    Yeah, I play the piano so I used to do scales daily, twice a day. But I felt that doing scales only made sure one would not sing off tune. It felt that it contributed little in developing aspects of the voice like Vibrato, or Falsetto.

    Pitch yes definitely, but a combination of pitch and dynamics across a scale range can be pretty difficult. Combines those with hannon and you have quite the vocal work out. I guess in this case, its not what you sing, its how you sing it. Heck, you can make a complex practice out of "Merry had a Little Lamb" if you wanted to.

    Ex. While just using the first part of the song, Standard Sing, then in pianissimo, and in forte chest, then forte head, then crescendo to end of song, then decrescendo, then in staccato, then intonating between staccato and legato while keeping it pianissimo, THEN doing all the above in each scale degree. All the above will help with breathing control, pitch control, and awareness of dynamics.
