Los Angeles - Harry Styles is taking singing lessons.

The One Direction star has reportedly teamed up with a vocal coach as he prepares for his solo career as he wants to learn how to "develop his vocal skills".

A source said: "People may find it funny Harry needs singing lessons ahead of a solo career but it's pretty standard practice.

"He's performed well live and can obviously sing but he's smart enough to realise he needs to learn more about how best to develop his vocal skills. He's grounded and professional enough to know he needs to work hard to achieve the success he wants as a solo artist."

The 21-year-old singer is said to enlisted the help of Ron Anderson, who has worked with the likes of Adele and Alicia Keys.

The insider added to the Daily Star on Sunday newspaper: "Harry's super-excited about the next chapter in his life. Ron's the best of the best and Harry's planning to make enough time in his schedule for regular coaching.

"It may mean sometimes he'll see him in Los Angeles or sometimes Ron will have to fly to London but it's a priority for him now that One Direction are taking a break."
