The Voice Exercise Book: The Warm-Ups

By Jeannette Nelson

Audio disk £10.99£8.80

Essential warm-up exercises for anyone who wants to use their voice more effectively. An accompaniment to The Voice Exercise Book, the accessible and straightforward guide to good voice production.

If you're using your voice in a professional capacity – as a performer, a public speaker, a teacher, or even for long hours over the telephone – then warming up is an essential part of ensuring best practice and vocal health.

On this CD, Jeannette Nelson, Head of Voice at the National Theatre, provides three complete and easy-to-use voice warm-ups that she uses with actors and non-actors alike. Simply press play, and follow the instructions, either on your own or in a group.

Each warm-up helps you to:

  • release physical tension and prepare your breathing
  • open up your voice and improve your resonance
  • get the speech muscles in your mouth working freely

There is also a warm-down for after you have been using your voice, to release any tensions, re-establish good muscle action, and keep healthy for the next time.

The CD can be used on its own or in conjunction with The Voice Exercise Book.

The Voice Exercise Book: The Warm-Ups is also available as a digital download from Amazon and from iTunes.
