2: The Intermediate Warm-up Series

If you’ve been following along with the blog, you know we’ve worked our way through a ten step Basic Warm-up Series. Today begins the next series, a set of ten steps that, taken individually will increase your knowledge of your voice’s capabilities. As a group, they move a little bit further forward toward greater vocal awareness. Each of the exercises can be used in place of another step in the Basic series, and at the end of each post I’ll tell you which exercise you could replace in the basic series. Of course, once the Intermediate Series is done, you can use it on its own as a complete warm-up sequence.

The Ten Steps of the Series are as follows:

  1. Introduction (this post)
  2. Sustaining Breath
  3. Dabs of Sound
  4. Exploring Lower Range
  5. Jaw Swinging
  6. Small Tongue Rolls
  7. Soft Palate Lifting
  8. Lip Isolations
  9. Chest Resonance
  10. Articulation of FFFricatives
  11. Jawless Text
  12. Conclusion

As a bonus, I’m adding a second post today, as this post really just spells out where we’re going next: I’m sure you want something new to do today, not just read! The bonus is a post on one of the most commonly done physical exercises used in voice work, the spinal roll, or “Roll-Down.”

 This entire series is available for download in an audio format from the Intermediate Warm-up Series Playlistpage.
