♫ Dual Purpose Warm-up suitable for middle school or high school
(1) Ooh Descending 5 tone and (2) Sustained long tone on Ah (Modified Vowel)
♫ Use as a choral warm-up or private voice student warm-up.
♪ 1st time through: 5 tone descending on "Oo." Use vibrato on the first and last note. Crescendo on the first note. Use a "hooty" Oo. Focus is on the first pitch to develop strength and volume.
♪ 2nd time through on repeat: sustain a long pitch oh a tall, relaxed "Ah." Listen to your vibrato. Relax the tongue and jaw. Focus is to work on developing a consistent, free vibrato.
[Starts on middle line Bb, goes up to G above the staff, then descends back to the Bb. Repeats]
♪ This Warm-up is specifically designed to build strength and volume in your singers. Many middle school singers are afraid to find their "forte." This one is great for doing that.
♪ ENCOURAGE YOUR SINGERS TO "TRUMPET" THEIR SOUND ON THE FIRST LONG "OOH."
They need to experiment with pressure and volume as they move through the different registers of their voice. Through experimentation, they will discover how hard they can push their forte and still maintain a beautiful tone.
Total warm-up is 2:08.
BAND AND ORCHESTRA TEACHERS:
Challenge your students: Play this .mp3 file and see if your students can figure out how to do the 5 tone descending pattern in all the keys.
Companion sheet music available.
