1. 15-minute Warm up called: SING WITH ME!
Breathing exercise – get ready to sing!
• “Nooo” on a long-held note
• Yum yum yum

2. Sing Along Song: “All Through The Night” - (5-minutes) A Welsh folk song from the 1700’s. I chose this song for its beautiful, easy melody that many voice-types can enjoy. If any of the words offend you, please change those words to suit your needs. I hope you enjoy singing along after you have warmed up your glorious voice!
Comment from singer and author, Barbara Lewis:
"I can’t tell you the number of times that audience members (both men and women), have come to me after a concert to tell me that “secretly” they have always wanted to sing.
Perhaps they dreamed about it in their younger years. Maybe they began to study and learn about singing as teens. But then along came another career opportunity or marriage or motherhood and singing took a backseat and then exited the car altogether!
Professional pianists have admitted the same desire to me; as have doctors, social workers, marketing specialists, guitar players, massage therapists… The list goes on. I tell them what I am going to tell you. If you love to sing: Sing Now! Begin Now.”
EVERY ONE SHOULD SING! The benefits of learning to sing well outweigh what is spent in time or money. First and foremost, singing makes you feel good. Think about the joy you feel when you sing along with a song on the radio. Few human endeavors can compare to singing – to the feeling of powerful sound and rhythm flowing through our bodies. We singers are different from other musicians. We are our own instrument!
