Musician’s Discipline &  Commandments

 

Discipline is doing what is commanded according to an area of assignment over what is expected, available, demanded, convenient or desired per time.

There are two broad categories of commandments namely:

 

  1. Individual/ Peculiar Commandments

An instruction/ command specifically given to you God to protect your gifting, calling and peculiar assignment. Some of these commandments may not be detrimental to other people, but it will destroy you and the gifting you have received faster than any virus.

Whenever you are locked between Individual Commandment and General Commandment, the individual one should take precedence. Know that the day you die, the Ministry still continues, but your part of that ministry has ended. Someone else will be raised God to take over from you or take after you.

Judges 13:3-5  And the angel of the LORD appeared unto the woman, and said unto her, Behold now, thou art barren, and bearest not: but thou shalt conceive, and bear a son. Now therefore beware, I pray thee, and drink not wine nor strong drink, and eat not any unclean thing: For, lo, thou shalt conceive, and bear a son; and no razor shall come on his head: for the child shall be a Nazarite unto God from the womb: and he shall begin to deliver Israel out of the hand of the Philistines.

 

2. General Commandments:

These are instructions given to everybody who is in your field or Ministry as you. Some of these General Commandments include but are not limited to:

Breath Control: The conscious control of one’s inhale and exhale of air is another crucial factor to be considered. The difference in distance that can be covered between a horse and a dog is most times influenced their breathing habit. The Horse during a race exhales only through its nostrils but a dog exhales through its mouth. This accounts for why most Athletes are taught never to breathe through their mouth even after stressful exercises, let alone during competitions. The rate and frequency at which the individual either gasps for breath or releases it, contributes to the pitches they can cover and the duration they can hold it for. The following are a few helpful tips to breath control:

a. Always free your air ways and air waves.

b. Deliberately hold/release your breath for longer duration.

c. Never breathe through your mouth even after rigorous exercises.

d. Increase the speed/frequency of your inhaling and exhaling of air.

e. Food Intake {Edibles}: The kind and class of food a singer take can destroy the vocal pitch. Irrespective of how many years it has either been trained for, the DNA, or the exercise of breath control adopted. Once this area is violated, it dampens and affects the whole process the singer has been building. Though the effect of this varies from singer to singer, geographical location and weather, yet it still has its overall effect on the supposed optimum performance of the singer’s voice.

f. Avoid extremely cold drinks. The voice is like a plastic that expands in the presence of heat and contrasts in cold.

g. Reduce your intake of fatty/ oily food.

h. Avoid using menthol on your voice. Cough, catarrh and gobs of mucous are often caused primarily destroyed white blood cells and tissues due to excess stress or infection on the system.

i. Take lots of fruits and warm water. Amongs the natural fruits and food nutrient to be taken are banana and honey.

i. Avoid eating from 2 hours before rehearsals or a singing performance. The abdomen that supports the release of air used up for abdominal singing, also occupies space when filled with undigested food.

j. Avoid caffeine: apart from the danger caffeine has generally to health, it destroys the singing voice as it makes it very dry and irritable.

 

  • k. Vocal Strain: Certain professions that most people involve in demands the use of the voice for a greater part of the day. Some persons are advised to do vocal warm-up before engaging in such activities daily, however good this advice is, it only help manage the stress to an extent but doesn’t erode it. Thus avoiding these professions and jobs help to protect and enhance your musical performance and career.

l. Vocal Warm-up: Every singer is expected to vocal warm-up in the morning and before singing starts in the day. This helps to heat up your thorax which would have been shrunk the cold of the night or weather of the day. It frees the air ways and aids good vocal control.
