Re: Breath control tips?

It is a lot harder for singers! Do you think so? I think that my experience singing helps me to read more effectively. :hmm: Oh, or did you mean that singers have to worry about breath control when they sing more than narrators do when they narrate?! :lol: Singing will help, and yes, they have long...

Re: Breath control tips?

It is a lot harder for singers! Reading should be relatively easy. If you are too conscious of your breathing it will make it worse. Just forget about it and take mightyfelix's advice. Breathing is part of life and speech. I tried to give up breathing once or twice but always someone would bring me ...

Maybe something Is trying to tell you that that you need a better and more stable DAW!

Section 9 "The Oval Portrait" PL OK Section 10 "The Pair of Gloves" Pl OK Section 11 "The Artful Touch" PL OK :clap: I saw on All Creatures that "lurcher" doesn't refer to some kind of gait, but to a thief. So, these lurcher dogs are sort of canine pack rats. ha That would be a good Sherlock Holmes...
