How do I use them?
Use the exercises on the CD carefully and regularly and you'll gain huge improvements in range, accuracy and flexibility of the notes when you sing. These exercises will help you to build a solid foundation in the techniques of singing, that will really open up your sound to its full resonance AND most importantly, they're presented in a varied and fun way.

What's included?
The CD is also accompanied by a booklet with more explaination of how to perform the exercises. Use these with your vocal coach and you'll be ready for anything.

1. Dominant Scale - improving articulation, and pitching accuracy at a fast tempo
2. Minor 9 Arpeggios - flexibility and range, shifting across registers, moving in a cycle of 4ths
3. Dominant 9 Arpeggio/Scale - aural awareness of guide tones within the chord, using a swing feel
4. Minor 9 Arpeggio/Scale - check your accuracy and aural differentiation against the previous exercise
5. 3rd and 4th Intervals - practising varying intervals, made much harder using vowel sounds
6. Arpeggios over ll V l - aural awareness and pitching accuracy over a ll V l progression
7. Fast Scale with Major and Minor 3rds - up tempo agility exercise, also improving breath control
8. Major/Minor 7s/9s - focuses on accurate singing of Major vs Minor arpeggios, and developing swing feel
9. Descending Intervals - agility pitching increasing intervals - easier with 'doo-bah', harder with 'yeah'
10. Fast 5 Note Scale over ll V l - articulation and high speed agility, over a ll V l chord progression
11. Minor 9 Scale/Arpeggio - develops awareness of guide tones within a Minor 9 chord
12. Major 9 Scale/Arpeggio - Major/Minor differentiation, in comparison with the previous exercise
13. Arpeggio over Major and Dominant chord - keeping the voice connected across a wide range
14. Octave Jumps - harder version of the Intermediate level
15. Chromatics - accuracy singing semitones: harder and faster version of the Intermediate level

Why the Theory?
A little knowledge about intervals, scales, keys and chords can dramatically improve your accuracy when singing. Think of it as a shortcut to success. Making music fundamentals part of your repertoire will not only enhance your singing and listening skills, but will make communicating with musicians more effective. Using your ears, knowledge and vocal skills you can develop your resources to their full potential, and become an accomplished singer who musicians take seriously.
