Preparing to Sing-Fun Vocal Warm-Ups - Key Stages 1 and 2

(1)
**Preparing to Sing-Fun Vocal Warm-Ups Suitable for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 pupils. A set of warm-up vocal exercises for young voices** Think of warming up as exercising for your voice. What happens to your voice when you warm up is actually similar to what happens to athletes’ muscles when they stretch and exercise. Warming up loosens those muscles, helps to remove excess mucous and reduces the risk of injury. Regular vocal warm-ups also keep your voice in shape. Just as with other muscles in your body, you need to develop your singing muscles to work efficiently and as they become stronger, your voice will too. Introducing a warm-up routine before you sing will improve the sound quality of your performance. You do not have to have a musical background to deliver these activities. This resource is in two sections. Part one should always be worked through before singing and part two includes a varied selection of ten exercises to choose from when preparing your pupils to sing.
