Not sure which of our vocal cds to buy?
We'd recommend the Musicademy Esssential CD as the best warm up tool and ideal for people who have had limited professional vocals training previously - its very accessible and easy to work with. The Advanced Vocal Workout is a  much higher level workout and more suited to people who have previously had vocals training and really want to extend their ability.

I am learning how to sing, because of my monotone voice. My voice sounds robotic and flat. I took speech therapy and I had trouble with the intonation of my voice.

I am doing the exercises on this cd on a daily basis and I hope it will help with the problem of my voice.

We are in the midst of transition in our music department and one of the areas that we are focused is vocal basics. This has provided us with some ideas for warm-up.

Ease Of Use
I bought this product in order to do some last minute vocal training before heading into the studio with my band, and it definitely saved me some time when it came to recording the higher vocal parts. Not all of the tracks will be suited to everyone, but the 5, 10, and 15 minute playlist suggestions are a very useful addition. After some experimentation, I made my own playlist of the exercises I found to be most beneficial and enjoyable, and this made regular practice more manageable, and less daunting!
While some of the exercises get rather high for a male voice, I have found that singing them an octave deeper than the recording is a good way to strengthen the lower part of your range, before working up to those higher notes.
All in all, a really good product if you’re looking to give your vocal abilities a boost!

Great easy warm-ups! | Review by CL

Ease Of Use
I bought this a few years ago to use with my small volunteer-based church choir, and I wish I remembered to use it more often because it is great! My only comment is that the exercises don't cover a huge range (especially for a mixed men's-women's group) so you may not be able to follow the recordings exactly, according to the needs of your own group.

MUSICADEMY COMMENT:
Yes, this is a set of basic warm up exercises rather than for significant range development. You will find the range on all our other warm up CDs (Jo Noel Hartley's Workout, Sing Happy and the Musicademy Advanced Workout CD) much wider.

Gets my voice going | Review by Junie55

Ease Of Use
I bought this CD to help me warm up as I sing in a choir and we don't usually have time to warm up before rehearsing the praise and worship songs that we practice. I also needed a CD to help improve my voice. I've found this CD to be very effective and it always warm up my voice and has also strengthened my voice. I usually play it in the car on my way to work and church and sometimes at home, just to work out my vocals. I would strongly recommend it to others. It has been a great help to me and it's very good value for money.
