How to Breathe Properly
June 15, 2016
When I tour (which is a privilege by the way) I play a piece called "The Lion of Judah" by Robin Mark, on a Bb Irish Whistle. In the middle of the piece there is an Irish jig which, as we play it, gets faster and faster and faster. The main question people ask me at the end of the concert is how did I get a breath, as it appears to be continuous playing without any break. Well, learning to breathe properly is really important if you are a singer or "wind" player. Sir James Galway explains breathing in this youtube video.
