Description:


Welcome to your tutorial on essential elements for your daily routine. We’ll talk about what kind of exercises to use, in which order, and why they work. 
 
Part 1 will cover exercises that activate your breath and gently stretch your vocal folds. Part 2 has exercises that support growth with consonants that act as “training wheels”. And part 3 ends your routine with exercises to challenge you: training wheels off, and mostly open vowels. 
 
Let’s prepare our bodies to sing with a breath warmup!
