Vocal Warmups and Its Effectiveness in Professional Singers

John O Pious | Satish Kumaraswamy [10]

Abstract: An occupational or professional voice user is someone whose voice is required for their employment. Warming up, stretching, and relaxing the muscles of the vocal chords are all basic vocal warm-up exercises. Voice when perceived by different people has different effects or varies in terms of quality subjectively. These changes can be based on the pleasing quality, clear articulation, appropriative loudness, expressiveness, unobtrusive pronunciation and dialect. Minimal knowledge is available till now about the acoustic factors that vary during the vocal warm-ups in different conditions. Therefore, the current study focuses on finding the variances and levels of variations among different acoustic variables. Voice samples were collected from the participants at three different conditions and different factors were analyzed. The responses were recorded with the help of a studio quality headphone with mic and were analyzed in PRAAT software. The obtained measure of Acoustic parameters was recorded and was analyzed statistically and was comparison was done. The results showed insignificance of the data when undergone comparison and the initial hypothesis was proved wrong.
