Description:


Welcome to your performance warm-up tutorial. What can you expect to learn from this tutorial? A quick but comprehensive warm-routine that will reinforce proper technique and prepare your voice to be flexible and strong. To do this, we’ll use exercises that cover a wide range and move at a quicker pace. 
 
Similar to our other warm-up tutorials, we’ll gradually increase difficulty by starting with breath & space in part 1. 
Part 2, strength and tone, will help us eliminate tension and engage our body for a strong but relaxed sound. 
And in part 3, speed & style, we’ll get the voice moving for any runs and big leaps you might sing on stage. Ready? First, take a few minutes to stretch out with some relaxed breaths, and we’ll get started!
