5 Minute Vocal Warm Up For Beginners
One of the first things you need to know when you’re starting out learning to sing, is how to do an effective warm up.
Not only will a good warm up protect your voice from potential injury but it helps you SOUND BETTER! Yep, its one of the easiest and most effective things you can do to start sounding better straight away.
So how do you get started? In today’s video I’ll explain what to concentrate on when you warm up then I’ll take you through three exercises that focus on different areas of your voice to give you a well rounded warm up.
This is how to warm up for singing:
1. Move Your Mouth
Get into the habit of moving your mouth more when you sing. People tend to mumble a lot which can muffle your lyrics. Practicing moving and opening your mouth during a warm up is a great way to get used to singing with better articulation.
2. Activate Your Diaphram
Your instrument operates on AIR and your diaphragm is the ‘breathing muscle’, so use your warm up to activate it and start taking in deeper breaths.
3. Start Slowly, Don’t Push Yourself
Warm ups take different lengths of time, depending on how much you have been singing and how ‘vocally fit’ you are. To avoid injury, start slow and don’t go for volume during your warm up. Just enjoy it! Its a great way to relax and get your mind and body ready to sing.
