Daily Practice 10: Posture, Balance, Breath.

In this video I am practicing a Major 7 #5 chord while focusing on my posture, my balance and my breath.  I’ll be descending by half step from concert Bb Major 7 #5.  While doing this I’m focusing on balance through the awareness of the weight distribution on the bottoms of my feet, my posture by elongating the back of my neck and striving to lift the crown of my head gently toward the ceiling, and breathing deeply and calmly between the phrases or keys.  By allowing enough space to pass between each phrase I can slowly ingrain these habits which I believe help you play and perform well, especially in the context of a group.

~Enjoy!
