5 Vocal Warm-Ups for Singers:
- Lip Buzz: It consists of, without emitting any sound, putting your lips together to make them vibrate. By doing so, you will help build up your breath support while singing. After, try adding (to your vibration ) a tone for a few seconds for better performance.
- Solfege: We are all very familiar with this technique. To get your ear ready, we recommend practicing without a piano. Starting on middle C, sing through the solfege up and down the scale (Do, Re, Mi, Sa, Sol, La, Ti, Do.) Apply this technique from top to bottom as many times as you see fit.
- “Mah-May-Me-Mo-Moo”:Remaining on one note (monotone), sing “mah-may-me-mo-moo.” Like with the previous exercise, repeat this ‘song’ on A3 and then climb the scale — this will help you to create a better vocal sound. Remember to take your time and do not rush!
- I love to sing: Sing from the lowest notes to the highest alternating these notes while saying ‘I love to sing.’ Keep a smile on, as it is a great way to try big jumps. Moreover, this technique will help you have better voice quality.
- The Siren: The Siren is probably the most straightforward exercise on the list! Think of the firefighters’ or the police’s Siren and imitate it. From the lowest note to the highest; if you achieve this successfully you will know that your vocals are on a good shape!
