Especially in a workout where we’re covering a lot of range and focusing on many different coordinations and qualities in the voice, it’s important to bring our voice back to a neutral, “resting” state as we finish the workout. This doesn’t mean your voice will go back to an “un-warmed-up” state (far from it!), but rather, that we’re just bringing some extra calm and ease to the vocal muscles (and saying “well done, voice!”). Tips to make your warmdown most effective:
- Make sure you’re relaxed. Let your voice drift as you go through these exercises.
- The lip roll slides and humming should feel effortless. Nothing should feel forced or strained whatsoever!
- Don’t worry about the quality of your sound.
