Classical Vocal Training for Singers : Humming Warm Up for Classical Voice Training

Uploaded by expertvillage on 09.02.2008

Hello, I'm Nina Mikhailova with Expert Village and this is my little guy and he will show
you some exercises. So, we just finished the study about breathing. Now don't forget about
this, but we add a little bit more. We start vocal exercises with humming. Never start
with an open mouth. Actually in Italy, opera singers for the whole year they do all the
exercises with closed mouths. This is your resonators, so you have to feel like the air
touches you from inside. Okay, you go up and down the scales and it warms up your voice.
Next exercise we'll do includes staccato. You imagine like you're playing with a ball
inside. So, you're pushing the ball. So, we're doing the exercise, but on staccato. You push
the ball out. Okay, you go up and down the scales about one octave.
