Harmonize Sing-Along Vocal Exercises
will help you to grow vocally and musically.
These ten, simplistic exercises are designed to gently warm up your voice, strengthen your breath support, and help you develop a strong sense of the musical context with will improve your pitch, musicality, and artistic expression.
The 10 EXERCISES amount to over 45 MINUTES OF TRAINING. You can use them as a whole or create your own, tailored program.
You will also receive a VOCAL GUIDE TRACK for each exercise.
The vocal guide track will help you to learn the melody of each exercise and decide where to take pauses/where to breathe.
The piano only tracks still have the piano playing your melody for easier orientation but leave room for your own interpretation and full freedom of expression.
You will also get a detailed ESSENTIAL GUIDE that will help you to get started and a WORKSHEET with instructions for every exercise.
Why I developed this exercise program
How to use
You can use the exercises to warm up for rehearsals and singing repertoire or generally to wake up your voice and get ready for the day. They come in handy whenever you need to prepare yourself for a vocal challenge: concerts and shows, meetings, presentations, rehearsals, and training.
Use the exercises to relieve stress after a long workday or to relieve your vocal chords after exhaustion and strain. Humming and using the straw are ideal for this purpose.
Create your own technical routine by picking your favourite exercises and setting weekly goals. Try to focus on a few aspects at a time: Sound, pitch, breath, body support, musicality, presence, etc.
These exercises are also ideal to form a daily habit of mediation: get in a comfortable, relaxed position like sitting on a chair or lying on a Yoga mat. Start the audios and gently, without pressure, sing along. Focus on your breath and the movements of your body. Focus on the rhythm and melody, and experience how the stress and restlessness melt away.
Use them just before you go to bed for better sleep.

Make singing part of your everyday life
What makes Harmonize Exercises different from other exercises, or from practising with a piano or acapella?
Exercising just by yourself can be tedious and frustrating. Maybe you don’t have easy access to a piano. If you’re not proficient on the piano, it can be difficult to create a sensible routine, to fully focus on your sound, and to track progress.
If you are using other exercise tracks, they are often repetitive, uninspired, and tedious.
Harmonize Exercises are inspired by original music based on the film scores I created for some of my work.
They are carefully crafted, redesigned and tested to support the growth of your voice, maximise your breath support, and bring out your inherent musicality.
A perfect balance between original music and exercise, these tracks are not only fun to sing along, they are also helpful if you’re trying to relieve stress or maintain your physical and emotional balance.
Most importantly, Harmonize Exercises will make it easy for you to sing every day. Make singing part of your everyday life!
