Sheepdog Posted June 9, 2010 Share Posted June 9, 2010 Hi, after reading the 4 Pillars, I've been a bit confused about TVS's definition and usage of breath support, and was wondering if some people more familiar with this method (maybe even Robert) could help clear this up. The 4 Pillars says that singing requires high volumes and velocities of air, which have to be squeezed out of the lungs by a well trained diaphragm, and that "breath support" means the amount of air being pushed out (ie more support = more air.) But I was under the impression from most other sources that support actually means fighting against the natural urge of the body of quickly releasing air, and that the "louder" and "more resonant" you want to be, the less air, and thus MORE support you need. Is this just a conflict of definitions? I'm not trying to start an argument, I just want to understand the process and explanations to the best of my ability. Thanks in advance!
