As in all forms of music, singers must learn to be good musicians – to be able to listen and reproduce pitches and tones accurately, to read music, and to blend appropriately with other singers.
Additionally, there are five main elements singers work on:
Vowels: Singing is a flow of vowels connected with consonants. Singers learn to form and adjust vowels to produce the best sound in different parts of their vocal range.
Expression: Singers work on developing their musicality and ability to “deliver” a song. This involves many elements, including conveying the meaning of the words, timing, stage presence and gestures, musical and individual style.
