Preferably for a casual singer who doesn't want to exhaust her voice, ya know?

i'm no vocalist, but for any kind of tutorial / lessons / just learning something new I always liked the For Dummy's products

might be worth considering a coach / tutor rather than trying to learn on your own..experience often trumps knowledge tho, so just keep practicing and you'll be killin it in no time

The Dummies links are really good. The exercises in the first one are slightly different to what I learned but I tried a couple and they’re quite effective.

I would also recommend finding a coach, at least to start. If you’re a bit more disciplined than I was, you can take the exercises a coach will teach you and continue them on your own. I’m a fan of shower and car practice myself.

Like the above post, I feel like finding a vocal coach can really be helpful. During a session, you'll find exercises you really like and end up finding your own rhythm and schedule. LOL

There are lots of good vocal warm-ups on Youtube! Good for beginners, different vocal ranges (soprano, alto, tenor, etc.), type of singers (Broadway, opera, country, pop), etc. The Dummies links are good as well! Lots of good resources out there, the internet is a very vast place, all it takes is a little looking.

There are lots that you can find on YouTube. I prefer the exercises that Eric Arceneux offers though. That man is awesome!

Loads of tutorials and examples online, especially YouTube! Try to search for basic ones first and see if you can follow them. Do those first and when you've had an ample time to practice and you think you can do harder ones, then search for more difficult ones. I find exercising your vocals before singing is one great way to improve your singing. So don't skip out on that and good luck!
