In this lesson, Jeanie Deva coaches the warm-up technique of "lip trills". A process where both lips are pressed together in a way so that some air, not all, can escape the mouth when exhaling, causing the lips to rattle and bounce off each other. She then puts the technique to a pitch.

We're gonna use the melody that I just showed you.…And about mid way, I'm gonna add a note.…So first we do this, with the lip trill,…and then it'll be, (piano music)…Let's get started.…(lips trilling)…Remember, easy on the volume.…(lips trilling)…Keep it going.…(lips trilling)…Don't over blow your lips, find the balance.…
(piano music)…Deep breath.…(lips trilling)…You may not need to breath in a whole lot,…because you aren't really using that much air…with such a short melody.…(piano music)…Take a breath.…
Yep.…(piano music)…Yep.…If you feel you just need to take a break,…don't worry about it.…Let the piano continue…and pick it up where ever you're ready.…
(piano music)…Yep, keep the balance.…It doesn't matter that you're singing in more range.…You don't need to push more air.…Maintain the balance and easy volume.…
Yeah, do that one again, now.…Okay.…One more, keep it going.…Let that vibration come here.…Yep.…(piano music)…we're gonna do two more of this melody.…
And last one.…Now we're gonna switch the melodies.…(lips trilling)…Yeah.…
