What are Looping Vocal Scales?


Instead of moving up or down a half step each time the piano scale is repeated, looping scales simply loop the same range over and over (have a listen to the samples below).

Each exercise is approximately three minutes in length. Set the play mode to "loop" in your audio player for extended use. I often loop a two-octave scale for 30 minutes of continuous exercises over the full two-octave range with each vocalization.

IMPORTANT: Please consider "voice type" of the mp3 files as a guideline. What is more important is the range of notes covered by the scale (clearly labeled in each mp3 file name) and what range of your voice you care to work on. You will almost certainly work with scales from multiple voice types.

I sang for 25 years without any vocal training and never improved. Once I dedicated myself to regular vocal training my voice began to improve every single day, even during long periods without private lessons. In fact, my rate of improvement is now accelerating, rather than slowing down.

Long phrases (15 seconds) demand extra attention to your breathing technique.

Passaggio Training
