When it comes to singing being a beginner musician can be difficult. Until you’ve learned advanced singing techniques, most will struggle with more complex music tracks. Whether you are an aspiring artist or just a hobbyist looking to improve your karaoke game, you should consider finding some easy songs to sing in order to practice, build confidence, as well as get a better idea of what types of songs that suit your voice, tone, and style.
The easiest songs to sing are easy to learn, have easy lyrics, are in the range of an octave or less, and have notes that are in your comfortable range or preferred register.
Choosing an easy song to perform:
Now that we know what constitutes an easy song, it is also imperative to understand what makes an easy song to perform. The song you perform should show off your singing skills and also should suit your style.
When you perform a song, it always helps to sing with emotion and heart. An audience can feel and understand when an artist truly feels the song or not.
You must also choose a song that complements your vocal ranges which you are comfortable with. If you have just started learning singing and you are not comfortable with very high or very low notes, then choose songs that have most notes in your chest register.
New singers should definitely not perform really complex songs like “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen. Not only does the song span lots of octaves, but it is a really complex song in its structure. New singers will most likely struggle with such song choices.

Tips To Improve Your Performance As a Beginner
There are many mistakes beginners make while attempting a song. The number one is to not practice vocal exercises daily and to not warm up before a performance. Both are very important, as vocal exercises help you build your voice, improve tone and in turn improve your performance. Another vital technique most beginners miss is to practice breathing techniques. As a singer, you must be able to sing long interludes while breathing minimally. This only comes with practice.
Here are some additional tips to help you:
- A song should be learned by breaking it into bits of technique, style can be mastered after you have learned the technique of the song.
- Singing a song without any style or “performing” a song might sound dull.
- Practice how you will emote the song during your performance. Emoting is as important as technique and style of the song.
- Make sure to memorize the lyrics. Nothing sounds worse than when a singer has forgotten his lyrics and is stumbling on stage.
- A song is made of up many parts like chorus, verse, bridge. When you map out a song, do label all of these so that it makes your understanding of the construction better. You will also be able to learn the song more easily.
- Map the lyrics by singing them and just saying them. Say them with meaning, as if you are talking to someone. This will help you better emote your songs and will bring a lot of meaning to your performance.
When you start as a beginner, make sure to start with easy songs, master them and then go on to a harder song. You don’t want to tire your voice or become unmotivated when you aren’t able to sing a song. Just like any other art, singing required diligent and regular practice. The more you practice your scales, the better you will get.
There are many many simple songs which you can attempt as a beginner. The above were a few of the popular ones for both male and female voices. To be a good singer, it is important yo know your voice, tone, and range. As you get better at singing, your range of songs will start increasing. It is imperative to not only sing the songs you like but the ones which suit your voice tone.
The range can be expanded with the help of scales and vocal exercises. Nevertheless, we hope you liked our selection of songs. If there are any easy songs to sing that you feel should be added to this list, let us and everyone else know in the comments. Happy singing!
