Product Description

Join over 100,000 singers who use Voice Lessons To Go to warm-up and train to!
Voice Lessons To Go is a great way to get going on your singing voice. Vocalize and Breath is the first of Ariella Vaccarino's successful four volume series.
Learning to sing is about much more than singing a song. Proper warm-ups, breathing, and posture are vital to achieving your singing goals while keeping your voice healthy. Daily vocal warm-ups, known as vocalizes, can enhance your breathing, improve the quality of sound you produce, and help you strengthen and extend your vocal range.
V.1 - Vocalize & Breath provides a thorough voice lesson consisting of a half hour of vocal warm-ups followed by breathing exercises and advice on posture and training. Ariella Vaccarino, creator of Voice Lessons To Go, guides you through the singing exercises, providing vocal examples to piano accompaniment.
For beginning singers,
Vocalize & Breath
is a great introduction and exposes those with little vocal training to the rudiments of singing instruction. The exercises are simple with less demanding ranges, easing you into voice training. And Ariella gives explanations of each vocalize that are clear and easy-to-follow.
* Teaches the basics of vocal exercises, known as vocalizing
* Teaches proper techniques to avoid injuring the vocal chords
* Focuses on breathing and how to use the body to sing engaging the diaphragm, correct muscles and breath
* Develops and strengthens the voice and vocal range
For professionals and more seasoned singers,
Vocalize & Breath is the perfect daily warm-up to gradually wake up your vocal instrument; engaging your diaphragmatic muscles through proper breathing, creating a strong support system which allows you to sound and feel better during and after a performance. Because the vocal ranges are less demanding, it is a great for vocalizing before rigorous singing.
* Ideal for simple vocalizing or pre-audition/ performance warm-up
* Breathing exercises help strengthen the voice and improve stamina for those with vocal fatigue
* Improves vocal tone, power, and range
* Designed to be a gentle vocalize, focusing on proper techniques that won t stress or damage your instrument
Ariella started Voice Lessons To Go to reach singers everywhere who for whatever reason; be it cost, time or location, could not get private voice lessons.
She is an accomplished Opera singer who attended USC and has sung on many films.

I have been singing rock and blues here in Los Angeles for many years. I bought these on a whim because I was having vocal problems during several gigs in the past few months. All those years spent screaming and growling had worn my voice out. Thanks to these CDs, I was able to incorporate new techniques into my singing. My band says I sound better than ever and I can do back-to-back sets in a single night again and still speak the next day. These CDs probably saved me a trip to the doctor. Highly recommended.

I am a piano teacher who also teaches voice, and this CD has been a lifesaver for me, it has helped improve problems with my voice students that
common popular exercises have failed to achieve. The breath control exercises especially have been an enormous help, and my students find them
not only challenging but fun as well. The warmup exercises are a little unique, bringing in tweet, hweet, and unique ways to improve sound production with exercises that combine air production with compression against the lips and teeth. The exercises as a whole help students with the lower register as well as the upper, and effectively improve power without yelling. A great program, I highly recommend!

I've wanted to sing for as long as I can remember, but never could afford voice lessons. I've recently invested in about 5 different vocal CDs to see if I could help myself learn a bit. Out of all the ones I purchased, this is by far my favorite and most used CD. I found the exercises to be simple, and Ariella explains everything before you attempt it. Some of the "visualizations" she gave before the exercises helped me a great deal. I especially liked the breathing exercises, very helpful.

Some vocal CDs just go through the exercise once and then expect you to be able to do it, but sometimes you like to know WHY the particular exercise is useful for vocal development. Don't worry, she doesn't go overboard with explaining though. The most important thing to keep in mind is to stay in your personal comfort zone. Everyone is at different levels of vocal development, so you must never strain to reach a note that you don't feel comfortable hitting. Ariella covers this in the intro. She cannot tell if you are straining or pushing, so you have to be the judge of what your body is telling you. Another thing to keep in mind is you don't have to try to be powerful when doing these exercises! I know that Ariella sounds loud over the piano when she is going through the exercises but I find it's the best to stay at a speaking level or softer. Just make sure you are comfortable, and don't try to push because you think you have to do these loudly. I find it counter-productive to try to do that. Do what works for you.

I recommend this CD for both people who are starting out and for those who already know how to sing but are just looking for a warm-up CD or a refresher. Of course nothing compares to a vocal coach that can assess your voice and give you specialized vocal lessons, and there is no magic CD that cures all your vocal problems, but this is definitely worth buying if you want to better your voice, no matter what level you're at.

I love when something comes in the mail from Amazon that is exactly as it was described before I bought it. I bought both volumes of "Voice Lessons To Go" for my own desire to improve my voice. (I was a choral singer through college and miss music a lot in my "adult world now".) Ariella Vaccarino's voice is awesome. Just is clearly a professional singer and teacher. The vocalizes are broken down clearly. She gives examples sings a few with you and then lets you go on your own with piano accompinament. There is nothing fancy about these CDs they are just voice lessons like described. The more you do them the stronger your voice will be.

The second volume was really fun for me because I remember doing solfegio in Choir. It may seem difficult at first. But practice makes perfect.

Several people have mentioned using these in a car. I have a different approach to incorporating them into my day.

I own both of these, have used them many times--and continue to improve with each use. I am not a singer, but always wished I could sing, and this material actually helped me develop a pleasing singing voice. As a teacher, my speaking voice is an important tool of my trade, and this also helped me strengthen my voice and project it more effectively.

My approach to incorporating these into my life is perhaps not ideal, but works for me. I start the day with them, before it has a chance to get so hectic that they are put aside. I start the breath CD before I get out of bed in the morning. Laying in bed on my back, freshly awakened, I am able to bring a strong focus to this part of my routine. Sometimes I don't have time for more than the first few exercises, but I still benefit from those I can do. It's a really nice way to wake up, and I am fully oxygenated before my feet hit the floor.

I do the ear training one in combination with exercising before I leave the house--get on my Total Gym and do squats, overhead pulls, etc., so I am still on my back. Or I stretch out using an exercise ball. I put that CD on my vcr, and keep the remote at hand so I can pause, rewind, etc. as needed. Some of the more challenging exercises require my full attention during the learning process, and these I save for the weekends when I'm not zooming off to work.

I realize that this might not be ideal for either the voice/ear training OR the weight training--but it's such a great way to start the day for me that I accept the trade-off. If I didn't get it done that way, it might not happen at all.
