On the surface, a cappella might seem like one of the simplest forms of music—there are no instruments required, and it’s an art frequently practiced by non-professional groups. But then there’s tuning, song selection, vocal percussion, choreography, transitions, choices in attire--when did a cappella get so convoluted? In Simply A Cappella, we discuss ways of stripping down complications and getting back to the core of a cappella. This is not advice for winning competitions or perfecting recordings; it’s advice for reminding yourself why you love to sing in the first place.
When so many of us reflect on our lives, we find that the choices we've made, the actions we've taken have been dictated less by what we want and desire, and more by what we fear and seek to avoid. Whether it's fear of failure, fear of the unknown, or fear of heights, we let these feelings keep us from experimenting or from reaching our full potential.
