Do you consider yourself a little better than a bathroom singer? Ever thought of taking up singing as a profession but not yet sure whether you want to go for it or not?
If there is one profession that sounds like a lot of fun (listen to those peppy numbers and you will know what we mean), it is definitely singing – where you get to show your talent and enjoy as you work. Of course, the name and fame that you get, and the opportunity to work with big and talented names, is also a plus.
But if you thought becoming a singer is a walk in the park, there’s a lot of hard work you need to get ready for.
Sona Jadhav is a popular classical and Sufi music singer who has been singing for more than 20 years now. She has done more than 700 shows within the country and abroad and won various awards for her talent.
What If You Did Not Learn Singing As A Child?
Sona Jadhav says that she did not learn classical singing as a child, but yes, for those who learn from childhood, it definitely gives that extra edge when you make an entry in the industry. However, if you decided to take up singing in your adult years, you can still do it.
It’s Important To Strengthen Your Classical Base
Classical singing can teach you discipline, and if you can master this, it can help you in learning other forms too. Also, it will make it easier for you to pick up other forms of singing easily if you have a strong classical base.
Practice And Practice
Being a singer is not just about singing when you have a show, or when you are recording. Sona says she practices for one and a half to two hours every day. This will also ensure that you are ready for any sudden auditions that come up. Hard work is the only way to achieve what you have set out for.
Remember These Tips
Sona says that if you want to enter the industry, then the main mantra is that you have to work hard, keep learning and practice the art as much as you can.
Even though it may look all glamorous and easy from the outside, there is a lot of dedication, hard work and erratic hours that go into the making of a singer.
