Singing in Bakersfield

Singing can be a lot of fun, and unlike playing a musical instrument, you can do it nearly anytime, anywhere. Listening to the radio and singing in the shower can help to keep you in practice, but if you’re taking singing lessons in Bakersfield, you have many options for finding inspiration, as well. Whether you are the kind of person who likes to hear new music or you want to show off what you’ve learned, you will find plenty of inspiration around town.

Dinner and a Song One of the best ways to work musical inspiration into your schedule is to get out and listen to music while you eat. It gives you time to really pay attention to the music as you enjoy a delicious meal. It is best to switch it up and check out different types of music genres to see which ones make you want to sing.

  1. Sandrini’s has delicious, real Italian cuisine. Every Friday and Saturday is live-music night, and you are sure to find a range of inspiration. From classic hip hop to alternative rock, they keep the atmosphere lively. (http://www.sandrinis.com/)

  2. Buck Owen’s Crystal Palace is more reminiscent of the days when live music was part of the American meal. From pizza and burgers to filet mignon, you can get a memorable meal as you enjoy live music Tuesday through Saturday every week. (http://www.buckowens.com/)

  3. The Mark is fine dining when you want a real night out on the town. With great chefs in the kitchen and smooth jazz playing on the weekend, you will find this to be a very relaxing and inspirational experience. (http://www.atthemark.com/)

Live Music Venues If you want to find inspiration without being stuck in a chair, there are plenty of options for taking in live entertainment in one of Bakersfield’s many venues.

  1. Trout’s & the Blackboard Stages has the best honky-tonk in town. They also have karaoke if you are feeling brave.

  2. Bright House Amphitheatre gives you more of a traditional rock concert feel.

  3. La Movida Nightclub has a cover price, but you will have access to live Latino music and dancing until the wee hours of the morning.

Practical Application There is no denying that getting out and listening to different singers can be inspirational, but if you really want to see how your singing lessons in Bakersfield are paying off, you have to get out there and sing. With more than 60 karaoke locations listed, Bakersfield Karaoke can help you find an environment and location where you feel comfortable getting up and trying out what you have learned in your lessons. If you've talked with singers from some of the restaurants and venues listed above, you can try out some of the tips and tricks they gave you, too! Check out Bakersfield Karaoke's website below: (http://www.bakersfieldkaraoke.com/)

Learning to do anything requires dedication, practice, and inspiration. When you start taking singing lessons in Bakersfield, you are on the right track. You’ll be able to see improvement over time. However, it is listening to other singers and finding the courage to sing in front of others that will really push you to the next level.
