The Five-Day Vocal Workout
The SongShine Five-Day Vocal Workout provides five sets of vocal exercises to be practiced, one set each day. It’s like going the gym for vocal athletes. Instead of treadmills, rowing machines, or weights, you will work out with humming, diction exercises, breath support, soft palate strengtheners, smooth flowing tone production, range extension, and vocal strength building. Each exercise is designed to keep your voice limber and healthy. Once you are familiar with all the exercises, you may want to repeat one or two of the days so you can have a six- or seven-day routine. Most important: enjoy your vocal workout!
