your own vocal workout
Date: August 28, 2014
I used to direct a multigenerational homeschool chorus up north. Now I live in Texas and have been teaching voice privately (about 12 kids a week) for 4 years.
I'm looking for new ways to give my own voice a workout and fresh ideas for students.
What are your favorite exercises to work on the following things:
- improving the singers ability to sing long connected phrases without sneaking a breath
- removing tension from the voice
- making the singers sound warmer without muddying the diction
I do have ways of working on all those things but just want to try new ideas.
