Martin & Sylvia's Audio Advent Calendar – Day 22: "Caroling"

In this Martin & Sylvia's Audio Advent Calendar story, "Caroling," Martin is hesitant about caroling, when he learns that they will be going to a senior living home to sing to the residents. But when they arrive, he is surprised and delighted by what he discovers.

When you are nervous about singing in front of new people or in new places, it can be hard to get excited. Here are some ideas for calming nerves.

  • Practice sing in front of close friends and family first.
  • Visit the place you will be singing in before you actually have to sing there.
  • Visualize yourself singing successfully and bringing joy to those who are listening.
