Hi V! Welcome to your Singing Exercises Page!
It is important to warm up before you sing so that you don’t do any damage to your voice, to remind you to use correct technique in your pieces, and to develop your skills. Your voice is a wonderful instrument, and because it is part of your body it is effected by any number of things, including how much sleep you have had, what you have eaten, how much you have used it, the weather, hormones, etc. Because of this some days you will be able to sing higher and lower, using more tone, keeping in tune, better than other days. Part of being a singer is getting to know your voice, knowing what feels normal, when to push it and when to rest it. It’s a wonderful journey!
These exercises will take less than 5 minutes, so I think it will be a great beginning to your home practice. If it feels too high, don’t push it, they are warm ups. Keep them light and airy. And have fun!
