Prep Warm-Up

by Teresa Jennings

Here's a good way to get your singers ready to sing or to do other warm-ups. Posture and concentration are the focus of the words, but you can use it for other elements as well. For example, have them sing it with separation as we did, or more smoothly for contrast. Our recording has it sung through five times, modulating in half steps. There is only a piano on the recording though, so you could certainly play this live yourself and adapt it to be longer, shorter, faster, slower, whatever you prefer. Try to have singers do each four bar phrase in one breath to encourage proper support. (from Music K-8, Vol. 23, No. 3)
