Vocal training is an athletic endeavor and you must always warm-up before you begin to train and sing. Some modern styles can challenge the performance envelope for the modern vocalist, therefore you must build physical strength and coordination to produce these modern vocal sounds properly to prevent injury and remain healthy. Never, under any circumstances, sing by “pushing” or forcing your body to do things it is resisting. Gripping, tightness, constriction and all forms of tension are to be avoided at all times. If you are experiencing any results that are anything other then complete freedom from tension and gripping, then you are not executing these techniques properly and you are not using your voice in a healthy way and should stop immediately. Singing with distortion can be dangerous if you are not trained properly on the techniques to do it in a healthier way, you can injure yourself.
If you are susceptible to throat injury, have a history of throat illness, smoke, or have not been approved by your doctor to train modern vocal techniques, you should consult a medical professional prior to viewing video tutorials, taking private vocal lessons or group classes with Mary Zimmer and VoiceHacks, LLC.
By participating in private one-on-one Skype video call vocal lessons or group classes with Mary Zimmer, you agree that there are inherent risks in vocal training and singing aggressively.

You can use these vocal exercises for your daily vocal warm up and gradually practice all the way through your vocal range (starting from the center note of your voice). You may sing the exercises using various vowel and consonant combinations, depending the goals you set each time (e.g. breath management, even and beautiful tone production, vocal placement and resonance, range development, articulation etc.).

00:00 Introduction

00:47 Exercise 1 – ‘Closed Mouth (Bouche Fermée)’

TIP: We focus on a ‘legato line’ when singing each phrase,
like we are keeping the notes connected in a ‘sound chain’!

02:41 Exercise 2 — ‘Two Note Scale’

TIP: We can practice this in different vowels and syllables,
always focucing at ‘legato line’ and good articulation!

04:52 Exercise 3 — ‘Portamento’

TIP: We practice ‘sliding’ smoothly at 5th interval, ‘tying’
and not ‘hitting’ the notes. Full breathing support is crucial!

06:47 Exercise 4 — ‘Staccato’

TIP: An arpeggio of staccato notes, focusing on tonal precision
and ‘staccato quality’. Observe how your abs participate!

The following are part of my originally created exercises,
perfect for practice singing these ‘exotic’ intervals!
(based on Scales used mainly in Greek and Eastern Mediterranean Music).

08:18 Exercise 5 — ‘Five Note Scale’

TIP: Here, we sing a pure legato phrase. Don’t forget to breathe
properly each time, and stay focused on ‘beauty of your sound’!

11:12 Exercise 6 — ‘Legato with Ornaments’

TIP: I often sing this at the end of Vocal Warm Up to relax.
Remember the previous Tips and …. Sing it from your Soul!

NOTE: These videos are for demonstration purposes only. All vocal exercises should be performed according to your personal needs under the guidance of your vocal coach, in order to gradually develop and master your vocal technique in a safe, natural way!
