Practice Breathy Voice
Before practicing any other aspect of her singing, it is better to practice how to sing in a breathy voice.
You can sing in a breathy voice by exhaling more than you normally do while singing.
But don’t overdo it or it won’t sound nice.
It will sound like you need an auto tune which is not what we are looking for.
Practicing this aspect is extremely important because you have to practice switching between low and high notes after this.
If you don’t know how to sing during the low notes, you won’t be able to switch between high and low notes.
Practice In Clear Voice
Once you have mastered the art of singing in a breathy voice, you should start practicing singing clearly.
Try to sing as clearly as possible and make sure all the words that you are singing can be heard easily.
Singing clearly doesn’t mean that you have to shout.
Billie Eilish doesn’t shout in her songs.
She sings very lightly and that is what you should do as well.
After you are done practicing both high and low notes, it is time for switching between them.
You can choose her songs for this purpose.
First, listen to her songs and learn all the lyrics.
A good song for this purpose is “Lovely”.
You can skip the parts where Khalid sings and only practice Billie Eilish’s parts.
Notice in which parts she is singing in low notes and in which parts she is singing in high notes.
The part where she switches is where you need more practice.
Moreover, staying on the note for as long as required also requires practice.
Practice with Different Songs
After you are done practicing switching between low and high notes, it is time to practice different songs of Billie Eilish.

Sing in A Deep Voice

For this purpose, sing all through your chest and not through your nose.
You can’t have a deep voice if you sing through your nose.
As mentioned above, Billie Eilish doesn’t shout in her songs.
She sings very lightly even though she has a deep and mature voice.
You have to practice this aspect as well especially if you have a loud voice.
Try to sing her songs in a light voice.
