MIAGD: Relearn breathing

MIAGD: make it a great day

I love this meme…


We are born equipped with so many essentials, and even more additional essentials. 

Imagination is key to a child’s development.  It encourages them to seek, to learn, to question.  As we grow up, imagination is squelched on so many levels. It’s sad.  

Breathing is actually another essential whose naturalness is rerouted as we grow. 

Wind and vocal musicians require a breathing technique that is actually quite natural at birth. 

Vocalists must learn to fill up with air in their stomach, raise their upper palate, and place the tone in an area of the face where bone tissue serves as amplification, and to provide a resonant tone. 

A baby’s cry can bring down an avalanche thirty miles away. 

Why?

Because they are born with all the items vocalists/singers are required to master. 

Somewhere in the maturation process, we lose the naturalness of true breathing.  People attempt to relearn proper breathing via martial arts, yoga, or other means. 

Imagine what we could be if we aged without growing up.

Make it a great day, Folks!
