I got this question from Theodore following our last post, which included an audio example of the Lip Trill exercise. Theodore wanted a little more detail about the exercise and I bet there are others out there with the same question.
Should a lip trill be done softly, and is this a good exercise for an over worked tired voice?
Here are some notes about the Lip Trill exercise which may help:
- It’s about the best warm-up there is. It’s also a healthy cool down after singing.
- It should always be started gently, and the feeling of freedom should remain. Move up and down your whole range to feel that wonderful “connected” feeling.
- Sing your songs on the Lip Trill to help learn what all the notes should physically feel like. Then, duplicated those vibrating sensations when using words.
- The Lip Trill can be very therapeutic to a tired voice. It’s also the safe way to tip-toe back into singing after laryngitis starts to heal.
Here Is the Exercise Again for Those Who Missed It:
Hope this helps! Keep your questions coming.
