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.

Do You Already Have Our Original Vocal Scales Collections?
The Looper vocal scales are a supplement to our original and larger vocal scales collections, also available by free download. More scales are added from time to time and everyone on our email list is notified when they are ready.
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.

Benefits of Using Looping Scales
Excellent for Quick Warm-Ups
Cover your best 2-octave range over and over upon each phrase.
Great for so Many Exercises
These scales work for nearly every exercise I do, from lip and tongue trills, to humming, and most open-mouth vocalizes.
Strengthen Your Breath Support
Long phrases (15 seconds) demand extra attention to your breathing technique.
The 2-octave tenor scale allows me to navigate my three main passaggios on each and every phrase.
