GENERAL VOCAL WARMUP EXERCISES
CHEST, MIX & MORE COMPLEX EXERCISES
Pure chest voice exercises should only be done for 3 or 4 minutes.
To be done moderately loud, e.g on a scale of one to ten, about a 7 or an 8 out of 10.
Have consistent volume from the start to the end. Don't fade.
Open your mouth i.e drop that bottom jaw about 2 fingers apart

For female voices
PIANO ACCOMPANIMENT ONLY
These accompaniments have a wide range. Plese only go as high & low as comfortable.
E.g. Fast forward to a comfortable starting pitch. Tenors should sing the octave lower.
Exercise may be done on vowels, numbers, words, solfege.
Vocal range is NOT extended by pushing or singing extremely high or low.
Range is extended by working from the middle of the voice outwards, gradually, e.g you might gain 1 semitone in 3 months.
Be smart and disciplined with your practise. Choose a variety of exercises.
EXAMPLE VOCAL WORKOUT
This workout covers all parts of the voice, i.e, low, middle & upper registers.
Start off with a breathing exercises (not included at the moment).
What do the numbers means?
The numbers on the exercises refer to scale degree numbers of the major scale.
For example 13531 corresponds to C E G E C on the piano using the C major scale as a reference. All exercises go up in semitones but the scale degree numbers remain the same.
