The Artful SInger | How to Breathe Book for Singers & Actors | www.theartfulsinger.comThe Artful SInger | How to Breathe Book for Singers & Actors | www.theartfulsinger.com “How to Breathe” offers a brief overview of anatomy as it pertains to sound production.  
But here’s what really makes it different:  practical application.  As you already know, 
every time you feel your teacher’s breathing you know that he/she is doing 
something different from what you do.  And even after a thorough lecture on anatomy, 
you still don’t know what to do to make your body behave like your teacher’s.  
Here’s the secret: MUSCLES DON’T COMMUNICATE VERBALLY!
When’s the last time you told your diaphragm to stay low and it obeyed?  
I teach singer’s breath (sterno-costal-diaphragmatic-epigastric) through a 
series of physical exercises that are designed to re-create correct coordination.  
Muscles learn through repetition.  So all you have to do is to make the 
commitment to do the exercises daily and to increase the difficulty as your 
body permits. (Increasing the difficulty will lead to increased strength which in 
turn will lead to increased endurance)  The rest will follow naturally.  
Consistent repetition over time will allow reflexive control of the muscles to 
become habit.  And conversely, wrong muscle repetition will make 
wrong coordination become habit.  
In addition to the book, I offer private “hands-on “lessons.  These sessions 
will check that you are doing the exercises correctly, adjust for any specific 
limitations you may have, and will “tweak” to meet your personal goals and needs.
