The Joy of Singing Together
Warming up the voice. 1. Do lip or tongue trills in the morning, to facilitate better use of airflow and breath. 2. Perform gentle humming and cooing to warm up your voice. 3. If you do more vocally complex warm-ups too, such as vocal scales, do the simple warm-ups first. 4. Repeat these exercises throughout the day to reduce muscular tension in the neck, shoulders and jaw. 5. At the end of the day, perform a cool-down of the voice with similar vocal tasks.
