This scale works on the agility of your vocal cords. Your voice may well feel tired at first, but persevere. It will become easier over time.
Again using the same consonant/vowel combination of
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, (keychange)
Leh, leh, leh, leh, leh, leh, leh, leh,leh
Law, law, law, law, law, law, law, law, law,
Lee, lee, lee, lee, lee, lee, lee, lee, lee
Loo, loo, loo, loo, loo, loo, loo, loo, loo
and repeat a variation as the scale gets higher
As you get more confident with this exercise, you could try dropping the consonant and do the exercise just on the vowel sound:Ah, Eh, Aw, Ee, Oo (one sound for each keychange)
