You probably already know all about vocal warm-up exercises… but do you know the importance of cooling DOWN your voice after singing? The “vocal cool-down” is a great way to end the night if you’ve been singing for a long time, such as at a performance or gig.
In this video, teacher Francisca M. demonstrates three easy exercises to try out…
Video Recap: How to Do a Vocal Cool-Down
- The Siren Wail – move from your highest (comfortable) note on an “ahh sound,” sliding down to the octave below
- Chords – move from your highest note down 5 steps
- Bubble Trill – Similar to your vocal warm-up exercises, incorporate lip trills into your cool-down
As Francisca mentions, try to spend around 10-15 minutes cooling down your voice after a performance or gig, until your voice feels comfortable and normal again.
