Samba Vocalise

From Plank Road Publishing

by Teresa Jennings

This is a warm-up designed for older students. It's a little sophisticated, focusing on major 7 chords and subtle movement. It is a good exercise for interval movement, pitch matching, vowel placement, and hearing chord changes. It's also somewhat challenging.

There are three different vocal parts, but they are meant to be sung separately, one after the other. Part 1 is lower and uses "ah" to open up the throat. Part 2 is mid-range and uses "oh" to emphasize the movement. Part 3 is sung on "ooh" and is meant to employ the head voice. It also helps singers focus on pitch matching.

The Latin jazz groove is marvelous, and you may find some of your students (or yourself) wanting to improvise to the changes. By all means, let them! Consider also using it to let young jazz instrumentalists play along and improvise. (from Music K-8, Vol. 12, No. 5)
