Thread Name: Singing exercises for a beginner
Subject: Singing exercises for a beginner
A friend was listening to a TV programme claiming that anyone could learn to sing. The tutor gave them exercises to do and finished with singing 3 blind mice.
Sounded like the kind of exercises our choir does to warm up (blowing raspberries etc).
She then had the idea I could teach her to sing (???!!).
Says her voice won't do what she wants it to.

Having listened to the workshop Carolyn Robson gave at Chester/Chippenham FF I wonder if she is having difficulty getting the notes in her high register (across the break???). She would like to be able to sing hymns in church properly. I think maybe Anglican hymns are quite high??

I don't really know what I'm talking about, so even if I could find some exercises online I wouldn't know if they were helpful. And perhaps the cost of singing lessons would be more than she'd want to pay.
Any ideas?
