Your voice is a very special instrument that you always have with you. People have probably been making music with their voices since the beginning of humanity. The ancient Greeks had even developed methods to teach various singing techniques. The physical differences in vocal cords between men and women, for example, create a variety of vocal ranges such as soprano, tenor and baritone. Combining lyrics and music, singing is also a powerful way to convey emotions.
Singing can accompany various styles of music, including catchy pop songs.
