Strictly Warm-Ups Vol. 1 By Kerry Heisler Book and CD 20;pages;A choral resource designed for individuals or groups of all ages. This book and CD;provides a fun and easy "hands free" warm-up, allowing choral directors to get up close to their singers to check posture, vocal technique and hear each voice independently. The CD has 5 eight-minute warm-ups with piano accompaniment with a male and female vocal model singing along for the first few exercises and then you or your group continue until the end of the exercise. The sixth set is piano accompaniment only to allow for the creation of original exercises. The book has written examples of the exercises and piano accompaniments.Each set starts with a physical warm-up, a breath awareness activity, breathing exercise and then several exercises that use vowels, consonants and scales. Some of the exercises are fun tongue twisters.
