My First Exercise

So I have begun voice lessons…

About a year and a half ago I started learning guitar from the excellent Justin Sandercoe online lessons. Over that time I have picked up harmonica as well.

But as I posted my videos some have said that I had a decent voice, so I decided to take voice lessons. I figured, why not try it for four months…

at any rate, my instructor split up my practice time into 2 components.

1) Warmup Exercises – 10 minutes

2) Songs – 20 minutes.

Personally, I believe that ANY method is better than no method, so this seems like a decent road to go down. I have been at it about a month and here is my practice routine:

Using the syllables MAH, MEH, MEE, MOE, MOO. and going up a half step for 5 times.

The last B is messed up here, can’t figure out how to do a ledger B..at any rate we go up a half step 5 times also. Finally, we cycle through the vowel sounds

  • MAH
  • MEH
  • MEE
  • MOE
  • MOO

The two songs I am working an are Pass Me Not and Just a Closer Walk With Thee.

The exercizes are helping, but I am soon to begin lessons with RNB Singing Lessons, who makes exercises out of the songs you wish to sing. But for now, this does seem to be working.
