Find time to warm up your voice and body before every practice session, rehearsal and performance. Skipping this essential step is physically dangerous. Think of it this way: Would you run 5 miles without first warming up?

This is a wonderful bit of advice for singers of all ages as well as the young! The endless singing all day long in preparation for gigs, shows, etcetera can be damaging to your voice! If you are after longevity vocally-use your vocal chords sparingly, and practice for about 20 minutes at a time-then give it a rest!
You can do this a couple of times a day for the best conservation of your voice. Warm up before a gig, especially physically-but limit your vocal exercise to a few minutes only!
