Just like athletes, musicians and singers need to warm up before practicing or performing. Although those warm-ups are very different, the purpose is the same—to prevent strain and injury and ensure that the athlete or musician is limber, relaxed, focused, and ready to do his or her best. Vocal Warm-Ups contains 25 warm-ups to prepare your voice and body for everyday habits and routines, from broad, large-muscle relaxation techniques and breathing work, to techniques for strengthening your vocal skills. The CD contains demos for listening, backing tracks, vocal warm-ups, and songs for practice.
