Pick a fricative consonant such as 'v' and pulse five times on it. Start loud and get softer, or vice versa. Work through other fricative consonants: j (as is 'vision'), z, th (as in 'there').
Sing an arpeggio using the pattern 1-3-5-4-2-(7)-1. Sing the pattern twice, first to a legato 'oo' then a staccato 'ah'. Move the starting note up or down by a semitone and repeat.
Hum a major scale to the fifth, using a pattern 1-2-1-3-1-4 etc, and sliding between notes. Move the starting note up or a down a by a semitone and repeat.
Sing a descending major scale to 'ninga ninga, ninga ninga, ninga ninga, ning ...' (breathing halfway through). Move the starting note up or down by a semitone and repeat. Focus on getting plenty of tone in the 'ng' sound and keeping the halfway breath quick and silent.
Start on a single held note to 'ah'. Moving only your lips (not your tongue), change the vowel sound to 'oh' then 'oo', then back again. Then start on 'ah' again and, moving only your tongue, change the vowel sound to 'eh' then 'ee' then back again, so you end up with 'ah-oh-oo-oh-ah' moving only your lips, then 'ah-eh-ee-eh-ah' moving only your tongue. Focus on keeping the 'ah' space in the mouth and throat and not 'pinching' the sound when you change vowels.
