Vocal Tip: Sirens

darrylm Uncategorized

I love a goo WHOOOOOO or WEEEEEEE up high! Its such a releasing sound. Try this one at home or in the car. It should require effort but no strain on the vocal chords at all! One you have the feeling of the whoooooooo or weeeeee up high, try sliding down into some lower notes. Keeping the sound consistent without it popping or breaking. If it does break, think about why? Is your face energised? Are you lips in the shape of the vowel? Where is your tongue? ( I will speak about tongue placement in another post) Also try the siren from low to high allowing the sound not to break or pop on the way up!
