How to Warm Up Your Voice

Love the info graphic!

Sara's Music Studio

Vocal warm ups are an absolute must in my studio. Warm ups give us the opportunity to check in with our instrument to make sure it’s working properly. Students spend approximately 1/3 of their lesson time working on warm ups and vocalises, some of which might sound a little “odd” (see “Vocalises Do Not Always Sound Pretty“).

My favorite analogy to use with students is one about running. A runner wouldn’t launch into a cross-country trek without warming up their muscles first. The same goes for singing. It’s important to warm up our vocal folds before we sing. Warm ups let us “stretch” our instrument before we use it, and they can also serve as a diagnostic tool to let us know how our voice is feeling and functioning that day.
