I'm cutting off the last note of a phrase too soon! How can I fix that?

I am in the habit of cutting the last note of a phrase of words too quickly and not holding the note as long as I should.  I was wondering if there is a lesson in the TVS program that addresses this problem? I want to get to the point of breaking that habit and holding notes as long as they should be and have it be second nature to do that.

    You already know it is a problem. That is part of the solution, being aware that you are  cutting off notes too soon. Work on your songs one phrase at a time or just work on the phrases that are causing problems. Practice using a backing track or a drum beat or metronome.

    Practice cutting off the note with the beat of the drums or the ticking of the metronome . La 234, breathe 234, La 234 breath 234 Start the note on the 1 hold until the next 1.  Also do La 234 1234, breathe 234, La 234 1234, Breath 234 etc. Starting on the 1 and holding for 2 measures and ending on the first beat of the 3rd measure.
