How To Find Your Singing Style
When you first start out singing, quite often you want to know how to find a sound that is unique to you. That ‘style’ that makes you stand out from all of the other singers out there.
So how do you develop that? How do you find your singing style?
Today I’ll explain how I developed my own style and I have three steps for you that will help you to start working on building your own singing style today.
VOCAL WARM UP SECRETS
Improve your voice, with as little as 10 minutes practice a day
THIS COURSE WILL HELP YOU TO:
- Maintain your voice and keeping your vocal muscles ‘fit’
- Developing consistent practice habits
- Getting the most out of a short practice session
- Learning how to warm up safely, effectively & reducing vocal tension
LISTEN TO A LOT OF NEW MUSIC
You won’t know what music you suit (REALLY suit) until you listen to a lot of new genres, singers and sing along to them as well.
Have a go at singing blues, rock, pop and all the sub genres that go with them to see if you can find a sound that you like.
COPY MANY ARTISTS IN YOUR CURRENT VOCAL NICHE
Once you settle on a genre, find artists that you CAN sing like at your current skill level and copy a few of them. Listen to their phrasing, dynamics and technique and learn from them to begin building your own style.
COMBINE ARTIST AND STYLES
Once your singing abilities and musical knowledge improves, you will find that other vocalists and songs become available to you. You may now be able to reach higher notes, or belt properly, which means you can add a new bunch of singers to your ‘copy me’ list. This will again mould your own sound and you’ll eventually settle on a sound that doesn’t sound like any one influence, but is uniquely your own.

Try this fun articulation exercise for singers. Articulation in singing refers to how clearly you sing the lyrics and so this exercise is particularly beneficial if you tend to mumble.
