MOLGATO: Appoggio, Breath Coordination & Seamless Phrasing
Saturday, December 9
*For singers and wind players.
Professional Breathers, this one’s for you.
The secret to seemingly seamless breathing is simple: cooperate with your inherent design, and learn to fly with it.
In this workshop we will be soaring into principles of aerodynamics, the recoil of the respiratory mechanism, and dissolving unsophisticated techniques that keep breathing efforted and replace them with extraordinary respiration practices.
Have you ever noticed that when people say “support” they often seem to mean “work hard”? That is nonsense. When you complete this workshop you will truly understand support, how to cultivate the conditions for endless phrasing, and how full-body appoggio actually feels.
It is fully my intention that this workshop will change your life.
When: Saturday, December 9, 2-5pm Pacific/ 5-8pm Eastern
Recording will be available
Coaching spots are available and limited- message me to request one!
*This workshop is for anyone who sings or plays any wind instrument. Any and all humans are welcome.
