Intermediate Warm-up Series Playlist

VoiceGuy Playlist
The Intermediate Warm-up Series includes audio for each of the exercises outlined in the blog. These audio files can be downloaded here 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.

Each step in the warm-up has two formats: long-form, and condensed. The long-form is me reading the blog post, so that you can learn the step properly and carefully, and come to understand the logic behind it. The condensed format is just that: it’s me leading you through the step, with very little explanation about how to do the exercise. Use this if you’ve already read the post, or have studied with me before.
