Description:


This tutorial is all about singing in your signature style. We’re going to use Auld Lang Syne to practice, since a lot of you already know it, and it’s a pretty simple melody that we can make our own! 
 
In part 1, we’ll learn the classic version and work on a healthy, resonant tone, which is the foundation for classical and choral singing. In part 2, we’ll use a more contemporary tone and practice our pop and r&b stylization. And in part 3, we’ll explore yet another style of singing with jazz. Within each video, I’ll cover a few essentials for singing in that style, and you’ll get plenty of time to sing, sometimes along with me and sometimes with piano. 
 
Join me for a quick warmup, as this tutorial skips exercises in favor of more song work.
