We’re here to help you increase your lung and breath capacity for better performances.
Tip #1 – Use the HISS exercise to improve lung capacity
Try taking a deep breath in, and then make a consistent long “s” sound as long as you can. Your goal with this exercise is to repeat this regularly over a period of days and weeks to become a more efficient breather.
Tip #2 – Use the “paint the rainbow” drill
The rainbow, in this case, is a mental trick for visualizing a meter for how long you’ll hold a note. It’s a form of self-conducting. If you’re a visual person, visualizing the length of your note by visualizing your note along with a rainbow-style meter can help you deliver the proper note length.
