Vocal Warm Up Exercises – Daily Vocal Warm Ups – Vocal Tutorial – Ken Tamplin Vocal Academy


Hey guys welcome back again to Ken Tamplin
Vocal Academy. I got a lot of requests for people asking
if I could give them some really cool daily exercises to get warmed up. So, absolutely! Let’s get started on an “A” vowel, and
it’s just a simple triad, we’ll start off slow, and we’ll build gradually as we go,
okay? Ladies, you’ll be up the octave, so it’s
going to be like this: Lay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay… Okay? Next one… Okay, this one’s a little more expansive,
it’s Lay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah,
ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah… All right, now, ideally, eventually, I’d
like to get it up to speed like this, so you can kind of play with this on your own, but… Lay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay,
ay, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah… Right? But for our purposes here, we’re going to
slow it down a little bit. Lay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay,
ay, ay, ay, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah… Now, I’m going to do a couple more of these. If you guys can’t do them all, don’t worry
about it. Or if you can’t do them back to back because
you don’t have enough breath, don’t worry about it. But I just want to, you know, give you permission
to maybe only do half or something, and then wait until the next time the next one comes
up. Let’s do another one. Okay. This next scale is a little more long-tailed,
and is going to require a little more breath and breath control, and it toggles between
Aye and Ah. So, I’ll go ahead and do it first, and then
we’ll continue. Here we go. Lay, ay,ay,ay,ay,ay,ay,ay,ay… Ah. Lay… Ah… Okay. One more. Okay, this scale is a little similar, but
it has a little different ending, and it’s on the EE vowel, so it’s going to go like
this. EE, EE, EE, EE… All right. This should help you guys get warmed up, and
we have more on your way!

  1. Here are some exercises you can do every day to grow your voice. Keep your throat open as you go up the scale and come back down. Use these to warm up before performances and to keep your voice limbered-up! Let me know what other help with your voice you would like to see in future tutorials, and don't forget to make your requests for vocal song demonstrations!

  2. These exercises are great and I'm noticing my throat opening up more when I sing as been doing daily. My duo partner has noticed improvements in my voice and I feel the tone of my voice is better. Thank you Ken! Julian.

  3. ken iam a metal man the hard stuff could you do pantera or metallica or maybe something harder like testament otherwise your the best ever love your videos ive increased my vocal range

  4. Hello! I have a mucus every morning and I don't know if I should rid of it or not? Does it affect my singing? Or it will may change your voice? Thank you 🙂

  5. I find it best with these exercises to copy not just the voice, but the tongue relaxation, the bulging of the veins in the neck, and obviously the eye posture of the great maestro.

  6. Hi Ken ! Im baritone. Do i have to switch to mixed voice in the high notes while doing this? Or all chest? In high notes around b5 i feel pain

  7. Quick question can you still do this warm up exercises if you don't know how to use a proper breathing technique ? Love your teachings

  8. I appreciate your generosity and expertise! I am a single parent of a child with special needs and singing and guitar are my saving grace. I wish to perform and write, the tools you give freely are the best! I've been watching you tube vocal tutorials about 3 years now, you are at the top of my best of the best list! The main reason I began looking up vocal videos is because my 13 yo child still can not speak, traditional Therapy has not worked, she has a great voice and can belt vowels so, it's not like she doesn't have a voice. So I figured I would educate myself about singing and the mechanics thereof etc. What a journey! Thank you sooo much for all the details and the vocabulary etc. you teach.

  9. Thanks ken i found your exercises more comfortable to my voice and i'm not straining as i hit those high notes..😊😊😊

  10. Ken Tamplin you asked for requested videos well i got a good one for you… can you make a video "how to sing while dancing" how to sing with allmost no breath and still sound good 😉

  11. Jeepers creepers, where'd you get those peepers, jeepers creepers whered you get those EYES LOL I came for the vocal coaching but I'm staying for the eyeballs

  12. Sir, how can we regain our voice ,
    when we stop singing for a couple of months and our vocal range has gone down

  13. Hey Ken, I was wondering if you can do a reaction video to a band called heavens basement, the song title is called nothing left to lose, look up their lives versions that are acoustic, it seems to me that when they sing this song they really strain or struggle to get the words out or something and I am wondering if I am just seeing it wrong or am I really seeing what I think I’m seeing there, you are such a wonderful singer and you definitely know your stuff that is for dang sure, I am just baffled at your vocal range, you do not seem like you have any strain at all when you sing even at those high notes, I hope to better myself in that department as I try to become a better singer, I have learned a lot just by watching your videos on YouTube, Thank you for all of the awesome videos

  14. had to visit this video again. thanks Ken!! What with the ad for the other vocal coach on the front of your vid?

  15. Realy love your videos and lessons bro. I can definately hear a difference in my own singing. Still a work in progress. I have one question though. At what volume does one do these exercises? I use to do it a lot louder than my speaking voice volume and found myself choking or my voice going hoarse quickly. Should it be done slightly louder than the speaking voice? Im in south-africa and Im busy saving up for your coarse

  16. the ending of this video always makes my ear bleed. volume difference from talking to screaming geezus

  21. How high could you sing comfortably without warming up? And does time needed for warming up our voice become shorter after practising this every day?

  22. Hello Mr. Tamplin! So I'm singing for my graduation on June 7th and have to sing a song that goes all the way up to a high B4! Generally, I'm a tenor. How long should I practice everyday until then and how should I practice on the day of the performance? Thanks! c:

  23. Wow, thank you for this, Ken! I got your email with this video just when I was about to commit to a 15 minute daily vocal workout – it's been going well so far. Interestingly, it was only when I accidentally sped up the video 2x and heard you do those exercises, that I could appreciate how natural, effortless and even all your notes are.

  24. Wow, first time I've come across some fun and interesting vocal warmups! Love it! (these definitely shined a light on how much my breathing needs to improve though, haha!) Thank you for posting.

  25. Dude I could sample these scales and make a beat with it! Lol that would actually sound pretty cool lmao.

  27. Hi Ken, I see lots of good links to info but I'm looking for your how to sing better course ? I maybe over looking the link but could you point me in the right direction. Thank you

  28. I have been singing for 25 yrs in bands and as a solo artist. These are very good scales. Even though for a singer with experience. so new singers should not be surprised or discouraged doing these exercises.Keep at it. It will come in time. thanks Ken

  32. I’m currently prepping for leading Sunday service using this video and I couldn’t help but notice that at this point in time you have 666 K followers roughly speaking.

    All I’m saying is “TO HELL WITH THE DEVIL”

  34. I have been working with Ken's courses and lessons for about a couple of months now, Ken is the man, I feel very fortunate to have his instruction, I only wish I could have studied with him years ago or could now, but for now, I will keep working with his DVD's Thank you ken also your stories and commentaries are fun and interesting.

  36. I love this videos of learning to sing with you. Do you have breath exercises? To hold long tones with breath and other stuff 🙂

  37. Hi Master Ken,

    I just finished reading one of your emails.

    I feel this burst of energy and excitement every time I understand more and more the mysteries and miracles of good singing.

    Just dropped by to say thank you.

    Ps: that note about slapping your wrist and saying “Bad MICHAEL” made me laugh.

  38. MR.KEN…I'M RAJNEESHDEV FROM INDIA… I JUST CAME ACROSS YOUR VIDEO AND TRIED TO SING …..IT WAS REALLY ASTONISHING …. MAGICAL CHANGE AND IMPROVEMENT IN MY SINGING…. PEOPLE JUST LOVED MY PERFORMANCE….SIR…SALUTE TO YOU… I'M JOINING YOUR COURSE… BUT WOULD DEFINITELY MEET YOU ONCE IN MY LIFE… YOU ARE JUST AMAZING…. YOU GAVE ME SOMETHING WHICH I LONGED FOR…IF AT ALL YOU RESPOND TO MY POST… I'LL BE THRILLED WITH JOY…MY IDOL IN SINGING IS KISHORE KUMAR SIR…THE LEGEND PLAYBACK SINGER FROM BOLLYWOOD…YOU ARE NEXT TO HIM….THANKS A LOT…GOD BLESS YOU

  39. I've got to laugh when these fake singing coaches put ads on Ken's channel. There is nobody who teaches like Ken. He is a master singer with decades of study.

  40. Full of expression…i will surely add this to my daily vocal exercises….as a matter a fact I am just going to go ahead and sub

  41. You said ladies… but I'm higher singer so I can do the higher notes somewhat I am trying to learn to belt instead of being a loser soft singer.. So tired of people making fun of me for singing the songs that I do.

  42. Sometime, before going on the stage is not time for warm up. My method is simply. As an first 2 songs (or even 3) I sing easier songs which are on the lower notes. Is it some wrong? For example: manager said: You go from 19:00… In 19:00 he said again: You go from 19:45. This problem is pretty often. …Thanks for reply…..👀

  43. Hi Ken! Just wanted to take a second to thank you for this daily warm-up. I use it daily and feel it has become indispensable in my singing process. I can really feel a difference after a single warm up! I also feel more confident afterwards to go sing with others, like my voice is less likely to crack etc. Also, I can truly feel a difference in my overall tonal quality and singing strength. Thank you so very much! You are a huge inspiration my friend!

  44. Hi ken, i want to ask if exercises will be enough if I do them on regular basis fore like one hour to develop a nice chest voice and I also follow 'How to rock your chest voice' video of yours
    And once again thanks for this amazing content

  45. I have a recorded track of “Hello” by Evanescence that I did a cover on. I think you’ll like it. Can I email it to you? I promise it won’t make you cringe. If so, what email can I send it to?

  46. Day 42 of daily exercises

    I have memorised the intro.

    Hey guys welcome back again to Ken Tamplin Vocal Academy. I got a lot of requests from people asking if I could give them some really cool daily exercises to get warmed up and… absolutely! So let's start in an "A" vowel, just a simple triad. We'll start out slow and we'll build up as we go. Ladies, you'll be up the octave and it will be like this:

  47. Awesome! Love that you have this Vid. Because I do not have a vocal coach and after days an days of doing the same warm ups Im like now what else do I do… lol 💕

  48. I'm a self taught punk singer always been against lessons, but your videos helped the past week hurt my throat a few weeks ago starting to get my range back. I like that you sing rock music videos from a choir style singer doesn't really give me much I can use singing the music I do lol.

    Appreciate all these videos you put up you're actually fun to watch and listen to, even with things I already know and can do I enjoy watching.

  49. I love singing and my biggest dream is to become an artist. I've been trying for a while but nothing has really worked. I'm hoping your videos will help, I will come back to this comment to update for a few weeks and probably months. Thank you.

  50. Hi Ken, when I do lip trills exercise, I sometimes don't hit the right note in the scale. Is hitting the right notes crucial for beginners or is it more important to get the feel for the exercise first? Thanks
