Why do we need to warm up?
There are two important reasons why vocal warm ups should be part of your daily routine. First up, unsurprisingly, your vocal mechanism (that is your throat, mouth, respiratory system and supporting body parts) is mostly comprised of muscles, ligaments and tendons. In order to work at their best, as you would before working out at the gym, the whole mechanism needs to be warm. In practice, this means good blood flow, which helps everything to be limber, co-ordinated, impact resistant and supple.
