Smart Vocal Warm-UpsBy Kerry HeislerSMART notebook file and interactive PDF format
This collection includes five different sets of warmups. Each set includes a physical warm-up, breath awareness, and exercises to work on range, diphthongs, vowels, diction, and swing rhythms. The author suggests using each set for at least three rehearsals to allow vocalists to become familiar with the warm-ups, and then move on to the next set. If you have rehearsal three times a week, this program will cover five weeks of rehearsals before repeating a set. Each of the exercises is recorded by a female and male singer. The singers model how to do the exercises, then drop out so your choir can sing with the piano accompaniment.
For teachers with any IWB (Interactive White Board) or computer with projector, an interactive PDF file has been included. For teachers with a SMART Board, the warm-ups have been included in a SMART Notebook file.
