Goals

  • Each inhale refills to your defined level of comfortable full. 
  • Opens your inside voice pitch line like a million tiny scrub brushes! These small sirens are a magical interval for mending breaks in the thread of your voice. 
  • One of your most efficient and effective voice warm-ups.

​Timestamps:

<​4:53:  Preparation - Stance, home position, integration with stance and breathing. Establish consistent comfortable full inhale destination. 

5:00 -  5:27 Circle the top 10% of your air in and out of your vocal core while you adjust to the air pressure underneath. 

5:30 - 8:52  Ex​ercise instructions

Our speech and song move in a melodic, sing-song manner. When you take the consonants out of any sentence and move the sound only on the tone of the words, you find the underlying melody of your language.  Loop-di-loops of phrases segmented by consonants and punctuation. 

To strengthen your core voice, we isolate and strengthen these underlying melodic relationships of language and song.  

The tonal relationship  of the "minor 3rd" is one of our most early vocal communication. Simply pretend you are calling a new born baby's name and your voice will naturally form this most fundamental musical relationship.

We are going to use the strength of this fundamental tonal relationship to condition your voice.

​Preparation

  • Solid Stance or sitting position
  • ​Vocal Core at rest in the Home position
  • Establish a consistent ​Comfortabl​y Full breath level.
  • Circle in and out 90% + 10% of your breath until you adjust to the air pressure below you. (Larynx and vocal core remain at rest.)
  • Hmm downwards to find the inside thread of your voice.
  • Little sirens - Play with little, quiet sirens on your inside pitch line.

Exercise

  • ​​Hum on a​ single pitch. 
  • Pause
  • Inhale and return​ to ​your comfortabl​y full breath volume. 
  • Hum down to the lower pitch. Do NOT push the note ​downwards. ​ 
  • Pause - Breathe back to ​starting comfortable full air volume.
  • Hum ​up ​to the higher pitch and sustain.  Do NOT push the note upwards.
  • ​Inhale to comfortable Full
  • Pause
  • Repeat exercise*

​Breathe Freely

When you feel out of breath or tired, "Breathe Freely" 

  • Jaw falls downward causing the lips to slightly part. 
  • Follow the sensation of the vacuum as it draws breath into your chest and vocal core.
  • Inhale and exhale at your own pace until you feel comfortably full with air.
  • Notice if your level of comfortable full has increased.
  • Adjust and define that your fuller comfortable breath volume level.
