Breathe to sing workshop
Everyone knows how to breathe. We tend not to be aware of our breathing because it involves a shallow inhalation and uniform exhalation plus a brief pause, process that we repeat on an ongoing basis and we do it in “Autopilot”.
Breathing during singing is another story. Not only you need to keep breathing to live, but you need to maintain proper posture so that the fact of breathing does not harm the sound and you can sing well, while performing your life breathing efficiently. This is achieved thanks to the controlled breathing.
The difficulty is that as it is not a natural thing, it needs training. And that training is the one we propose in this new basic technical workshop.
What are we going to do in this workshop
- We'll do everything from basic breathing exercises to exercises that require more control.
- We'll work diaphragmatic breathing and activate the abdominal muscles to find our support.
- We'll learn to relax. Tension is the great enemy of sound!
- We will treat the main technical problems related to breathing as lack of support, high breathing, blockages in the abdominal area…
We'll apply everything we've learned to the songs we select.
Because breathing to sing isn't just about breathing
