Hi I’m Cari Cole. I’m a celebrity vocal coach and artist development expert. And I help artist find their voice, craft their music, and create successful music careers. I’ve worked with Donald Fagen from Steely Dan, Courtney Love from Hole, I’ve worked with the band Journey. I’m going to teach you how to be a better singer and performer

So you always want to complete your warm-up with an arpeggio. An arpeggio is a one, three, five, eight of the chord. Why is that important? Because it covers some range. And we want to finish the vocal warm-up with range. So that you can expand your range a little bit.

So we’re going to sing on some different vowels. We’re going to start with ah. So we’re going to sing ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah.

And notice how my voice, how my jaw is down? There is more of an oval or egg-shaped position of the mouth. This is really important. If you have trouble doing that, you might want to put two fingers at your chin and kind of gently pull your jaw down. You can also use your hand and hold your jaw down. That’s a little more of an advanced technique. But just propping your jaw with two fingers is a great way to start that. Most people don’t have much length in their jaw when they start singing. So, it’s something you have to work on. OK?

So we’re gonna sing ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah.

Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah.

Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah.

Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah.

Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah.

We’re gonna move to E now.

E, E, E, E, E, E, E.

E, E, E, E, E, E, E.

E, E, E, E, E, E, E.

Arpeggios are a really important way to again, expand the range and complete your warm-up. I just did the ascending scale. You can also come back down. And that’s an exercise that you should learn how to sing a capella and memorize. Once you get that memorized inside your ear and inside your voice, you’ll have much more flexibility, and your range will expand.

    I told my girlfriend about the importance of an egg-shaped mouth. After she
    worked on that, I have to admit, it worked! My range really DID expand!

    Here’s a problem you’re not addressing. You’re pushing your chest voice
    (full voice/lower register) up to a rather high note there. You are a
    soprano and so this is no problem for you. Women with lower voices reach
    the break in their voice lower than you. To stretch my chest voice up that
    high, as you are doing, would be bad for me in a warm up. I would do it
    only after a warm up. You are not addressing the break in the voice, the
    chest voice/head voice change over and how one identifies that.

  23. Learning to sing from this video is like taking cooking lessons from the
    guys at your local McDonald’s. If you are satisfied with Chicken McNuggests
    that’s fine, but you should know there is food beyond the golden arches. 

  24. Edna Chiclana says:

    why would her voice sound forced from her throat instead of her diaphragm ?
    i am not a vocalist though so I don’t know is this right way or not,,need
    to learn more.
