Part 2 of a lesson where Jeannie describes, and gives a brief history on, what cool-downs are and how they are important. She describes how the vocal folds get fat and full of blood during performances and that doing cool downs are done to help reduce the swelling and help keep your voice healthy.
- Some of the best cool down exercises…are ones that you've already used…for warm up and that I've taught you earlier…in this whole section.…Things like lip trills.…Wonderful.…But you can do lip trills like this for a cool down.…(trills lips)…So you kind a go around in a circle.…That's how I think of it.…(trills lips)…And when that feels good, you go up a little note more.…(trills lips)…But it's always a short, small interval.…
Not (hums).…You don't do wide intervals.…It's just little by little by little by little.…Don't be impatient.…(trills lips)…That worked out okay, good.…Now go up a little bit more.…We're not gonna use a huge range for cool down.…Just enough so start feeling the difference…in your voice when you're doing lip trills.…So the next would be,…(trills lips)…Maybe one more for me.…(trills lips)…And that would be enough.…
Maybe I'd come back down.…I mean I can feel the difference…in my voice right now.…It feels really good.…You might at this point want…to pause the video and try that out yourself…even though maybe you haven't been singing a little bit.…
