Finely Tuned Voice Lessons is pleased to announce the release of online warm-ups on our YouTube channel!* We know that practicing on your own at home can be challenging, so we recorded examples of warm-ups for both male and female voices! We hope you find them to be an excellent complement to your lessons for at-home practice between lessons with live feedback. Your voice is a muscle, so warming it up is so important before you really begin to work it by singing a song. Just as an athlete wouldn't curl 50 pounds before warming up, you should warm-up your voice before putting it through the demands of a song!
Not sure if lessons are for you? Use the warm-ups and find out! Then, when you're ready, sign up for your first lesson for live feedback with Maria! She will guide you through the warm-ups and explain how to do them and why you're singing those specific syllables. By watching these warm-ups, you'll get an idea of how she works and what you'll be working on when you come to the studio. You can also visit our frequently asked questions page if you are still feeling unsure about beginning voice lessons.
Already an accomplished singer? You can use these warm-ups to complement the warm-ups you're already doing in your own practice. If you need a tune-up, please schedule a lesson with us and we will be happy to give you feedback. It's always nice to have another set of ears listen to your work!
For singers who are already taking lessons in our studio, please keep doing your warm-ups at home before you practice the songs we're working on!
If you'd like us to record a video explaining a specific vocal/singing concept, please let us know! We are looking forward to hearing you sing-have fun with the warm-ups! :)
