Free Scales and Warmups for Singers
Harmonised Singing Scales
Free downloads to help your singing practice.
There are no hard and fast rules about how you should use our harmonised scale accompaniments. You can experiment and find your own way or ask a voice coach or teacher to suggest how they might work best for you.
They are designed to elucidate the musical colours present in each key, and entrain a reliable schema of harmonic expectations when moving up or down the scale. Great for beginners, but with something to offer to all ears, we hope.
They are probably a bit slow to attempt in a single breath, but you might like to try a breath each way. There's a fair bit of dramatic potential to be discovered too: try dressing up and embodying a character - they'll even form a exercise for your acting skills.
Since Michael's unique harmonised scales went on to the site in April 2007, we're delighted to say that they've been accessed by hundreds of thousands of singers and musicians worldwide and many have got in touch to tell us how much they've helped their practice. You can download them too.
If you find any of our free resources for singers helpful, we'd love to hear from you.
