Building a Vocal Workout

learning to sing videos vocal technique Jan 28, 2021

Want a done-for-you vocal workout designed specifically for beginners? I've got you covered - just head over to the Free Vocal Warm Up to get started.

Ah, the vocal workout. It's an interesting concept, really, but it does make sense. After all, a lot of learning to sing is about building muscle memory, strengthening muscles and gaining more control of the voice.

So a vocal workout is a way of controlling what you learn when you practice. If you have a specific goal, you can create a workout tailored to that goal - doing the workout often will help you achieve that goal. (Just like a personal trainer might design a workout for your fitness goals, we can make a workout for your singing goals!)

The key to this is knowing the exercises. There are a lot of vocal exercises out there, but if you know exactly what each of those exercises is training, it becomes a lot easier to put a workout together.

(And if you don't know what an exercise does, you can always ask someone.)

In the video above, I go through the entire process of creating a vocal workout, but here's a simplified version to help you get started;

  1. Decide what the goal is for your workout. 
  2. Work out what exercises will help you achieve that goal
  3. Add your Warm Up and Pre-Warm Up to the beginning of your workout
  4. Write it all down
  5. Do your workout regularly

If you've got the right exercises there, doing your workout often will help you achieve your goal in no time.
