Vocal Warm Up Lesson

Welcome to Madeleine Harvey’s “Total Voice Method”, Lesson 12: Essential Warm-Up. The objective of this download is to take you through a complete warm up session. These exercises are designed to relieve pressure on your vocal cords.

What to Expect in this Voice Lesson

This lesson today is a big one, so we broke down into 3 parts – Balance, Build and Release. This three part approach, Balance, Build and Release, offer the best techniques you can use to crank up your vocal power.

Relaxed Vocal Cords

It is very important to allow your sound to be what it is during a warm up, even if it feels really wobbly or shaky at times. This will allow your vocal cords the rare opportunity to work freely without any squeezing or pushing from other muscles.

Smooth Transitions

We’ll be building more flexibility and freedom throughout your entire vocal range. This will add consistency and smoothness to your transitions.

High and Low Pitch

We are going to be moving very high in pitch and very low in pitch. If we move into an area of your range that feels uncomfortable for you, simply stop. Return to exercise again when the pitch feels more comfortable.
