Breathing for Performance – A Guide for Wind and Voice Musicians
This book provides excellent background information for any level of a musician who desires to know more about the physical aspects of breathing as they relate to the production of sound. It is easy to say “before there is music, there must be air” or to focus on the relationship of “song and wind”.
How does breathing work? As a trumpet player and asthmatic, Mark Boren has experience in the breathing. He takes a technical look at breathing and helps you understand how it works and how breathing “workouts” can help you make it easier and improve your breathing.
Filled with fun and common sense, Breathing for Performance is perfect for anyone who is a student of breathing and sound production and an excellent reference for teachers and students alike.
