Understanding Vocal Range
Emily's singing style relates highly with jazz and classical genres, where the use of mezza-voce, singing through a mask, and a high-pitched pure tone are critical.

A great way to practice posture is to stand against a wall while singing, making sure your shoulders, heels, and back head touch the wall.
