Vocal Calisthenics

Students will build stamina and speed in the vocal line with this two-hour vocal workout covering three octaves with an emphasis on singing scale and chord patterns on modal, blues, pentatonic, chromatic, and other scales. This practice will help eliminate vocal breaks and smooth out registers. We will also work on optimum breathing and support.
