Kerry Heisler has written a wonderful collection of warmups for young voices, Strictly Warmups. This collection of vocal warm-ups was developed from a need identified in the author’s private teaching practice. This is the digital version to use with computer/ projectors, IWB, or SMART Boards. There are five different sets of warmups. Each set includes a physical warm-up, breath awareness, and exercises to work on range, dipthongs, vowels, diction, and swing rhythms.
