If the voice can be delivered, then leadership qualities and a personal inner core should be present by default.

If by nature you have talent, hearing and a wonderful voice – this is excellent! But this does not mean that vocal lessons are not needed. If you want to practice vocals professionally, it is very important to find a good teacher.
It will determine your type, range of voice and help you master the basics of vocals. This is followed by a long, hard work on voice production and the development of proper breathing skills.

It is important that he has perfect control of his voice. Feel free to ask him to sing for you. A good vocal teacher should develop an individual training program for you.
Ask the teacher about the successes and achievements of former students. Read reviews about the teacher

For example, renting a studio on average costs 1500-3000 rubles per hour. That is, to record your composition, you need 10,000-15,000 rubles at least.
Another effective way to increase your popularity is to promote yourself on social networks. Upload videos with the performance of your songs, post vines or tell about yourself in stories.
In general, attract as much audience attention to yourself as possible. Try not to pay attention to haters’ malicious and offensive comments. They’re just jealous.

In many ways, the success of the singer will depend on the professionalism of the producer. Often, many “producers” do not always understand the principles of working and doing business.
Therefore, take your time with the choice and look at the results of their work — were their wards successful, how long has the mentor been producing?
To find a producer:
- Send your songs to producer websites and record labels.
- Contact the production center.
- Perform more often at concerts, auditions and various events to shine and make yourself known.

My success is a combination of circumstances.
It all started with the fact that I got into the group “St. Petersburg”. And it started: television, concerts, tours, filming, broadcasts, fans.
After that, I signed a contract with the hard rock band Reds’cool and continued my career, recording a very good, in my opinion, album Bad Story with American producer Michael Vaganer (sound producer of Skid Raw, Metallica and so on).
I don’t think there was anything particularly difficult for me in vocals. I’ve always liked what I’ve done and am doing. When a person does what he loves, difficulties do not seem complicated — they are interesting.
Now I am engaged in teaching vocal and stage skills — I think this is my new beginning and a new career. I’m interested in teaching people what I can do. I want to give some advice to aspiring singers.

I can’t call myself a singer, even though I have my own hit “All women are like women, and my goddess” (more than 35,000,000 views on YouTube). I never sang much, but if I did it, it was only when my soul was singing or for fun.
To start my career as an artist, I spent 2 years thinking how to make the coolest clip in the world out of nothing, and at the same time not spend a penny. And I came up with it — the clip is called “Eurovision“. But it took a long time before my video won the film festival at the Cinema House. One of the main music critics of the country, Artemy Troitsky, said about the video:
“This is how modern youth should shoot their music videos in order to enter the history of art.” I also participated in various auditions, shows and TV projects, but without success.

I became a producer, songwriter, singer myself. Marina Tabrisova
I’ve been singing since early childhood, as long as I can remember. When I didn’t pronounce the letters yet, I was already singing and arranging concerts for adults.
My creativity started 6 years ago when I wrote my first song. I gave it to another singer to perform, but I didn’t like the way she sang. Then I got up to the microphone and sang it myself.
I published the first song on the Internet on YouTube and Facebook. I was noticed right away. And then it went-it went. I released songs and poems one after another. Posted them online. People shared my creativity, attracted their friends to my songs.
If I had used targeted advertising then, everything would have been much faster, and it took me 6 years to promote and develop.
I turned to famous people in Moscow for help in my career. But they were not interested in a person who writes songs himself, who has his own recording studio.
As one producer told me: “You have everything of your own. You can’t sell a song, record it in a studio and take money for it.”
I was offered to give up my original songs, to be silent for six months, not to stick out with my material anywhere, so that people would forget about me. And then I had to show up with this producer’s songs and sing only his material, paying him for it.
I had already released my first album “YOU and Me”. There was an established audience of my fans who followed my work, loved my songs and poems. How could I betray them? Therefore, I decided that I would never ask for help and support again.
I started doing everything myself. She became a producer, songwriter and singer herself. I realized that you don’t have to wait for a wizard uncle to come and make your career for you. It probably happened to someone, but not to me.
I got everything with difficulty. Gradually, people began to appear in my life, helping me, who do their work professionally and I work with them within the framework of the Marina Tabri project.
