Warmups for Soloist

Hey Everyone! My name is Stacy and I am a Vocal Performance Major in Upstate NY. I was wondering if any of you had any ideas for warmups that could help me break my monotonous warmup routine as of right now. Please help!!!

Hi Stacy. Simple variations can really make a difference in warming up your mind as well as your voice. To stray from triadic arrppegios, you can arrppegiate a dominant 7th chord going up half steps. Also, instead of singing scales 'do' to 'do', adding the nineth on top makes a huge difference. Varying tempo, dynamics, vowels, tonality, and rhythm are all simple ways to alter the warm-up routine you already have in place. It is good to have exercises that work for your voice and that are also forcing you to work on the weak points in your technique. Perhaps stick with your routine, but try adding new exercises to see which ones work and which do not. I also agree to consult your teacher about these things, your teacher will have a deep insight to what could work for your voice specifically and help you acheive more vocally. I hope this helped!
