26 exercises to increase the tone, range and power of your voice.
A comprehensive vocals work-out for use at home, in the car and before you sing.
The CD contains an extensive range of breathing, warm-up, diaphragm development and vocalisation exercises with recommendations for 5, 10 and 15 minute warm ups for when you don't have time to play the entire CD.

The CD has been commissioned by Musicademy and was devised and taught by guest tutor Kate Silber. Kate is head of vocals at Nexus, a UK based music colleges. She brings her considerable teaching and performance experience to these exercises. See the cover below for a content listing.

Not sure which of our vocal cds to buy?
We'd recommend the Musicademy Esssential CD as the best warm up tool and ideal for people who have had limited professional vocals training previously - its very accessible and easy to work with. The Advanced Vocal Workout and Jo Noel's Vocal Workout CD are much higher level workouts and more suited to people who have previously had vocals training and really want to extend their ability. Sing Happy is great for more classically trained singers, and as it's let by a man, great for guys too (although guys will be fine with our other CDs too).
