How much time do you spend on warmups before getting to practicing your piece

And what type of warmups do you do? Do you also do vocalizes as well? I have some of Rosetti's vocalizes for sopranos and the warmups I do are appegios plus scales. I also have some vocal exercises that are from a Dutch site, but only a portion has been translated into English and my dutch is not that good.

hi! suspenseful, Its always better to spend sometime in the morning for warmup. it clears your throat of any blockages, keeping your voiceclear and fresh and makes you more confident to handle the nuances of your voice. you can practice chanting "OM" in single breath first thing in the morning. to know more ask me. great singing till then

hi suspenseful! honestly, as with anything, one should have warm ups before the actual regimen. however, sadly, i get bored with warm ups...anyway, i am not into music, but i do exercise from time to time. and instead of warming up, i go straight to the regimen. hoestnly, i don't know the difference..hehhee take care!

They are boring, but it is fun to see how far up the scale you can go.
