Basic Warm-up Series Playlist

VoiceGuy Playlist

The Basic Warm-up Series includes audio for each of the exercises outlined in the blog. These audio files can be downloaded here as a single file, compressed in .zip format, or individually as separate .mp3’s. As the VoiceGuy develops, you will have the opportunity to download more steps in other series and you’ll be able to pick and choose the components you’d like to use for your warm-up.

[I’ll be using this icon VoiceGuy Playlist Icon in future posts to indicate when a playlist is available.]
