Just breathe... Accent Method with Linda Hutchinson
If this course had been anything other than lying down I probably wouldn't have accepted a last minute place on a weekend when I had a concert on the Saturday evening as well. But this was Accent Breathing, and as I rightly thought, there was a lot of relaxing to be had. Also known as Accent Method, this is evidence based breathing training that address and benefits all aspects of voice use, speaking and singing. It was very restorative and reminded me of how much effort we singers make when we don't really need to! Lots to take home and practice straight away - and I will be building cool downs into my sessions too. I've also enjoyed practicing the drum rhythms. There's a book by Linda and Ron Morris called "If in Doubt, Breathe Out!" which explains why Accent breathing is so effective and gives you a simple ten week course to follow too.
