There are so many different singing styles and genres out there — how do you keep track of them? What are the best vocal exercises for singers of each genre? Here is the guide !

Often considered the most formal and restrictive of all genres of singing, classical and opera singing actually require the greatest amount of freedom. Much of it’s sung with uncontrolled vibrato and total emotional release. It is, however, the least conversational of all genres. Because it lacks the intimacy of that conversational quality with the audience (think folk music), it has the tendency to give audiences the impression of admiring a beautiful painting from afar.

The classical genre includes secular arias and religious oratorios, as well as motets. Opera singing is similar, but it’s part of a stage production, often involving dancing and speaking parts. Think of opera as a musical with classical singing instead of Broadway-style singing.

Tips & Vocal Exercises for Opera Singers
  • Don’t try to sound like how you think an opera singer sounds. Sing with an open and free voice.

  • Vibrato sometimes develops over time as we let go of more and more tension. Don’t force it or try to create it.

  • Get a voice teacher. Opera singing can seldom be taught without a good teacher.
