Webinar 3: What's In A Warmup: The why, what and how of warming up your voice, your brain and your body for singing and speaking
- Have you ever thought what a vocal warmup actually does?
- What should it include?
- Should you change it or keep it the same?
- How long should it be?
We are Gillyanne Kayes and Jeremy Fisher, and we have more than 50 years' experience creating targeted warmups for professional, high-level singers, choirs and theatre companies.
We share our own warmup specifics for voice, breath, body, brain and articulators.
