Vocal Warm-Ups Book & CD (SheetMusicPlus)
Singing requires putting the rest of your busy life aside and focusing on both the physical and creative components of making art through sound. Just like athletes, musicians must warm up to be limber, relaxed and ready to perform, and to prevent strain or injury. These 25 warm-ups are designed to take your voice and body from their everyday habits and routines and to focus and prepare them to sing well. The exercises begin with broad, large-muscle relaxation techniques and breathing work, and move on to a gradual, relaxed warm-up of your voice and strengthening of your vocal skills. The CD contains demos for listening and separate backing tracks so you can sing along. Three songs are also included for practice.
