The Breath Machine

The breath is the core of our singing voice and developing the muscles used in the breathing process is essential for healthy singing.  There are four steps in the breathing process: Inhalation, Suspension, Exhalation and Release.  Over the next couple of weeks I will be covering each of the step in detail.  Before I start on the steps of breathing I thought it would be helpful to go over the anatomy of our "breath machine" I find it valuable for developing the control and coordination needed for our vocal development.  
To go over the tedious steps of learning our anatomy, I have included a set of four videos.  They are from The Singer's Voice, a video series by Joan Wall and Robert Caldwell.  Keep in mind these videos are extremely dry, but very informative.  As soon as I find an exciting way to teach the anatomy of the breath, you all will be the first to know!!  ENJOY!!
