Tips for Singing Groups

How to be successful in singing groups

Tips for Singing Groups: Singing groups are becoming ever popular in the music industry, as people choose to team up rather than go it alone. The problem singing groups’ face is that they all have something individually, but often struggle to make it work together as singing groups.

Tips for Singing Groups

It’s important to remember that singing groups are only as good as their worst performer. It might seem an easier way of performing as there are more people in singing groups to share the roles, but it doesn’t always work out that way. The most successful singing groups play on the strengths of each individual and try to highlight those whilst performing. In relation to a current pop act Little Mix are a fine example of this, individually they may not have made it, but combining their strengths in a group has allowed them to be a hugely successful act both in the UK and USA!

Singing Groups – Be Individual

Many singing groups struggle because they fail to layer up their harmonies and instead make all the harmonies the same. Without layering the vocals you risk sounding like a solo act. When performing it’s important that the vocals layer up well within singing groups to show off how diverse the act can be and what they’re capable of.

Singing Groups – Dynamics

In relation to the above point on harmonies, even more important is to ensure as a duo or group you work the dynamics individually to work collectively.

Singing Groups – Interact and Engage with one Another

Just because individuals within a group have their own role, doesn’t mean that there can’t be interaction within singing groups. Interaction and engagement with each other can show chemistry and unification. Which is again all part of the image with fans perceiving that they look fun and I’d like to be like them?  It’s often difficult for singing groups to interact with each other as they’re too focused on what they have to do, to avoid this it’s best to work out how to interact with each other when rehearsing for your performance.

Singing Groups – Act Image

In singing groups there is a stronger need for the image to be worked on because you need to look like an act, not a group of individuals. JLS are a strong example of a pop group that knew how to approach their image before they tried to make it in the industry. Haim also have an image but one that is a minimalistic image. The art of synchronisation is something all singing groups should master to look more like a group. Having a strong image as with any act is even more important with a duo or trio to express an identity that can help to develop the group as a brand.

Singing Groups – Routines

Being in singing groups rather than singing solo means there has to be double the amount of effort put into a performance, just singing won’t be enough. A good way of enhancing a performance within singing groups is by incorporating a routine into a performance. This keeps the audience watching and shows the group is more than just individuals singing, they are a group that can sing and perform.
