Vocalize! 2: 36 More Accompanied Exercises to Teach Technique by Andy Beck
Each exercise in this valuable resource is designed to reinforce fundamental vocal concepts for Choral and solo singers of any age. Organized in 12 focused categories, the purpose of every warm-up is evident, and clearly stated directions optimize growth. Supportive piano accompaniments, including progressive modulations, are lightly orchestrated (available online) and are perfect for ensemble rehearsals, studio lessons, or at-home practice! As an added bonus, downloadable PDFs provide extracted vocal lines on reproducible singer pages. Topics include beginning warm-ups, posture, vowels, breath support, tone quality, resonance, diction, intonation, range, expression, harmony, and more. A welcome follow-up to Vocalize!, this is an instructional book you will use again and again!
