"Home" Position - First Warm-up

The techniques of Lesson One are your first warm-up exercises. All voice and breathing studies begin with the Home position. In fact, if you find one point in your vocal core is out of position, it is more important to gently dis-entangle the tension instead of attempting to move forward into sound making.

Lesson One Vocabulary
