Looking closer at the topic of breath support with Eli Epstein

- - Please visit: Balu Musik - -

Those familiar with my teaching know that I almost never use the term “support,” and when I do I add disclaimers about the word and what I mean. I have felt it to be too much of a vague term to use often, and one that means different things to different people.

That is not to say, however, that I do not advocate for support and playing with a supported sound. It is something that I worked on in my studies, mainly with reference to good breathing. This is one angle to use, but now thanks to Eli Epstein I now have a better and more physiologically accurate way to describe it.

Continuing his series of videos, this new one on Breathing and Breath Support is excellent! I love the comparison to picking up a chair, that is exactly the correct feeling and a great way to visualize it. The direct video link is here. https://youtu.be/2LccA6A_M1s

While looking at videos, there are two others Epstein produced in the last year or so well worth a look:

Bravo to Epstein to continuing to add great content to the Internet, I’ll be watching to see what else is posted as the series continues.
