Today’s Target

​​Our ability to go further in our work depends on our Acting Instrument overcoming the control of our Daily Body.

​And nowhere does DB exert more control than when it comes to breath.

​Today we’re introducing the start of what we can do to push back.

To strengthen the muscles and build the habits of healthy, supported sound.

A practice that hands control to our Acting Instrument and unleashes our Production Potential.
