ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Also available in a male version.
The warmup comes with a 45 page ebook--info on how to get the ebook is on Track 1.

Most of the vocal warm up and strengthening methods available are for singers with healthy vocal cords. The Vocal Recovery Warmup is designed for singers with “challenged” voices, singers for whom a slower, gentler approach is recommended. These singers include:

• Singers with colds or allergies
• Singers with vocal fatigue from too much singing, improper singing, or singing while sick
• Beginning singers
• Older singers with dry, crackly, or wobbly voices
• Singers recovering from an emotional or physical trauma
• Returning singers who are rusty
• Singers taking meds that dry the vocal cords
• Singers coping with environmental factors like smoky bars or air conditioning
• Post-menopausal singers
• Singers on tour

...and anyone else who wants a slow, easy, safe vocal warmup method.

Beginning or returning singers can use the warmup to build vocal strength and knowledge. Experienced and trained singers can use it whenever they are challenged by colds, allergies, dryness or vocal fatigue.

The Vocal Recovery Warmup is a five part method designed to build or restore vocal strength. The audio files include step-by-step instruction and exercises. The ebook explains how to use the warmup successfully based on your particular vocal challenge, and dives deeper into vocal cord health. It includes specific information for working with fatigued, sick, dry, weak or older vocal cords.

The Vocal Recovery Warmup download includes:

Over 100 minutes of audio singing lessons and exercises.
A 45 page ebook.

The audio singing lessons and exercises are in five parts that gradually increase in difficulty. As each singer improves, he or she can move on to the next part and continue to build more strength and range. The earlier parts include easier exercises and longer instructional introductions to guide you through singing each exercise with good vocal technique. The later parts include more difficult exercises and shorter instructional introductions, so that once a singer has built up some vocal strength and knowledge he or she can move more quickly. Singers with very challenged voices and very beginning singers should start with Part 1. Singers with less challenged voices may be able to start with Part 2. Part 5 is a rangier warmup with more difficult exercises that singers can use as a daily maintenance singing warmup after working with the earlier parts.

The Vocal Recovery Warmup also includes three versions of the song "Wade in the Water", along with instruction on how to easily and safely transition from singing the exercises to singing songs.
The ebook includes detailed information on how to use the warmup successfully depending on your particular vocal challenge, and dives deeper into vocal technique, vocal cord health and more. It includes specific information for working with fatigued, sick, dry, allergy-ridden, weak, returning or older voices. All singers at some point grapple with one of these vocal issues, which makes The Vocal Recovery Warmup a useful part of every singer's toolkit.

The slower, gentler approach of the warmup is also ideal for beginning, returning, or older singers who want to learn vocal technique and build or rebuild vocal strength slowly and safely. The essentials of good singing technique are all covered: breathing, posture, facial resonance, tongue and mouth position, throat relaxation and more. A chapter on good speaking technique is also included.

While using the warmup singers will learn which sounds and techniques to use when singing with a cold or allergies. They’ll learn to recognize when they are singing correctly and building strength, and when they are wearing out the voice. They'll learn troubleshooting tricks to free up the voice when they feel stuck as well as how to avoid many vocal problems in the future. More information is on the FAQs page at vocalrecoverywarmup.com.


Please note: if you have laryngitis and have no voice at all, your vocal cords are too inflamed to use this or any other singing method or warmup. You need to wait until you can produce some sound before working with the warmup. If you have nodules or polyps on your vocal cords, the warmup can help, but it is strongly recommended that you work one-on-one with a voice professional during your healing process. Singers with vocal nodules, cysts or polyps should consult a voice doctor or ear, nose, and throat doctor before using this or any other singing method.


Range: Alto
The early exercises are in a range of just over an octave. Later exercises gradually cover a bigger range:


Initial range F—G (one+ octave), later range F—G (two+ octaves)


• You can listen to some longer samples and get an idea of range here: vocalrecoverywarmup.com.
• Listen to Track 78 to hear "Wade in the Water" in alto range.
