The Three-Day Rule: Performance Tips for Singers

Cari Cole, CEO/Founder of CCVM: Label w/o Walls, singer/songwriter, and celebrity vocal coach of Grammy winners, recently published a list of tips and hacks for singers. It is designed to help artists get their vocal cords ready before a performance, and many renowned artists swear by it!

March 29th, 2021

The three-day rule is Cari’s magic formula, one she has used with clients over the past three decades. It’s a list of the dos and don’ts you should follow for three days before a show to ensure a solid vocal performance. Once you follow the three-day rule, you’ll never look back! 

  1. Drink eight to 10 glasses of water a day
  2. Eat extra fruits and veggies
  3. Eat lightly the day before and the day of your performance
  4. Gargle with warm saltwater
  5. Clear nasal congestion
  6. Drink organic Throat Coat tea daily
  7. Skip the dairy
  8. Lay off the caffeine
  9. Stay away from foods that cause acid reflux (e.g., sodas, citrus fruits, chocolate, caffeine, tomatoes)
  10. Avoid spicy foods — they tend to cause problems with high notes, and shifting registers will be bumpy
  11. Avoid eating late as it causes acid reflux regardless of what food you eat! Leave three hours after eating before bedtime
  12. Do not take antihistamines — if you suffer from allergies, get tested and get on a treatment that doesn’t include antihistamines.
  13. Avoid alcohol — especially hard liquors!
  14. Don’t smoke! And Stay away from second-hand smoke three days before a performance
  15. Get eight to 10 hours of sleep every night
  16. Cure a hoarse voice using “Roxalia,” a homeopathic remedy that reduces the vocal folds’ swelling. Take it for three days before and the day of singing
  17. Steam with four to five drops of essential oils of lavender and eucalyptus (use pure and organic essential oils) in a pot of water for 10 minutes each day

Do you have any other tips and tricks to add to Cari’s list? Please share them with us!

I love how Marcos lets me learn so many songs, not just one! I like how he gives me compliments. It’s really fun when Marcos does the bass clef with the left hand and I get to make up my own song that goes with it for a warm up. It’s fun because I get to make up my own songs. I love the sound of the piano!

I really like that we get to pick what songs we want to learn in Marcos’s guitar class. I also love that he is compassionate and lets us progress at our own pace. Marcos knows EVERYTHING about instruments, and I’m glad he can share some of it with me. I’m glad that I get to learn how to read, write, and play music for the guitar. It is a lot of fun when Marcos and I play the guitar together!

I highly recommend 123 Rock to anyone looking for a music teacher!

Both of my children love their music lessons with Marcos. They look forward to their music lessons each week and come home eager to practice their new pieces. I especially love that he teaches them to compose their own pieces and inspires their musical creativity. Marcos is always positive and encouraging with my children, and he has a knack for bringing out their best. I highly recommend 123 Rock to anyone looking for a music teacher!
