How to make your choir sound awesome - the ultimate warm-up book
Described as the ultimate warm-up book, How to make your choir sound awesome contains everything that a choir leader needs to improve the sound quality and vocal health of their choir. Starting with an introduction discussing the importance of vocal warmups, the book gives expert advice on vocal technique. The "Why we do this?" sections increase depth of understanding and knowledge for everyone, regardless of experience.
Not only for improving the sound of your choir and for vocal health but also for physical and mental well-being, warm-ups provide an opportunity to gather focus, create a positive environment, and boost camaraderie. The innovative "flaps" section of the book allows the choir director to mix and match the warm-ups from three sections: Movement & Alignment, Breathing & Airflow, and Vocalisation. The exercises comprise science, experience, practical advice, and a whole lot of humour. Lucy & Suzzie understand how important it is for choir leaders to not only know how to do the exercises but also why we do them, so a clear and concise explanation is given for each exercise.
How to make your choir sound awesome also includes useful tips, chord progressions for accompaniments, and energising exercises. The 'Brain Workout' section works on developing cognitive agility and maintaining focus should you experience a rehearsal slump. Twenty songs are included at the back of the book which can be incorporated into your warm-up session or used in a performance. Thirteen of these songs can be photocopied to use with your choir.
