It is essential that your breathing pattern is efficient and the best it can be as a poor breathing pattern can have a serious impact on your performance. Julie will be discussing the importance of having a good balance in your autonomic nervous system and how your breathing influences this. We will look at triggers that can make you breathe badly and the effects that can have on your body physiologically, leading to poor coordination of breathing, performance anxiety and reduce the quality of your singing. Join Julie as she provides the tools needed to assess a persons breathing, recognise abnormal breathing patterns and correct them.
