The benefits of entering music competitions as young singers

Helping Young Singers to Develop

Music competitions can be nerve-wracking for any singer, never mind for a young in-experienced performer.  However, there are many benefits for children that choose to enter music competitions!

Benefits of Music Competitions

Builds Confidence

Entering music competitions can be a good way to help build a child’s confidence. Naturally, they’ll be nervous, but we all thrive when we’re doing something we enjoy, and if you’re a singer then performing on stage to a live audience is a feeling like no other! Everyone gets stage fright, but the more stage experience a performer gets, the better they learn to handle those nerves.  A music competition is a good platform to gain stage experience in a safe professional environment. They will be surrounded by others in the exact same position so there is a great support network for them too.

Gaining Experience

Many children have dreams to become a singer, but the music industry is a difficult place to break into, especially without performance experience. Music competitions give children the chance to gain experience performing in front of an audience and on stage. Performing in front of an audience is a vital experience for any professional singer, so many industry professionals will expect nothing less when looking to sign new talent.

Music Competitions for Young Singers

Developing a Young Singer’s Vocal

With feedback from the music competition judges, you’ll be able to see which parts of the performance are strongest and which bits need a little work. Receiving feedback from music experts who have a wealth of knowledge regarding the singing industry is a vital tool for self-development as a singer.

Getting Exposure

A music competition is often a chance for industry professionals to see you performing. With many competitions inviting A&R’s from record labels, there is a chance that the young singers are given further opportunities as a result of the attendance of these professionals. Sometimes all it takes is the right person to attend a music competition and give you the exposure you need to become a success in the music industry.

There are a number of ways to develop children as an act but music competitions have proved for acts like Birdy and Luke Friend a great resource to improve to the level to be successful.
