Training Day 3

Warm up (Breathing exercise)

Program length: 12 minutes

Gentle Start: Little Oohs (C-F)

  • No issues. Dropped jaw, raised soft palate

Getting Warmer: Mayonnaise (B-F#)

  • Focused on forward placement, migrating vowels, and dropping the jaw
  • No issues

Getting Warmer: Ooh Ma Goodness! (B-F#)

  • Focused on dropping the jaw and forward placement

Extending the Range: One Octave Tune (Bb-G)

  • Had difficulty with the last, repeated it, and got a more solid G that was on the bridge between my chest and my head tones

(short rest)

Mouth Workout: Totally Happy (C-Bb)

  • I officially HATE this exercise. It became difficult as soon as I got to G#. Making the transitions still proved to be difficult. Probable cause: Not getting and keeping enough air to sing. I’m usually almost out of breath as I get to the top “To-tally”

Tuned Up: 12345 (C-F)

  • Loved this one. I love how the last exercises always feel like they cap and cement the day’s session.

RESOLUTION:

Focus on breathing. Air is important in singing! Extend breathing exercises to 32 counts and find more breathing exercises.
