Breathing: The Ins & Outs

Breathing.  You do it all day every day… even when you’re sick, asleep or half dead,  But, do you find that when you are singing, all hell breaks loose?  Can you breathe when everything is on the line? How does it effect your high notes? Does it help you belt?  Does it help you switch from chest to mix to head? Or do you find that you run out of air when you sing?  Are you taking in too much?  Or too little?  Or, maybe you’re just wondering why everyone else seems to be able to get through these long phrases and you fall apart halfway through.  It doesn’t make sense!  You know it’s possible because you’ve heard people do it, but you don’t know how it’s possible for you because everything you try doesn’t work. 

Have faith! As a professional opera singer, musical theater performer and the lead singer in a band, I’ve been really lucky to have some phenomenal mentors in my journey that have given me pieces to this puzzle, but it really was my work as a teacher with thousands of singers over the years that has taught me what I believe to be true about how to breathe and control the breath while singing in a way that is really practical, simple and completely applicable to everything that singers do.

On Saturday, May 11, 2019 from 2-5pm, I’ll be answering your questions about breath, breath support, and using volunteers from the audience to help you negotiate how it works for your body and your unique instrument, all for less than the cost of a single voice lesson with me. Watch the video introduction and click the link below to register.

I really, really hope to see you there! Happy singing and I’ll see you soon!  ~Love, Hilerie
