Warm-up Step 1 - “Introduction to Deep Core Breathing”

In this exercise you will be learning how to feel air inhaling to your core.

 

Warm-up Step 2 - “Core Breath & Release”
In this exercise you will work on inhaling to your core and exhaling from your core with the “h” sound, free from tension. This is the method by which you will control your breath support with your instrument.



Warm-up Step 3 - “Core Breath & Exhalation”
In this exercise you will become more in tune with your body, and understand how to inhale to and exhale from your core.


Quick Catch Breath Exercise
This exercise will develop your ability to inhale quick breaths to your full capacity while tension-free.
 


Exercise 2 -  The “Slow Lift” Exercise
This exercise promotes and strengthens your ability to begin phrases in your music with controlled and soft entrances, as well as using subtle crescendi. Here, you are training to gain control of the start of breath support.


Exercise 12 - The ”Ball Blaster” Exercise
In this exercise you will work on combating tension when moving large amounts of air very quickly. This exercise has very practice application to your music, in particular, when playing or singin accented notes or when you desire to bring notes out of the texture.



Exercise 13 - The “Hyper Ball Blaster” Exercise

This advanced-level exercise requires you to exhale very quick and measured bursts of air, making the most challenging requirements of breath support in your music easier to execute.

 


Exercise 14 - The ”Stabilizer Up” Exercise

This exercise builds upon the skills you developed in exercisees No. 5 & No. 6. With practice, your ability to execute this exercise will translate into even greater control of breath support, giving you the flexibility needed to more easily make quick shifts of character and dynamics in your music.


 

Exercise 15 - The ”Down to Stabilizer” Exercise

In many ways the opposite of Exercise 14, with practice, your ability to execute this exercise will translate into even greater control of breath support, giving you the flexibility needed to more easily make quick shifts of character and dynamics in your music.
