Pop Warm-ups & Work-outs For Choir was created by Roger Emerson to provide a series of warm-ups for all choirs utilising classic rock and pop melodies to build vocal skills while having fun!

Each of the ten warm-ups provide a focus objective, suggested learning outcomes and related choral literature for younger and developing ensembles. Warm-ups may be used with changed or unchanged voices.

Concepts covered include: vowel shapes, resonance, breath control, head voice and falsetto, articulation and diction and much more!

Warm-ups are based on these pop classics: At the Hop, Do-Re-Mi, Don't Stop Believin', Good Vibrations, Hound Dog, Lean on Me, The Longest Time, Spinning Wheel, Thriller, Witch Doctor.

Musicroom Reviews

Rating Review
Customer Rating We had great fun with these especially as they were led with a CD very good for amateurs

Customer Rating This book is a very nice idea and welcome addition to the choral warm-ups literature.

Think of Beach Boys "Good Vibrations", now focus in on the opening "Oo oo oo oo oo" vocal riff. The book consists of 4-8 bar vocal exercises based on such riffs from pop standards, sung repeatedly while modulating through new keys.
Each exercise has suggested teaching points: 'focus', 'learning outcomes' and 'related literature'. The package is completed by a CD with vocals and accompaniment tracks.

The one disappointment is the single item that deviates from the model described above. "Do-Re-Mi" from the Sound of Music uses an entire verse repeated in six keys. It's a shame to devote nine pages of a 41 page book to this hackneyed song. What a shame we could not have another three 'pops' in its place.

But apart from that this book will be welcomed by choral directors working with both young singers and with community choirs.
