Does anyone know what would be the easiest style of chant to learn for private use?

I've sung my whole life, and I think prostopinije, plain chant, is the easiest to learn.

I would agree, but I am biased that being my tradition!

You should learn the style of your tradition. Then once you have done that you can explore other traditions.

I don't know the answer; each has its own technical challenges. I might suggest visiting Ancient Faith Radio online and listening to the tutorials of Stephen Khouri to see what Byzantine Chant is like. He has a rather nice series on it.
