Agility and Style 3: Descending Minor Pattern with Fall-off

Over the past four years, I have been intentional about finding or creating exercises that are technically and stylistically appropriate to my clientele, which is comprised of mostly non-classical singers. We want to develop register balance and connection, good legato, and good projection while also addressing some of the style elements as well.

The exercise featured in this clip is a fun and effective tool to train the ear and the voice. I use it with my students to prepare them for tackling riffs and runs as well as to work on smooth register transitions. This is the first level of the exercise – Level 2 follows in an upcoming video. Try it out- you’ll have a ball!!

Happy crooning!!
