For example, the vowel Y in a word BABY very often changed on AY - BABAY

All right, singers! I hope that you had fun exploring some different sounds today. My hope is that you continue to stretch yourself so you become a more versatile singer. Maybe you’ve got one style that’s your favourite, and that’s what you sing the majority of the time. But I encourage you to not limit yourself, especially if you’re new to voice lessons and haven’t found your niche. Keep exploring and see what fits best!
