I want to say a few things about the warm-up. What’s important you understand about this warm up is: it’s not special.
There is nothing to this one in particular that is better or fits specifically in my course. If you have another favorite warm-up on YouTube – go ahead and work with that one. As long as it meets the principles below!
The three principles of a good warm-up
A good warm-up obeys these principles:
- It has a bit of bodywork/breathing exercises to start with.
- It is gradual. So it will start with a hum, a trill or a vocal consonant and go slowly to more open vowels and a larger range.
- It is easy to follow.
If you don’t have a lot of time to practice…
If you have little time, my advice is to do the warm-up instead of the song! That’s how important a warm-up is.
