Should I watch the lesson videos while training at the same time?
It is not necessary that you watch the videos at the same time as training with the exercises, however, you will find it most beneficial to work on the exercises at the same time as viewing the videos. By doing so, you will be reminded in real time of all of the areas of focus of that particular exercise as well as the benefits, allowing you to do your best.
Once I complete the program, then what?
Once you complete the Air Revelation four-week training program you will immediately feel the benefits and hear the improvements in your singing/playing. For an added challenge, go one to complete an additional week of the "advanced level training".
You will find that this program will be most beneficial to you if you continue cycling through the Air Revelation program continuously in order to sustain the improvements in breath support and to refine your abilities and training. By cycling continuously through the program you will come to an even greater understanding of what works for your body and how to be most efficient in your breathing and exhalation. You may also train with individual videos for help with specific issues that you are working on in your singing/playing (head to the All Exercises page for the right exercise for you).
