Fun Vocal Warm-Ups To Try Out

StageWise - Performing Arts Camp for Teenagers - Vocal Warm UpsVocal warm ups will not only get your voice ready, but the exercise will also help to get you in the zone, to focus your mind and get you worked up for a performance. In addition, much like a sports person, the warm-ups will help prevent vocal injury.

Many of the lines listed below could be classed as gibberish as they are nonsensical and repetitive, almost a mantra of sorts. This will help to clear you mind of any nerves – and for anyone that’s listening, it will lighten the mood of the dressing room…
