I’m trying to develop my breathing, and specifically my breath capacity. (I play piano and guitar, but I’m a beginner on recorder.)
I’ve been doing whole note scales (4/4 time, 80 bpm), but I usually run out of breath after about 6 bars. I’m wondering what a reasonable target should be. That is, about how many bars should a competent player be able to sustain when playing whole notes in common time at 80 bpm?
Yeah, I’ve watched some youtube videos on breathing and breath support, and that’s what has been lacking, for me. I’m working on it. “Breathe from your stomach” is a nice, concise way of putting it. Thanks!
