Re: What vocal exercises do you do to warm up?

Well clearly you're beyond our help, mr. grammy winner. ;)

No for real, I like this thread/idea. I like a "top 5 warmup exercises" thread.

Most likely it'd have the majority advocating humming and doing different onsets on different vowels with varying but increasing intensity.

Since most vocal programs include a warmup, asking for a specific warm up is kinda pointless, everyone has their own that usually stems from the programs they use.

With all that said, my warmup's cornerstones (that never change) are

- running varied scales on Ng, M, N, V, Z and sometimes J

And that's it. Everything else depends on what I'm going to sing and do that day.

Lip bubbles and/or humming on various legato scales.

Then the 5 italian vowels on various legato scales.

Then practice SINGING your tough phrases

Bring these all over the range all dynamics you can etc.

That's all you really need, the magic is in HOW you do them.

I swing the cat around the room by the tail and try to match that sound.

Just kidding, the cat would rip me to shreds. She's a feisty one ...

Like Owen and Khassera said, you need something that works for you if what you are doing now doesn't work. this thread reminds me of some of the threads that would get started by JayMC. Offering a hypothetical situation and see what everyone says about it, like collecting information.

But basically, any warm-up that you do should open the majority of your range. Not the extremities, but the main area that you plan to work in.

Re: What vocal exercises do you do to warm up?

In my product, "The Four Pillars of Singing", There is a phase in the program called "The Foundation Building Routine"... it consists of semi-occluded phonations that are resonant tracking on a nasal consonants, specialized onsets to tune your formant, practice larynx dampening, engage vocal fold compression,  and generally coordinate your body and ear to produce a beautiful formant, respiration exercises and then a wrap-up that puts it all together with several "onsets & sirens" workouts... these are all explained in my training system with detailed routines, video demonstrations, etc...

Granted, this is a bit more then just a "warm-up", but most people need more then just a 'warm-up'... I also do glottal attaches with strong TA pulls... or "Call" onsets... which are hard to explain in words, you have to kind of hear it or I can show you in an internet lesson.

Hope this helps.
