A vocal warmup routine doesn’t need to employ fancy singing exercises to be super effective. Today I’m going to walk you through a straightforward collection of activities perfect for the beginner singer, specially designed and organised to prepare your voice for excellent singing.
In many respects, a vocal warmup routine is an exercise in delayed gratification. We all want to get straight to the fun stuff, the songs, but for most voices, singing songs without a vocal warmup can mean the voice will not be able to sing as many songs; both short term and long. A vocal warmup routine is all about preparing the voice, a mechanism whose moving parts are mostly muscle. Your muscles need to be ready for use. Cold muscles are susceptible to injury, and they also don’t perform as well. Muscles need heightened blood flow when placed under load, and if you’re a contemporary singer, then you know all about vocal load.
