Vocalises for Singers

Vocal warm-ups are imperative for every singer and taking care of such a valuable instrument as your, or your students, voice should never be overlooked. We include here vocal warmups, in a variety of styles, for both the solo voice and for choirs. We know that we all want to think that the greatest singers out there can just roll out of bed and sound like the best thing since sliced bread, but the truth of the matter is that no matter who your hero is, he or she preserves their vocal health and takes care of their instrument - with warm-ups. Whether you're a jazz singer, a pop singer or a choir member, whether you're warming up your own voice or that of the 50 singers around you, we've got the warm-up techniques and exercises you need right here, both for solo voices and choirs.

Judith E. Carman : Yoga For Singingnew

Review: The development of a singer takes several years and involves training many different abilities. Since the whole body is the singer's instrument, and the mind, emotions, and musical abilities play the instrument, it is necessary to train all these elements. In the early developmental stage of perhaps six to eight years from high school through college, and beyond, the practices of yoga can be of great assistance in training the various facets of the whole singer. Beyond the training and development stages, the practices of yoga serve the singer well throughout life by keeping body, breath, mind, and spirit in healthful balance. Judith E. Carman, DMA, has taught singing for forty years, practiced yoga for almost twenty years, and taught yoga classes especially designed for singers for a decade. Dr. Carman has conducted Yoga for Singers workshops in university settings, for choral groups, in yoga studios, and for the National Association of Teachers of Singing and National Opera Association national conferences and at national workshops. The material is divided into five categories: individual postures, short examples of practices for specific purposes, breathing techniques, a short demonstration class that includes all the elements of a complete practice in shortened form

Pro Vocal : Vocal Exercises for Building Strength, Endurance and Facilitynew

Review: Vocal strength is essential to producing a good sound, singing with control and confidence, and singing for many years. A weak voice is one that tires easily, one that is inconsistent in sound quality and/or pitch and dynamics, and one that gives out many years before the singer is ready to stop singing. Vocal strength is not all about singing loudly, it's about singing well. The exercises and musical selections in this book are designed to help singers hone and refine their skills to develop the kind of control and consistency professional singers need to compete and find work. But mastering these skills is not just a task for professional singers - amateur singers who work on the exercises in this book will find singing easier and more fun with each new level of control they achieve.

There is a book that explains all of the exercises and each exercise is demonstrated by a singer on the CD so it is easy to use. Once you hear the exercise you will be accompanied by piano to sing along with the CD.

"Use of this warm up tape done correctly over a period of time will result in better vocal production, strength, and coordination of muscles. Many of my professional students use this tape prior to their performances. The ear training part of the CD is to help you develop better pitch and recognition of notes and patterns. You will find that your musicianship skills will increase over time by listening to the exercises and identifying what you are singing."

PART III presents the important elements of diction in the five languages most commonly used in singing: English, Italian, French, German and Spanish.

Ferdinand Sieber : Vocalises - Soprano

Review: The Sieber Vocalises: It is important to know why Sieber is so good for the voice. He was a Viennese, Italian-trained voice teacher who knew the importance of vowel alteration and its role in keeping the balance of the registers. The Sieber Vocalises are designed to balance the registers using 8 measure melodies based on the Italian syllables da, me, ni, po, to, la, be. The register balance is achieved in the ingenious way Sieber arranges the syllables. Again, his goal it to allow the space of the open vowels in the closed vowels, and the ring of the closed vowels in the open vowels. Lindquest called these vocalises the 'bridge between vocalizing and singing music'. In my 25 years of teaching, I have never found a singer that the Sieber Vocalises did not help tremendously. Thirty-Six Eight-Measure vocalises for Sopranos, complete with solfege.

Review: Giuseppe Concone, the famous Italian Master of Singing and Pianoforte, was born in Turin in the year 1810.

In 1837 he moved to Paris, where he became famous as a teacher of the piano forte, singing, the theory of music and composition. While resident in Paris, Concone became very popular as a composer of Romanzas, Arias and Duettini; but his chief title to fame rests on a Series of Solfeggi which have a world-wide reputation and are everywhere in use - they are eminently practical and melodious, with a flowing accompaniment.
