How to create a home studio on a budget

I’ve been asked how to create a home studio on a budget or if you are just starting out. I’d love to share with you 5 simple products to get you started.

Now would be the perfect time to stay creative and productive during this Covid19 season. Staying positive and hopeful has it’s benefits:

  • You can express yourself and release any pent up negative or positive emotions.
  • You can be creative.
  • You can create that passion project you have always dreamed of.
  • You can serve people who need to hear your voice and work , giving them inspiration.

I understand that you may find yourself frustrated, wanting to cry, angry and a whole other depths of emotions. Allow yourself and others to go through their own journey of emotions. Once you are aware of your emotions, once you accept it, allow yourself to move through the motions and aim to look to a positive future.

Being creative through singing, songwriting or recording will give you a sense of purpose. It will see you through this lockdown in a productive yet therapeutic way.

Here are a few items I would recommend to set up your home studio on a budget.

1.BLUE YETI MICROPHONE

Perfect for vocals, musical instruments, podcasting, voiceovers, interviews, field recordings, conference calls. I love this because you can just plug it in via your USB outlet, into your laptop or computer, link it to Garageband and record your podcast or song! Simple! Anyone can do it!

Blue Yeti USB Microphone – Blackout

2. POP FILTER

A pop filter, pop shield or pop screen is a noise protection filter for microphones, typically used in a recording studio. It serves to reduce or eliminate popping sounds caused by the mechanical impact of fast-moving air on the microphone during recorded speech and singing.

Neewer Professional Microphone Pop Filter Mask Shield Compatible with Blue Yeti and Any Other Microphone, Dual Layered Wind Pop Screen With A Flexible 360 Degree Gooseneck Clip Stabilizing Arm

3. MICROPHONE STAND

I would recommend 2 stands. One for your Microphone and the other for the Isolation shield.

K & M Microphone Stand w/telescopic boom arm

4. ISOLATION SHIELD

This shield eliminates Noise Interference. It’s used to reduce ambient noise, create a closer, drier, more controlled vocal or instrument recording in many situations.

Neewer NW-5 Foldable Adjustable Portable Sound Absorbing Vocal Recording Panel, Aluminum Acoustic Isolation Microphone Shield with High-Density Foam, Non-Slip Feet for Stand Mount or Desktop Use

5. HEADPHONES

With headphones, you can hear yourself through the headphones while singing into the microphone. This allows you to adjust your voice accordingly if needed.

Sony MDR-ZX110/BCE On-ear Headphones, Black

These 5 items are the foundations to create your home studio on a budget, you can purchase them straight away via my amazon affiliate links.

Tell me in the comments below which product you would love to purchase.

Please like, comment and share this post with someone who would love to get their home studio started.

Be safe and well xx

Ep 040 Tips to nourish your body featuring Nourish with Renata

Welcome to another episode of One Voice can change the world podcast. I’m sorry I have been out of action these past few weeks.  With the recent changes we are seeing the world today due to COVID19 I have had to make a few changes and decisions with my business as well as my family life/

We are not on lockdown fully yet here is Australia.  Schools are still open but I have decided to keep my son home from school.  My husband who is also a school teacher  has taken leave because of his asthma and heart condition and is now conducting lessons online. 

Everything is slowly shutting down.

Honestly, these are scary times but I’m happy I still can teach via zoom and online and provide people with Singing resources via my 6 week Singing Mastery -The One Voice method.

I read something last night which I loved:

“Corona has proved that everything around us is temporary . Things our lives revolved around…work, gym, malls, movies society have all gone for a toss as we are learning to live without them.  It has taught us that in the end, it’s your own home and family that keep you safe.”

That’s why my next guest’s work is so important. 

My guest today is my wonderful friend Renata Trebing.  We met virtually during Lewis Howes School of Greatness community 3 years ago.  We finally met face to face during the Summit of Greatness in Ohio 2 years ago. 

I’m so grateful for her friendship over the years and we are still in contact with each other along with 2 other amazing members of our accountability group.

She is the CEO and founder of NourishwithRenata.com, the healthy food blog. She is passionate about helping people forget the stereotypes that healthy food is boring and bland… and discover how delicious healthy food should be! Renata shares quick and healthy recipes that the whole family will love, through her blog and YouTube channel.

Renata is also the COO and Nutrition Coach for Mod3rn Fitness. She guides clients to nourish their bodies in a holistic way, that is sustainable for their lifestyles and for their lifetime. 

Renata shares her 5 tips to help nourish your body.

This episode was so fun.  We chat about music and singing as well as the importance of getting out of your own way so your voice can be heard.  This can apply to your singing voice and also the work that you do!

Final song: Our cafe

Happy holidays to you! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas holiday with your loved ones!

There are 3 more days until 2020!

What a year it has been for me and my family. As some of you know I have recently had a major operation. Unfortunately this year has been difficult health wise. I have had to stop my gigs because I wasn’t fit enough to sing.

I had fibroids in my uterus which had to be removed. These are normally non cancerous growth. Luckily mine fell in that category. It was the best Christmas present my family and I received.

Because my fibroid was huge it affected my breathing for singing also my iron levels were low. So I had less energy and constantly fatigued. Even climbing the stairs gave me heart palpitations.

After 4 hours of surgery three blood transfusions I completed my hysterectomy procedure – they removed my uterus along with the fibroid growth. It was a whopping 10kg and 30cm growth.

Because if the vertical cut done on my stomach I now need to build up my singing voice and muscles again.

My aim for 2020 is nourish my body and mind so I can be in tip top condition  for my gig in April.

I’ll be singing backing vocals for Sharon Cuneta during her 40th celebration in the music industry.

If you don’t know who Sharon Cuneta is, she is a Filipino singer, actress & television host. Known as one of the most prominent showbiz icons in the Philippines.

I have created a Thriving Singers planner to help me get into peak condition for then and the future.  You can use it to help you get  into top shape as a singer too!

Today’s podcast will go through the different aspects of this planner and you will be able to download it for free here: https://tinabangel.lpages.co/2020planner/

I didn’t want to overwhelm you with pages and pages of the planner so I have just given it to you as a weekly start. That way you can print it out on the Sunday ready for Monday week 1.

I will be keeping you updated via IG so make sure you follow my stories. We can keep each other accountable.

So let’s get started with the One Voice Thriving Singer planner!  6 weeks of Singing, moving, nourishing and believing.

Being a singer requires you to look after your voice, body, mind and spirit.

So our first page requires you to chart down your week.

Start with week 1 and the date.

Think of 3 goals. These goals are to be short term goals choose something you can achieve within the week also choose a goals that are challenging. Small wins win the race.

Story to banish This may take a while to to realise the story you have been telling yourself. Or it could be a story that you tell yourself all the time and you know is a whole load of BS.An example is I don’t have time to exercise- even if you do 15mins it’s still something. Where in the day can you find 15mins?

How will I move my body?

Movement gets the body and mind started. Physiology makes a huge difference. Do me a favour, try slouching… notice how you feel and what’s running through your mind. Now  stand up in a power pose- as if your Wonder Woman. Try this pose for 2 mins and notice how you feel. The way you carry yourself will make a huge difference.

How I’ll nourish my body?

Maybe you’ve indulged yourself these holidays. For me I have had too much Christmas ham, I could feel the water retention in my body. So my focus will be to not add salt to my food and drink more water. How can you nourish your body. What will you feed it?

What I will believe?

Here you can write down what your positive belief will be. Maybe it’s writing down your visualisation. Maybe you believe you are healthy and fit. Or a confident singer on stage.

Notes 

Write down anything that comes to mind, perhaps how you are feeling? Are you pumped? Are you hopeful?

Timetable:

Each day write down what you plan to focus on –

You can break it up into morning afternoon and evening.

Don’t overwhelm yourself. The idea is to create little wins so you can keep moving forward each day and each week.

Daily planner:

Add your date, circle the day and fill out the week.

I suggest you print these pages out on Sunday and pin on your wall where you can see it every day.

What will you focus on today? You can circle one or more depending on your schedule.

Breathing work? This might include exercises. You can visit my free webinar which has a few breathing activities for you to follow.

https://events.genndi.com/channel/Singingmastery

Performance? This may include watching YouTube footage of your favourite artist so you can gain inspiration.

Vocal can include vocal scales. You may like to focus on scales that build up your strength or perhaps vocal lick.

Exercise:

What exercise have you planned today. Ideally 30mins of movement is beneficial.

Nourish:

Planning the food you will eat the night before or even the week before can be handy. Sunday is normally my meal prep day. I get inspiration from bloggers like Nourish with Renata.

Check her out at this link to see how she meal peeps to stay healthy juggling motherhood and her business.

Normally I chop up my veggies and fruit to save me from doing it during the busy week. I have ready made hummus and veggies for snacks. Nuts are also handy. I have a couple of boiled eggs ready incase I need a pick me up.

I keep myself hydrated with herbal teas and water. It’s a good idea to drink a glass of water at every meal. If you eat 6 small meals a day then that’s 6 glasses taken care of.

Sleep

Depending of your phase in life you will get ample or little sleep. I guess it’s up to you how you feel in the morning. Some people are ok with 6hrs sleep others like to sleep for 8 hours.

Tracking your sleep will help you figure out what’s good for you and how it affects your day.

I normally listen to and evening mediation. It helps me to sleep well and wake up with good intentions.

I also start my morning with a morning mediation – I wake up at 6 and normally stay in bed and listen to a guided mediation.

Things aren’t  always going to fall into place. So maybe you couldn’t  fit in an activity – you have to take notice did you want to do that activity in the first place or do you think you can afford to leave it out and do it for another day.

This planner is not designed to make you feel guilty if you didn’t get to do what you wanted to do. It’s designed to open your mind to intention and inspire you to take little steps.

Those steps will add up and help you create that giant leap.

Affirmation: I have included some affirmations to help you feel positive. Say them

Out loud until you feel it in every part of your body and in every cell.

Lastly

Celebrate! What goals did achieve? What did  you do well? What can you improve on. Remember Nothing is failure- it’s all learning!

Hope this will be fun way to start you new year! I know it’s going to help me.

Ep 036 How to integrate music into your child’s life

This episode was brought to you our One Voice Fiesta Major sponsor:

SG homeloans & Learning Blocks child care centres

Many people ask me “When is a good time for my child to learn music.”

I always say that even while your child is in the womb and from birth surround yourself and your baby with music.

Hans Christian Andersen sums it all up “Where words fail, music speaks”

Tap and rock your baby to the steady beat so they learn to internalize it within their bodies.  This will in turn help with the ability to walk, bounce balls, cut with scissors. 

Here are some ways to help integrate music into your child’s life.

  • Join a structured musical learning class with your child
  • Listen to a variety of quality recorded music at home and while running errands in the car
  • Sing familiar songs or make up your own songs while you play or when working around the house.
  • Take time to listen to all the interesting sounds in your environment – imitate nature sounds while out for a walk.
  • Explore sounds with homemade instruments like pots and pans, spoons, and shakers
  • Create family music making opportunities in which everyone plays along.  Include all your talents from playing the spoons to folk instruments to gathering around the piano.
  • Dance to music from the radio, television, or any other source you enjoy.
  • Use simple props such as scarves, balls and hoops to play movement games.  Add a favourite song.
  • Make music part of your child’s bedtime routine or any routine (bathing, cooking, cleaning) – lullabies are particularly
  • Soothing and calming and provide a time for parent and child bonding.

The bottom line is music and dance – within a fun, loving and nurturing environment – can bring a life long happiness and warm memories in your child’s life.  What a wonderful start to life!

This Episode was brought to you by The Singing Mastery Masterclass

I’m so excited and blessed to have this amazing performer, creator and friend as my guest on my blog.  Sharing valuable and entertaining insights into the music industry as only David can! Worth the listen for any performer.

David Pomeranz is one of the most successful and prolific songwriters and performing artists on the scene today.

In 1999, Pomeranz recorded the CD Born For You – His Best And More, a compilation of past and new love songs that became the 13th best-selling album of all time in the Philippines. 

Pomeranz’s songs include “Tryin’ to Get the Feeling Again” and “The Old Songs”, both recorded by Barry Manilow; and “It’s in Every One of Us”, which was featured in the TV specials John Denver and the Muppets: A Christmas Together and A Muppet Family Christmas, the Dave Clark musical Time, the film Big, and at the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul, Korea.

Ep 033 Being Brave with Marlisa

This episode was brought to you by Singing Mastery Masterclass you can access the free training here:

 http://tinabangel.com/singingmasterymasterclass

This episode is different from our normal podcast structure.  It was a recording of Marlisa’s press conference held in Sydney.

Marlisa dives into the songwriting process and inspiration of her new album I am Brave. 

I ask her the question I ask all my guests “What does One Voice can change the world mean to you?” also she shares why she thinks Filipinos are great at singing and how can budding singers improve their singing voice.

She is later joined with Taylor Henderson and Makisig Morales who will bring another fun dimension to Marlisa’s concert on the 17th of August 2019 held at Blacktown Workers Club brought to you by MENM Productions.

Taylor Henderson, Marlisa, Makisig Morales, Tina Bangel

“At the age of only 15, Marlisa stole hearts all over the world during her journey on The X Factor Australia 2014. With a voice to challenge some of the greatest divas Australia has ever produced, it came as no surprise when this sweet Australian/Filipino teenager was victorious in the finale episode. Both likeable and talented, Marlisa has gone from strength to strength since being crowned the youngest X-Factor Winner in the show’s history. Despite her youth, Marlisa is a seasoned performer.

She began singing at a very young age, and quickly followed up performing at events, charity concerts and eisteddfods, impressing local audiences along the way. “I was actually performing alongside my brother, who plays piano, since I was around three years old. My grandmother said she thought I had a real talent and suggested to my parents that they continue to encourage and support me. From then on I used to perform at birthday parties and Christmas parties, and that led onto charity events and competitions.”

Eager – and destined – to audition for the The X Factor, she was previously held back by the minimum age restriction and waited patiently until she was 14. Within months of her audition she was performing in front of industry giants John Legend and her mentor Ronan Keating in New York, dueting on stage with her idol Jessica Mauboy, and winning Australian audiences over with her adorable and endearing presence.

After signing with Sony Music Australia, Marlisa released new music which immediately topped the charts. Her debut single “Stand By You” was nominated for Song of the Year at the 2015 ARIA Awards and was certified Platinum selling over 70,000 copies. The success of the single was followed up with her self-titled album MARLISA(2014), which debuted at #6 on the ARIA albums chart and was also certified Gold.

In early 2018, Marlisa extended her international presence and signed with Star Music Phils (ABS-CBN) as well as Tarsier Records to join other Kapamilya stars. This was followed by the release of two of her new singles ‘Thank You’ and ‘Steel’ as part of her upcoming album release.”

I have had the honour to work with Marlisa, together with 3 other wonderful singers, Chelsea Castillo (Australia’s got Talent), Bernadette Marquez (All together now) and Mikee De Leon during Sharon Cuneta’s concert at the Evan Theatre, Penrith.
