have as a singer as it can often be a way of getting recognised by a wider audience. Talent competitions help to gain experience due to the volume of people you’re potentially performing for.

Receive Constructive Feedback

One of the strongest ways to develop as a singer is to know what you’re doing right and what you’re doing wrong; this is where talent competitions can be really useful. During the process of a talent competition singers are given feedback on how the performance went. Singers can use this feedback to work on their performance and their vocals. It’s wise to take this feedback on board as the judges will have experience and knowledge in the industry.

Benefits of Talent Competitions


When acts get to the level that they really impress they will then start to be asked to perform at other gigs and events, which are great opportunities for further exposure. Lucy Spraggan for example was asked by several festivals to perform as a result of her Open Mic UK show performances.

Building a Fan Base

Performing well and impressing within a talent competition will help build your fan base. Audience members will take your details and find you on the internet; so make sure you are easy to find on the internet!

Industry Exposure

A talent competition is often a chance for industry professionals to see you performing and hear your voice. Talent competitions are becoming more and more popular, people running the shows have had the opportunity to invite industry professionals to judge for the shows. It may only take an A&R from a record label to see a singer perform to want to learn more about them. Sometimes all it takes is the right person to attend a talent competition to give you the opportunity to become a success in the music industry.
