3. How can I over come the nervousness I feel just before I perform?

The nervousness you feel just prior to performing could be for any number of reasons; i.e. poor and inadequate preparation; family/friends or even strangers being in the audience; good adrenaline flow; etc; etc. Feeling nervous is okay.

Use the excitement of the moment to propel a fantastic performance from you, provided that you are completely prepared from adequate rehearsals, both mentally and physically. We have workshops that address this concern.

4. Is it good for your voice to suck on a lemon before singing?

Sucking a lemon for better vocals is a serious "No! - No!"

Doing this will dry out the mucous lining of your vocal cords. Without the body's natural lubrication, your cords could swell, making the vibration you have come to depend on to do certain notes, quite difficult. Smoking basically has the same affect on your vocal cords.

5. How can I copyright a song that I wrote?

Call or visit the Copyright Office in Washington, D.C. for information on "copyrighting" and to order the proper forms. (202) 707-9100.

Until the forms arrive, you can do the "Poor Man's Copyright" (which is legally effective).

Have your song sung on a cassette and place it with the written lyrics in an envelope addressed to you. Bring it to the Post Office and have it sent to yourself by registered mail. When you receive it, do not open it. This dated material and procedure will now serve as your copyright. I strongly suggest that you always keep this envelope sealed (even after you've received your copyrights for the same song from the Copyright Office). The date on this registered material might prove to be quite beneficial for you one day.
