Choir Warm-ups

Vocal warm ups

  1. Breath in through our nose, hold for 4 counts, and then let out through our mouths saying SSS (like a snake). Do this both as loudly and as quietly as possible. Imagine you are a huge anaconda and then the smallest rattlesnake.
  2. Humming from doh upto soh, and then back again
  3. Same saying ‘Super, duper, double bubble gum

My Bonny

My Bonny lies over the ocean

My Bonny lies over the sea

My Bonny lies over the ocean

So bring back my Bonny to me.

 

Bring back, 

Bring back, 

Oh, bring back my Bonny to me, to me. 

Bring back, 

Bring back, 

Oh, bring back my Bonny to me. 

 

*Split into parts one and two. Part one starts standing and part two starts sitting.

 

Simple warm-up

 

Simple harmony warm-up

 

Harmony warm-up

 

 

Row Your Boat

Row, row, row, your boat

Gently down the stream

Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily

Life is but a dream!

 

Any time

Any time I get the opportunity to warm up my voice

Any time I get the opportunity to warm up my voice

I’m gonna warm it up, warm it up

Any time I get the opportunity to warm up my voice

You’re gonna hear me say

hey, hey, hey hey

Any time I get the opportunity to warm up my voice (key change)
