In Episode 81, Sara takes you through an exercise she calls the “Ngya Ngyas” (but her college students call the “Roommate killer”), to help bring your sound in mix register “forward”, or more “in the mask” creating a stronger, more resonant, less breathy sound.
In this episode, Sara answers a student’s question about lip trills/lip rolls, and shows you how you how to execute the exercise as a warmup. Sing along!
The idea for episode 55 came to me in the shower, actually. I don’t usually actually sing in the shower, which is funny, because I think it’s where I sang the most as a kid. But I was trying to brainstorm my students’ questions on how to get better at singing riffs/runs/melismas/licks. And it came to me. Why not just make up a lick and use it as an etude, or exercise? Perfect. Watch this video and sing not only this exercise, but you can make any lick you’re working on into an exercise of your own. Just remember to slow it down before you can speed it up.
In this episode, Sara introduces you to a new warmup that really works the entire range, from bottom to top. It covers an octave and a half, and functions as a way to work the lower and higher range to blend them together more freely.
In this episode, Sara shares a new warmup with you. Keep practicing, this one can be a toughie!
