  4. You guys are weird, but at the same time I like what you do! 😀

  5. beautifully done.     Thanks for your wisdom on this.

  6. Even though I'm a percussionist, it was super exciting to deal with Mr. Sheridan today. I never really tried breathing gym until today, and it's pretty intense.

  7. Класс для музыкантов с проблемами класс!!!

  8. what the song called that is playing during advanced training 3

  9. I love these guys, thanks for posting!!

  10. It really works!!! Nice condenced version of the breathing gym. The first dvd is good to learn the exercises, but too long to practice everyday. Thanks to Sam and Patrick from Italy!! Fortissimo!!

  14. не очень

  15. yeah your right i play oboe

  16. These guys are goofy. But they taught me well.

  17. GREAT for oboe players

  18. Probably the best video for any wind player ever!!! Breathing and air is the most important thing. Share this with everyone who plays!!! Love this! Seen improvement every time I do it!

  19. You're using your throat to breathe instead of your abs.
    Try it again.

  20. como puedo conseguir en dvd?

  21. Great MC, Pat, at SVSU. I was there representing our brass quintet and taking notes. I'd like to get a copy of the Breathing Gym DVD. Thanks.

  22. I do it maybe once a day or once a week depending. Either way, you'll get results. Sorry this is kind of late, by the way, haha.

  23. incredible orchestral musicians, too!

  24. 1/32's!!!!!!

  25. Then you're not doing it correctly.

  26. thank you so much guys! im training for supernote haha

  27. omg this vidio is amazing

  28. Well you must so awesome then huh.

  29. i didn't feel light-headed at the advanced (7:13-9:35)

  30. six people fainted

  31. wow this is some intense exercises im feeling so lightheaded but my voice improved so much ty so much for this

  32. I haven't really understood Patrick's last words at the end of the vedio. Haha

  33. Ive did this for two years

  34. I've been doing these exercises every day for about 3 weeks now and I still get light-headed during the "advanced exercise". I imagine *eventually* it would go away but I'm really not worried. That exercise is asking your body to process a huge amount of oxygen in a way which is really quite unatural. The light headed feeling is basically a side-effect of an inbalance of oxygen/carbon dioxide in the brain caused by hyper-ventiliating and over-breathing

  35. That 20 count exhale. mmm!

  36. i do this all the time and it helps me a lot my choir director and our student teacher had me do this in my practice and it helped me A LOT

  37. yep Jacobs is like the king of breathing

  38. Breathing Gym is the best thing to happen to wind playing since Arnold Jacobs! I recomment this to anyone concerned about effective air movement for good music.

  39. band geeks + 30 years. love it!

  40. @SweetlyDissonant i can say that i used to get veery light headed and faint with that exercise also but the more you do the exercises the less dizzy you will become 🙂

  41. Never mind, now that I'm getting used to the exercise, it doesn't make me dizzy any more. 😀
