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.

The dos and don’ts during a Jam Session – The One Voice of Don Cabrera

I’m so excited to share Don Cabrera’s story. We met during the Charice and Lea Salonga concerts.

Tina Bangel with Troy Laureta, Martin Serra, Dominic Cabrera and Daniel March

I guess the aim of this is to shed light on how to build working relationships as a musician or performer.  I see a common thread in successful musicians, that it’s all about the people you surrounded yourself with, not only was Don very talented but he worked on his craft and developed strong relationships over time with people.

In this interview we focus on the idea of how important networking is and creating a community so together we work to lift each other up.

That is why he created the West Sessions – a Jam night which will be held on the 18th of May, 2016 at the Blacktown Arts Centre.  Doors open at 6pm.

He chats about the dos and don’ts during a Jam session.  We dive into his musical upbringing, how he motivates himself, his mentors and his vision for the future.

Dominic is one of Australia’s top drummers and is an in demand session musician from Sydney. He works with Sony Music Australia, Warner Music Australia and has performed with artists such as:

Cyrus
Tim Omaji (Timomatic)
Guy Sebastian
Jessica Mauboy
Delta Goodrem
Samantha Jade
Nathaniel
Justice Crew
Rob Mills
Stan Walker
Taylor Henderson
Reigan Derry

-International-

Jessie J
Nico & Vinz
Josh Groban
Benji Madden
Lea Salonga
Aston Merrygold
Charice
Gungor

Dom regularly appears in television shows and features including X-Factor, The Voice, The ARIA Awards, Young Talent Time, The Morning Show, The Today Show, Sunrise & Mornings. He teaches privately, upon request, and has hosted popular collaborative jam sessions/residencies, where Sydney’s creative and performing arts community are of constant attendance.

Dom’s first encounter with playing the drums was by getting in trouble with his primary school teacher while banging beats on his little school desk as a child, back in the Philippines. The teacher saw the potential and talent behind the energetic troublesome boy and cultivated it by letting him share his gift, playing a solo marching snare piece for the annual school festival that year. That ignited a flame and passion that would never be extinguished.

Having started with the guitar at the age of 9 and the bass after moving to Australia at the age of 13, Dom has always been exposed to music of all styles, growing up and coming from a family of musicians. He gained experience throughout his teens playing for his youth group all around Australia. These years of being self-taught were very crucial to him, allowing him to find and harness his natural strengths as a musician and discovering his own style, voice and character. Dom would play anything and everything by ear when he listened to the radio/TV, while keeping a special place in his heart for melodic rock.

After being the most prized all-around musician in his high school, Dom finally found home in the drums once again, deciding to make it his full-time instrument. The movement, physicality, style, raw expression, musicality.. everything about the craft made him fall in love with the art of drumming.

Dominic was offered a Bachelor of Music course at the Australian Institute of Music despite not having his Higher School Certificate. During the years of studying and gigging, he has toured, performed and recorded with some of Australia’s leading and upcoming talents. He has learnt from some of the world’s best musician educators and his studies and exploration has led him to finding a deep passion for experimental music.

Dcd is available for private lessons and is currently regularly playing with Cyrus, SSJ & Jeremy Gregory.

He is proudly endorsed by Sonor Drums, UFiP Cymbals & Silverfox Drumticks.

A couple of years ago, Don had a heavy feeling of incompletion and couldn’t shake it off. He had made a career out of playing music in the “city scene” but it felt selfish and distant from the people who raised and nurtured me in the arts. He missed his peers who mentored him and had the same passion for music, without ANY money or politics involved.. Just for the pure love of it.
Don and his friends have the opportunity to give back, reconnect, (hopefully) inspire, and just have a fun old time sharing music with anyone and everyone; the youth groups, the churches, the schools and multicultural families.

“After all, some of the heaviest mf’s come from the west 😉  Please join us for some nights of good vibes and let’s make the scene back home alive again 😉 The West Sessions.” Says Don!

So tell me your go to song during a Jam session?  What insights did you get from Don?

See you at the Jam! Tina
