Breathe in smoothly over 8 beats.
Hiss out smoothly over 8 beats.
Extend this to 16 breaths.

Long notes, with dynamics. (Soft to loud, etc.)
Don't forget to warm up your whole vocal range, bottom to top!

Sing your scales with sol-fa.
Sing your scales to 'doo'.
CHALLENGE: Once you can sing the scale slowly, speed it up!
Start on songs after you have warmed up!
