The Breathing Gym Book and DVD: Breathing exercises for Band, Chorus, and Orchestral Winds by Patrick Sheridan and Sam Pilafian. Your students will stretch, breathe, move, and make noise along with Pat and Sam on the video/DVD.
Just include a few breathing exercises in the warm-up, or do an exercise or two between pieces for a change of pace and a chance to refocus. Beginning musicians can perform the basic exercises, and even professional musicians are challenged when the exercises are extended to the most difficult levels.
These fun exercises help them to:
- Increase airflow and stamina.
- Improve tone and breath control.
- Reduce body tension.
- Raise energy level and focus.
- Using The Breathing Gym in your rehearsal is easy!
