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.

Julie Lyonn Lieberman : Vocal Aerobics

Review: World-renowned music educator Julie Lyonn Lieberman has created a practice system for singers that focuses on muscular facility. This system can help develop a vibrating palette that communicates spirit, emotion, and viewpoint - all riding effortlessly on the breath. It is supported by science yet connected to individuality. By guiding the exercises in silence first, this approach can prevent the tension and misuse that often occur when the main impetus for the creation of musical sound is fueled by a brew of yearning and fear mixed with a fixation on the end product. Topics covered include: strengthening and "aerobicizing" the muscles of the tongue, lips, mouth, and breath support; balancing the non-dominant side of the mouth; as well as posture, vocal health, and the use of visualization.

Songlist: Introduction, Creating a Cathedral, Breath Anatomy, Aerobicizing The Toungue, Mobilizing the Lips, Dominance, Imaging, Posture, Warming Up, Vocal Health, Vocal Exrecises

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.

Sam West : Vocal Workout

Review: First released on video, this programme was the first of its kind to have been produced in the UK, and is still a 'best seller' in music stores and mail order companies in the UK, and Europe.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart : Solfeggios and Vocal Exercises

Review: Here is a collection of vocal exercises written my the master himself. The Solfeggi are to be sung on all vowels with and without the supporting consonants. The execution should be legato throughout except when they are staccato dots. The editor has added breath marks and slurs which are to be taken to indicate the breathing. Challenging but highly rewarding and effective.

Songlist: Solfeggio 1, Solfeggio 2, Solfeggio 3, Solfeggio (Fragment), Esercisio per il Canto

Style: Classical
