Great vocal warm-up exercises from the National Theatre.

National Theater is an online site for on-stage actors, and thanks to @AleneCookeVO's Tweets I am able to share these vocal warm-ups with you.

Fantastic video!  It reminds me of my theater vocal training exercises in college. "Thanks for the memories," and the very useful videos.

Excellent!  More wacky sounds coming from my studio... my neighbors think I've completely lost my mind.  Thanks for the post Zurek.  Very helpful.

Thanks Zurek! Very helpful. I throw in some yoga up and down dogs in between and this really gets the blood flowing and clears my head!

Thanks Zurek A reminder that before a full day in the studio - this is the *least* we should do for our instrument.

A great post! Puts a different range to ones projection, but will make close up mic work that much more wholesome.

Whoaaaaaa. Can't get any more authoritative than the NT! Cheers. (Need to get tix for Frankensteinon there currently - sold out in 2 seconds!!)

Although - I find jumping up & down & jogging on the spot followed by a feww deep in/exhalations does the trick if I'm feeling abit foggy before hitting the mic. Oh, & I never sit down to record. Interpretive dance is pretty funny tho :))

Great warm ups to free the upper body and extend the range of our instrument. The biggest difference is that we do our work in small rooms and must let the mic does the bulk of the amplification work. In theatre, the voice must project to the back of the house.
