Wee / Goo Mixed Descending Scales Exercise Demo

The Wee and Goo Mixed Descending Scales are light voice exercises designed to strengthen those delicate coordinations.

WEE

Keep the tone light and clear, not breathy. Sing in a head-voice-dominant tone, even down into the lower notes, never clunking into chest voice. Aim for the sound of EE, but a slightly more open shape of IH inside the mouth.

GOO

Use just a light touch of the G consonant to help you get compression as you start the scale. Keep the tone light and clear, not breathy. Keep the mouth narrow and a bit of a hooty quality in the tone to keep the larynx slightly lowered. Sing in a head-voice-dominant tone, even down into the lower notes, never clunking into chest voice. Aim for the sound of OO, but a slightly more open shape of UUH inside the mouth.

Remember, don’t overthink the vowel modifications. They are tools to be used on an as-needed basis!
