It can be difficult as a beginning vocalist to realize the value of a warm up. A beginner might not know what exercises to do for their warm ups and how long to do them for. As a result, many singers get in the habit of either not warming up enough or “warming up” for so long that their voices are already experiencing signs of tiredness by the time the singers actually want to start singing. What’s more, these habits tend to carry over to when these singers become more advanced and they start dealing with more demanding music. In the video above, Robert Lunte answers a question about a hypothetical professional singer experiencing “rawness” and discomfort in their voice after only a few gigs in a row. In his answer, Maestro Lunte ultimately determines that the source of the singer’s problem is partially vocal technique and stamina management during warm up routines.
