Russell Robinson & Jay Althouse - Alfred Music Publishing
, Here's the easiest-to-use book of warm-ups ever, with enough warm-ups for years of rehearsals! There are 211 warm-ups in all, carefully organized into eight practical categories: Warm-Ups to Begin the Rehearsal; Transitional Warm-Ups; Warm-Ups with Fun Texts and Syllables; Chordal Warm-Ups; Warm-Ups Featuring Interval Training; Jazz/Pop/Swing Warm-Ups; Just for Church Choirs and Rounds. Dozens of photos, which illustrate correct posture and vowel formation, highlight the five chapters of insightful text, entitled: Why Warm Up?; Warm-Up Considerations for Different Age Groups; The Warm-Up Before the Performance; Procedures and Precautions and Rest and the Voice. Whether you're an experienced choral director or just starting your first job, you'll want to have this valuable resource handy at all times, and your choir will benefit from it, too!
