VOCAL WARM-UPS ~

Posted on January 8, 2010 at 12:40 AM

 
  
VOCAL WARM-UP


* stretch and yawn; do whatever you do to help yourself to feel deeply relaxed...

* take a deep breath (from the diaghpragm) and on the exhale say and extended hhhhhmmmmm
     repeat X 10 allowing the lungs to release all of the air.  Collapse your abdomen as you exhale.
* Do a hum-slide up and down your vocal range with "hhhhhmmmmmmmm."

* feel different parts of mouth and nasal area or "Mask/Mid-Range" vibrate with the different sounds:

             MMMM MMMMMMMMMM...                 ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ...

                            EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE...               NNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN...

                 VVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVV...       Mum Mum Mum Mum Mum Mum Mum Mum Mum

* open your mouth , eyes, and face as wide as you can on the last syllable of:

Mumula Mumula Mumula Mumula Mumula Mumula Mumula Mumula

SILLY PHRASES

* each phrase features different difficult consonant combinations.
Start slow, over-articulating and then increase speed

Red letter, yellow letter~

Good blood, bad blood~

Eleven benevolent elephants~

Teaching ghosts to sing~

The big, black-backed bumblebee~

A critical cricket critic~

Selfish shellfish~

Really rural~

Unique New York~

The tip of the tongue, the lips, the teeth~

To titillate your tastebuds, we've got these tasty tidbits~

COGNATES

* Feel a pulse in your diaphram with the following sounds

unvoiced: PUH PUH PUH PUH PUH PUH PUH PUH

VOICED: BUH BUH BUH BUH BUH BUH BUH BUH

unvoiced: TUH TUH TUH TUH TUH TUH TUH TUH

VOICED: DUH DUH DUH DUH DUH DUH DUH DUH

unvoiced: KUH KUH KUH KUH KUH KUH KUH KUH

VOICED: GUH GUH GUH GUH GUH GUH GUH GUH

TONGUE TWISTER!

* This long tongue twister contains many buzz sounds and difficult
consonant combinations. It is possible to say all in one breath if you
use diaphramatic breathing and carefully control the volume of air
expelled. Articulate every sound!

What a to-do to die today at a minute or two to two,

a thing distinctly hard to say but harder still to do.

for they'll beat a tattoo at a quarter to two:

a rat-ta tat-tat ta tat-tat ta to-to.

and the dragon will come when he hears the drum

at a minute or two to two today, at a minute or two to two

Thank you so much for the tips. This is some really good information for people getting into singing lessons. You can't find much of thos on the web. It's mostly scam. So thank you very much. If you'd like you can check out my website www.voicelessonsmemphis.com I also try and put relavent information for the picking.

I apologise, but, in my

opinion, this theme is not so actual.
